I've got the stock bars with these risers. But I'm 6'4 and its still a bit short. How much more rise do those bars give and do the cables and everything reach fine?

IMG_3232.JPGI figure I've gained about 4" from stock setup.

i had to reroute the throttle cable as you can see in the photo

the clutch and front brake line is at the max . Any higher and I would need longer lines

i also changed the location of the ignition

Nice. Reminds me of a visit to a friend's house in Westfir a while back. Beautiful area. We ate a lot of berries and filberts.

your bike always looks to me like it has two rocket boosters back there :-)

The roads out of Westfir are amazing. I've ridden the Aufderheide hundreds of times on my sportbikes. Up the other way past Hills Creek Reservoir are great DS rides over the mountains 3 directions.

      I know y'all have probably read thousands of drz engine noise complains, but this one is different. I just bought the bike, a 07 drz400sm with 9k miles, and this is my first drz. Likewise, it struck me how noisy the engine was. There is an annoying ticking that I assume is the cam chain and I plan on buying an mcct soon, but that is not the issue. It seems that in the mid rpm range, especially in low 2nd gear (because of low ambient noise) there is an almost siren like noise coming from the engine, pulsing. It's hard to tell what it its, but it gets louder and much more noticeable after the engine is nice and warm. I'll try to post an audio sample as soon as I can. Also, the pulsing seems to speed up with an increase of speed and doesn't pulse but rather stays constant while revving in neutral. It's noticeable when in neutral as well as other grears and throughout the rpms, but is especially noticeable while holding constant rpm. (The sound is not there during deceleration) Could this be the cam chain? I'm very new to the drz and I'm not sure if there is something that I should take care of before it locks up on me or if I'm just being paranoid. With the limited amount of info you have, tell me if you know what it could be. Thanks.

      Bought a 2016 Suzuki DR-Z400SM back in September, put two hundred miles on it or so and then bought a full Yoshimura RS2 system for it. Worked well for about 1,000 miles and then I noticed i have an exhaust leak where the header meets the engine. The local shop says the gasket has gone bad. I looked at the gasket compared to the stock one the other night and noticed the Yoshi gasket is just flat while the stock one has a ridge around the pipe. Anyway, I need to replace the gasket, and I was hoping to just take the stock one off the old exhaust and then put it on the new one, but they dont just slide off. So, how does one change a gasket?
       
      Thanks.

      I'm looking for a pit bike, budget around $600. Im not to worried about a chinnese brand im worried about size, I've been looking at a ssr 125 (either semi and manual), I'm 6'1 about 165lbs. I just wanna know if i'd be able to ride it pretty comfortably, obviously wont be as comfortable as a 250. let me know anything you got.
      Thanks

      I recently converted my DRZ-400E to a street legal by way of the tusk light kit. I am now blowing fuses. The wiring looks good, but I am wondering if I am using too much wattage for my standard 10 Amp fuse???
      Any suggestions?
