:applause:
I’ve just bought a brand new Suzuki DRZ 400 S and found that the present sprocket ratio doesn’t suit my needs. Because I’ll be using the bike mostly for the off road trials with a plenty tight turns in the forest around my place.
Present sprocket ratio on DRZ 400 S is 44 rear and 15 front. I’d like to swap it with the 47 rear and 14 front which will be much better for my needs.
Unfortunately I’m not sure about the chain length! I mean I do not know whether or no I have to change a chain in order to swap sprockets from 44/15 to 47/14.???
I think Suzuki DRZ 400 S has the chain #520 with 112 clips and have no information about DRZ 400 E.
Please if somebody knows for sure give me a feedback.
many thanks,

The E has a 112 link chain as well. I've been told that I could use a 120 link chain without a problem though.

As MAL said,, both DRZ's use a 112 link chain.. so swapping from 15/44 to 14/47 is a no change deal :applause:

I run 14/49 and 114 links.

120 links on stock sprockets might fit :bonk: , never tried it.. But if it does on a new chain,,, you'll be at the end of adjustment, the longest wheelbase, and no room to adjust as the chain stretches.

You can use 13,14, or 15 tooth front sprockets with a 47 rear using the original 112 link chain.

I was researching this exact question and came across a really cool calculator
gearingcommander.com/

looks like I might be able to get away with using the same chain for both my sumo and my dirt setups:banana:

A 110-link may fit but I doubt it. Most likely you'll need a 112-link.

NOPE. :cheers:

comes up about 1/8" short. stock S chain is NOT long enough for 14/47. this is an old chain too, so no way in hell a new one would fit.

Like I told you on ADVRider, you're chain isn't stock or has been shortened. The stock 112-link S chain easily accommodates 14/47 gearing. I'm running 15/47 on my stock 112-link S chain and its apparent 15/48 will work also. I suggest you go count the links and report back.

Ummm, yup,,it does :cheers:

Both the DRZ S and DRZ E use the same chain 112 links PN 27600-29F10-112.
The DRZ S comes with 15/44 gearing the DRZ E comes with 14/47 gearing .. the Chain fits BOTH sets of gearing as I listed.
If your not getting:thumbsup: it to fit, your doing something wrong :p

No worries man, im just glad to have you know it all types around - thats the whole point of goin to these forums, to seek info from those who know better than I.


on that note, where do you buy your chains? I usually buy most my stuff from rockymountain. I would buy from thumpertalk but their store is the most confusing thing ive ever found on the internet. I guess I also need a chain breaker cause my old one got permanently "borrowed"

im still wondering why the hell the p.o. put a 110 link on..

I usually buy wherever the deal is at the time, or if I need it quick run to my local store (Chaparral).
