[Discussion] DRZ 400 SM

Quick question on MCTT periodic adjustments.

 

If I'm not wrong, the correct way to adjust a MCTT is to remove the cam cover, adjust the tensioner to achieve the desired amount of chain slack.

 

How many of us here actually do that?

Past: KDX200, LC4 400, LC4 620, GSXR750WR

Present: CBR900RRY, Gas Gas EC250, XR250L, XR250RV, XR400 (motard-ed), NX650 Dominator

Haha true enuff.

 

juz curious, is there any for drz?

 

not sure whether available here, but i have seen some that are attached to the bar ends from the rizoma catalogue - very much like those fixed on mountain bikes when younger. well, those are the closest i can think of if u are hunting for hm-lookalikes.

 

as a driver, i am always worried abt the wider bikes hitting the side mirrors as they slip inbetween cars. while the hm mirrors look cool (and perhaps that's all there is to those flippers), it adds to the unnecessary width. spore roads are already crowded enough. and this is just my humble opinion.

It's normal.. The header will not affect muchh performance in this case..

 

Read the my FAQ for more info on exhaust..

I believe I cover quite extensively on it..

Any questions ask here..

whats the general price for 03, 04, 05 and 06 drz? anyone here selling? i dun really see older drz around

 

Production of DRZ starts from year2000, since then there's isn't much changes to the engine except for some emission and powercut..

 

04 and below will be E model, it comes with offroad rims.. No more E models is registered after 04..

05 till now is SM models.. Only SM models comes withh inverted forks..

 

A 02 E model with motard rims and inverted fork was sold at $7K after renewing COE..

05 model with minimum accessories should be abt 8K..

 

The funny thing abt scrambler/motards is that they dun depreciate that much compared to sportsbike.. A sportsbike will lose half of its price by yyear 3 due to the newer models coming out every year..

 

For DRZ, its been the same look for 10 years..

guys, i need a stiffer spring rate(rear) from the stock ones. any advice????

 

The spring can be adjusted harder. If you have tried that already then you would need to get a spring with a stiffer rating.

Some additional tips:

 

Things to take note when buying bike:

1. Compare the insurance prices

2. Compare the parts availability and waiting time

3. The shops/mechanics that can repair the bike

4. Resale value of the bikes

5. Sitting posture for rider & pillion

 

 

Need to run in the engine first during the required running-in period after overhaul, change the engine oil n oil filter at required intervals, you can feel the surge of power once the engine has been broken in, then can wack the bike.

 

Bikes manufactured recent yrs have higher tolerance level thus seldom have the need for overhaul.

 

Improper modification of bikes might caused pre-mature damaged/spoilt thus having the need to overhaul and replaced faulty components.

 

 

Wat to look out for if you feel vibration when riding.

1. Wheel bearings

2. Steering cone bearing

3. Fork oil (Time to service fork)

4. Check for loose chain or worn-out sprockets

5. Rear shocks too soft (Time to change the shocks or rebuild them)

6. Check tire pressure.

hey just question regarding exhausts.. if let's say I buy a slip on LV and using gpr legal exhaust header will it still be legal? cos I'm getting my zee and it comes with gpr full system (not the gpe type). but I plan to change exhaust (maybe) or is this a good enough exhaust? cos bike will just be for commuting. thanks bros..

from what i read here, the older models of the ACCT are the ones which have the problems and needs to change to MCCT. But i dont think it will do any harm if u use the mcct either. lets just wait for someone to reply yea

why mix and match?? most of the street legal exhaust (even when mix and match) will not give any big differences in power..

but in your case of mix and match, when law catches up with you, you will be fined $500 for modifying your street legal exhaust.. just use whatever that comes with your bike now, and save up for some other full system like LV full system (new type with CF endcap) or Yoshi full system..

seriously, why change back..? which part of this thread says it's not good to change it to MCCT???

just continue using the MCCT for abt another 6 mths then change your cam chain..

 

MCCT works best when used on a new bike (with new cam chain).. it gives constant tension/slack to the cam chain, unlike ACCT which operates with a spring to give variable tension at different RPMs..

even you used the bike for just transport, MCCT is a good to have.. since you already got it install, dun bother to take it out.. it's not gonna do any harm if you dun race your bike..

you are right, but no one actually confirmed the fact that recent years ACCT works better..

for ease of mind, and for the price of the MCCT, it's a good to have to install..
