The Suzuki DR-Z400 is a dual purpose motorcycle. It is powered by a single-cylinder, 398 cc four-stroke engine. Its reliability, low price and decent performance have made it a popular dual-sport choice around the world.

Mix in street-legal capabilities and unmatched handling. For exceptional performance on the street, the DR-Z400SM offers remarkably smooth performance, along with a rush of torque across the powerband. For crisp handling, it features a lightweight, compact design, complemented by advanced suspension front and rear, including an RM250-derived inverted fork

 

The Suzuki DR-Z400SM is an excellent bike for beginners / commuters - cheap to run and maintain, easy to drive in town

(The above is extracted from sources from the internet)

Can go to thumpertalk.com or supermoto.sg for more related information, deals and tips

 

 

 

What is neccessary to be done or fixed on a stock DRZ400SM:

MCCT- Manual Cam Chain Tensioner where u can manually adjust the cam chain instead of the OEM ACCT (Automatic cam chain tensioner)

Factory automatic adjusters can back out when the throttle is suddenly closed at higher rpms.

This allows the cams to momentarily go out of time and can result in bent valves and/or serious engine damage!

Hydraulic tensioners have a tendency to put too much tension on the chain guide under high rpm/high oil pressure conditions, resulting in premature cam chain wear.

Installation of a Manual Cam Chain Tensioner will allow you to maintain the proper, constant cam chain tension necessary for reliable hi-performance riding and it will not backout.

 

PAIR System- If u have a aftermarket exhaust fixed, best to remove the PAIR system, or else will cause popping and unsteady deceleration, removing it won't give more power, may give a little better response and will give better smoothness.

 

Stainless Steel Brake Hose- Enhance braking feel.

Rubber hoses or mild steel fittings are cheap but we all know how rubber hose bulges under pressure, allows brake fluid to absorb water vapour from the atmosphere and that mild steel fittings rust.

 

BRAKING Disc- More friction coefficient, Better resistance to the heat, More initial braking power, More feeling on the lever, Better handling, Less weight, Thicker than stock disc.

 

UNABIKER Radiator Guard- Provide awesome side impact protection and help prevent radiator fold-back during a crash.

 

Axle Sliders- Protects front fork and rear swing-arm.

 

SME Rear Axle Slider Block- Additional protection with concurrence with the axle sliders, protects swing-arm, rear disc, sprocket.

 

ThumperTalk Skid Plate- Extra protection specially if for off-road purposes.

 

3X3 Air Box Mod- De-restrict the air flow and better performance with an aftermarket Air Filter. Remember to re-jet the stock carburetor to match the A/F ratio.

 

CFC Case Shields- Extra protection for Ignition and clutch covers.

The stock magnesium DRZ engine cases are both thin and brittle.

As a result, they are very vulnerable to damage (cracks & impact punctures) from the bike's shift/brake lever and rocks when the bike falls.

 

Handguards- Prevent clutch and brake levers from breakage/bent during a drop or crash.

 

Exhaust Slider- APA Muffler Slider is made from a specially formulated thick, tough, plastic material that resists wear and helps protect your muffler in the event of a crash, much like a frame slider does.

The slider clamps on securely and the material has built in lubrication molecules that let them slide and not grip the pavement like a soft piece of rubber would.

Road Racers are enjoying the benefits of Muffler Slider protection when they fall off. It can not easily slide off.

 

Remove the kickstand safety switch. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

If the kickstand is down the bike will not start.

On jumps and bumps the kickstand will bounce around momentarily killing your engine.

Thus I remove kickstand sensor.

 

Remove the clutch safety switch. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

If the clutch isn't pulled in, it will not start.

This just one more electronic switch to break from nowhere, so I remove this safety device.

IMO, stay stock on your headlights to prevent your wires from haywiring..

decorate it with stickers instead..

 

I've mod so many things on my bike, the headlight is still stock..

 

if you insisted, I may have a friend that maybe selling his KTM headlight 09 in black soon..

Hmm, by saying haywiring you mean messy? or the electrical circuit gets screwed?

How much roughly is he asking to let it go? :D

i used to have the KTM headlight on mine before. it seems that when you fix the KTM headlight, it is required to cut the wires to fit the connector head of KTM and if not done properly, could have chance of short circuit, loose connection etc etc.......i chged mine back to the original which i find it looks better, to me.

For those who upgraded their front brakes to the QTM package from a local dealer ie, oversized 320mm Braking rotor, Brembo 4 Pot caliper with the QTM caliper relocator... please check to make sure your rotor is engraved with "STX55D" on it.

 

If not you have been using a OEM replacement 310mm Braking rotor which gives you lesser braking power than your stock Nissin caliper due to rotor surface area that is in contact with the brake pads.

 

In short... you might have been shortchanged... you paid for a 320mm rotor but they give you a 310mm rotor which is much cheaper.

now i know why ppl calling me to ask abt the brake rotor issues..

 

I believe it's a misunderstanding from the bike shop..

not many ppl know abt the difference btw the 2 types of rotors (310mm VS 320mm)

 

now there's STX (bi-directions) and SK (uni-direction) 320mm rotor for DRZ..

SK is the newer version..

The issue here is about paying for a brake upgrade package which includes a 320mm oversized rotor but getting a 310mm rotor instead.

 

If you were the customer... would this be acceptable to you?

 

To put it crudely... its like paying for a Ferrari and getting a Toyota Vios instead.
