  1. 10A with 12V would be about 120W, reaching approx this level fuse will blow.
  2. haha, been there, but i managed to get it out on my own at 0:38 there's a hex bolt, just loosen it and take the shaft out
  3. idk if it's he normal practice, but I had the similar problem after fall. the cure was simple - find something immobile (like wall or tree) roll your bike with front tire next to it so that when you turn it hits the wall. and just bounce it with force until straight. I've heard those off-road forks are meant to turn in clamps rather than twist the fork. But if you're not lazy, do as dirt-dude advised :).
  4. No, that's not the case. Low voltage current can't jump even tiny air spaces. If it's not in contact there is smth else. And if it was in contact i guess you would've noticed it by sparks and/or heat :D. To find out what's the problem you would need a voltmeter. On disconnected battery (or the bike off) the voltage should be over 12V, while starting - around 10V, when started and working - around 14V
  5. you can always tighten it, perhaps he loosened it for educational purposes anyway it pretty well displays the problem and how to solve
  6. regards your idling concerns check out this
  7. I would try to clean it all as good as possible (has to be dry), run a little bit, starting with some idling and trying to locate where the oil is coming out. And also would test that bolt if it's not loose.
  8. Well, perhaps I misunderstood smth, but google on those part numbers works pretty well, the first link from each gives me this: http://www.ktmworld.com/product/50301093000.html http://www.ktmworld.com/product/50301092000.html
  9. Nice! Glad you're ok, the moment took me unaware and I felt as almost I was going into trees when it happened! I think I pretty much shared your emotions on that second
  10. Easy pull is a key here, I think. This is achieved by increasing travel of the lever. So if start point is the same as for original, the full disengagement will be closer to the bars (or never happen). Spacer could help here.
  11. When you tighten the cable so that the arm moves in the zone where it would no stay without cable (no free play), it is too much already. That means the clutch is partially disengaged all the time and under heavier loads will slip. As a consequence it will wear faster. How faster I can't tell. Perhaps you are fine with that, then just test it on the move in 5th gear with disengaging the clutch - throttle in - engage clutch. That's the most load you can easily put on it. If it slips after engaging even for a split second, is not good, but again, if you like it, you can use it, just know that it will wear faster. If I wanted the same as you I would look for adjustable levers leaving the free play on the cable. i.e. https://www.google.com/webhp?ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#tbm=shop&q=drz+400+adjustable+clutch+lever&* but idk which of them are good or not.
  12. If you mean me, then I will build it from scratch (when/if I get to it :D), so doesn't matter. If you mean the original author, I mentioned about compatibility, yes it would be much easier swap if it is just plug in
  13. So this is first time you try to fit LED turn signals (I mean before you had ones with light bulbs in)? In this case I would bet on turn signal relay. Actually I would guess LED signal would just stay consistently on, but perhaps it can be like this also. To check if those LEDs work, you can try to feed +12V to yellow wires (ground on black). If it works, then look for LED turn signal relay. I bought one for cheap recently, but haven't tried it yet as my DRZ is not used on street yet and LED turn signals still rest in box :). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011BTMDQM there are more. Also idk if it is just plug out/plug in situation as I don't have he original at all (E model). Perhaps locate your relay and try to find one with similar pins.
  14. There should be negative also otherwise it will not work. Look for metallic parts, most likely there is a bolt or smth for attaching. If can't figure yourself, give link to ebay item or send pics
  15. My first ride (Moto Cove, VA) and now the top end is being under construction
