I've mentioned this in other posts, but this seems like the place to post it again.
The 2003/2004 R-1 throttle assembly is an easy swap (10 minutes), a cheap buy ($13.00 or less) and a BIG improvement in throttle operation. It makes your bike get to FULL throttle with less rotation, so you don't have to re-position your hand during full on/full off throttle transitions.
We have done this mod on the DRZ-SM, a KLR650, my wifes EX500, and many more. You will be amazed at how it transforms the throttle action of your bike.
(Don't do this on your liter bike! They have too much power, and don't need any extra help!)
My 2005 SM has FCR39MX, full Yosh stainless, 3x3, canister delete, more.

Have fun!,

Lonster

Hi Lonster, based on your post and others recomendation, i've ordered an 03 R6 throttle tube (same thing?) for my DRZ. I'll give the full report once it gets here. Did you have to trim the end of the throttle tube during install?

I also think a must have for the SM bike is the Acerbis SM fender. It makes freeway riding much more comfortable, as the stock fender is large enough to create some good drag. The only drawback to the Acerbis fender is that it will fling more water towards you.

I'm going to do the throttle mod as soon as my motor is broken in with an oil change and valve clearance check.

I believe the R-6 throttle tube is NOT a 1/6 turn, like the R-1 is. I have no experience with the R-6 throttle tube, so I cannot comment on whether it will work or not.
I know that the R-1 tube does work, and is priced accordingly. You may want to change your order or just be aware that the R-6 may be different.
I'll post a pic of my install later today.

Thanks for the info again. I will try to change my order, but if not, i'll just keep the R6 throttle tube as my spare (I have an '05 R6 as well) I guess, if I get bored tonight, i'll just swap the throttle tube from my current R6 and try it out.

Which year R1 did you get? '03 and '04 bikes are completely different.

They may be different, but as i recall, the throttle tube part # is the same on both.
Yep.

Dion...there is a weath of information on such mods at ThumperTalk..here is a link to the FAQs in the DRZ400 forum http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=440104

These bikes are a blast, hope to see you at Stockton sometime soon.

My second trackday at Sears with CLASS schools and I was so proud to finally have scuffed a knee puck in T11, that is until Reg Pridmore made up an amusing anecdote for the entire group about how he broke his leg in a crash once and now one leg is shorter than the other so only one of his knees actually touches down as he races around the track.....several snickers around the room and eyes on yours truly....aka 1kneedown

Sounds like a fun way to get into racing.

Let me know how the fork work goes, mine needs it bad since the weight loss program is apparently inoperative. Race Tech sells the tools so I think I may just do the spring (and possibly valve) swap myself.
