  1. Does that replace both the case saver and the sprocket cover? I looked at their website and it's difficult to tell. Thanks
  2. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about. One picture is the case saver, the other is both the case saver and the cover. Not quite as billet and bling as I was thinking but it looks like it would work. Says it fits DRZ 400 Year 2000+, it doesn’t say e or s model but says it would fit 14 or 15 tooth sprockets. Think this would fit? Any comments? Other options? Thanks again. https://bboffroad.com.au/case-saver-suzuki-drz400-heavy-duty.html
  3. My understanding is that without that part, case saver, if the chain breaks it can jam up between the front sprocket and the case and crack the case. I’ve ridden for a long time and saw a chain break now and then when we were younger and broke but I’ve never seen it crack a case so I don’t know but I’d rather run one than not.
  4. Yes that's what I'm looking for but in a stronger design that fits a 15 tooth sprocket.
  5. I'm not sure either of those are it but maybe. The piece I'm talking about is between the case and the cover. It does two things, it has shafts that the cover bolt passes thru that stand the cover away from the case, also a piece of flat sheet metal cut in a semicircle is attached to the two standoffs and aligns with the centerline of the chain to keep it from jamming up if the chain breaks. If any of that makes sense. I looked for a picture but couldn't find one. So, do you think either of those two options replaces that part under the cover?
  6. It's a Kawasaki KLX400R, stock 14/47. Thanks for the response.
  7. Thanks for the topic and also the replys, I always learn something here, now I need one more thing.
  8. Not sure of the correct term but when I went from a 14 tooth front sprocket to a 15 I had to clearance that guard in front of the sprocket to clear the chain. I beleive it's purpose is to keep the chain from breaking the case if the chain breaks. So now I need an aftermarket replacement. Anyone know the correct and perhaps recommend a better than stock replacement that fits withoud modification? Thanks
  9. What are these kilometers and litres you speak of?
  10. Thanks. Well I won't be commuting on this bike but I do live in a big state where a 200 mile off highway ride is normal. I've had a camel tank before and I just didn't fill it up if I was riding close to the fuel. I can't find anything on dry weight, do you think the tank is much heavier than stock dry?
  11. Thanks for the input everyone. I’ve been reading other threads also and like most things internet opinions vary. I like the idea of the tank with built in air deflectors, seems like that design is going to carry fuel lower and more forward, so that looks like IMS and Safari. Looks like Clark and Acerbis use the stock air deflectors. Correct me if I’m wrong there. Opinions vary on fit and finish of the IMS tank which makes me shy away from it but on the other hand the Safari costs twice as much as the others. I guess I need some convincing that I should spend nearly $500 on a gas tank. Thanks again.
  12. I have a stock 2.6 gallon tank on my bike. It became abundantly clear yesterday that isn’t enough. So I’m looking for recommendations on larger tanks. Acerbis, Clark, ? Thanks for the input. 2003 Kawasaki KLX 400R
  13. It looks like it broke right above the last mounting point. I'd say flex created by the rider's weight concentrates at that location and produces a fatigue fracture. Sort of a design flaw really. I'd have it welded and ride on. Check the rest of the main frame for cracks frame

  15. Thanks for the suggestions and pics. I decided that the fork mount wasn't going to work for me, first pic, key sticks out into danger zone too much, so I came up with this.
