    When purchasing a kick start for an s model, do you have to buy the kit or can you just order e model parts?

    In the 90's I had a DT200R that had been done up by a pro, it also had a make shift sponge foam pre filter over the opening cut in the air box, somehow I am going to rig one up for the DRZ. Looking at it yesterday I was thinking of bending up a bit of 6mm wire into a frame to hold my pool filter sock.

    It might also have the added benefit of running a little quieter too.

    After spending too amny hours searching for the Mukini Flaot Valve part# for my 2002 DRZ400S, I ordered the wrong part from Thumper Talk Parts Store.

    Anyone have the part number for my Mikuni 29FB carb? I've got the leaking valve problem. probably the "O" ring, but might as well replace the whole assembly.

    Thanks in advance!!:clap

    That whole assembly is like 60+ bucks, i just replaced my o-ring and it fixed my leak right away,

    no need to buy the whole assembly, just take your o-ring to a auto parts store and match it up, they did not even charge me for it.

    I had looked at those, but was concerned that the rack only had 2 mounting points; therefore not much to stop it twisting under the load... plus they are too low and too far forward for the panniers I have.


    In July (our winter), I'll need to carry my Caribou (Pelican) cases for a very remote, rough, long & unsupported ride. I have made up a rack that works, but I know it can be made lighter and a bit narrower than what I have... I was just looking at easily adaptable options that could go the distance. I'm looking at approx 10-14kg per side for the pannier & contents (probably less, but I always like to allow for more). And no, I'm not changing from the Caribou luggage, It was chosen for a reason (several of them actually).

    Good choice on the luggage, saw an 1150 Bmer dropped on those, it only bent the mount a little, no more than a scratch or two on the side bag.

    I just replaced my o ring today.... Ended up buying a pack of doorman Vinton orings from discount auto for $8 and it had the size inside.

    Was looking at a DR 650 or a DRZ400 to put in the garage for some off road exploration on forest service roads, in north Georgia...I have a DR in my sites but want to make sure it's the one for my needs, and I have to wait a couple of months before pulling the trigger.
    I would be riding like 60% streets to get to the trails, so can a DRZ400 handle some freeway speeds at times?
    How much lighter is it than a DR?
    Is there significant difference in the two off road?

    Thanks for the info,

    Ive pulled 90 in 14/45 gearing, 65/70 mph cruising comfortably

    Gear for higher speeds and itll cruise 80 all day and night, no problems.
