Seized my motor today

i saw it at the MGM where i work. ive got a DRZ SM i commute with.

and yea, you need to look around for best prices. TT OEM store also charges handling of a few bucks. just depends.......i just made an order and it was about $60 cheaper from TT and it was online elsewhere...and it was only a $200 order. so percentage wise, it was a benefit. its hit and miss.

generation MX is the TT suplier, you can see prices without being a member (GMX and TT), so im confused on whats the prob.

so if I'm understanding this right, I can get a stock 400 crank/rod, and the big bore kit from lukes and end up with a 420.

OR

I can get a 426 crank/rod, cylinder, piston, etc and have a 426?

that's pretty much it, alright. You can also use either your crank with a 426 rod/bearing or a 2000 426 crank, and combine that with a big bore kit for a 426 and have a 444.

Do you have WR gears in the tranny? For prolinged riding on the street wouldnt you be better off going with a WR tranny? Especially since you have it all torn apart. Gray, correct me if I am wrong but wouldnt the WR gears be better for street riding?:banghead:

Yea it would. About $550 though.

Hah, yeah I remember parking next to you on halloween. Some of my friends were staying there and I went over to check out all the slutty costumed chicks in the casino.

I had no idea GMX and TT were the same, so I guess I'm just out $10 now.

As for the tranny, I'm sure it'd be better for the street, but with my budget it's just not gonna happen. I have no clue how I'm gonna come up with the money just to fix the thing to begin with.

Thanks everyone for all the info on what fits what. There are so many combinations of parts that it's hard to get it all straight. As of right now I'm gonna build it as a 426 at a minimum, possibly 444 depending on cost difference. My crank is junk so if I'm gonna replace it I might as well go all the way since it costs about the same. Heck it looks like I'll actually save a few bucks goin with the 444 kit over buying new OEM parts.

cool. i remember seeing oil leaking on your bike too. hmmmm.

Funny thing about that. It never actually leaked, at least the level never went down. But for whatever reason it'd always drop just a little out the breather when I parked it. Just enough to mark it's territory :banghead:

Thanks for the links, I'll check em out.

EDIT: That last one is in the same city I live in. Gonna call him tomorrow!

whats the verdict?

how bout an update

Nothing new to post. The guy with the 426 motor wanted almost as much as parts will cost me, so I'm not gonna go for it. I'd rather have an all new rotating assembly, and numbers that match my registration.

I did however TIG on some swing arm spool mounts today though. I didn't get pics, but I will. I'll also be painting the frame, swing arm and a number of other bits & pieces after the new year. When I'm done it should be an all new bike.

ah. i saw another motor pop up on ebay yesterday....so i was wondering.

good luck!

or you can get the 426 crank or rod and rebuild your crank, and get the Luke's Racing 426 big bore and end up with a 444...

While it's apart, you should consider getting that frame powdercoated. I know, additional expense that doesn't add anything to the performance, but they sure look nice when they're like new again.

Actually I was planning on tearing the bike down for paint that day anyways. I wont be going with powdercoat because it cant be touched up easily, and if it gets hit by a rock or anything it can crack and flake off. I'll be painting the frame, swing arm and a bunch of misc. parts satin black in the next week or so.
