4 Feb 2020 it was stolen in December, 2008 and I decided to buy the newer DR-Z400SM. Doesn't like to cruise much above 60mph on stock gearing. 20 Jul 2016 Yet, when used properly, and by properly I mean barreling into a corner then clicking into the next gear after exiting the apex, I think anyone who Please advise 1st and 2nd choice of sprocket size just in case 1st choice is out of stock. Chain supplied could also be another brand but it will be of comparable Select Your Vehicle: Select Year, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001
DR-Z400SM - Supermoto, first year 2005, street legal, comes standard with 17- inch (430 mm) sportbike inspired wheels, oversize front and rear brakes, RMZ rear
yep 14/47 is standard on the drz/e i have had this on 3 drz400's now. i find the gearing a bit high and with my rear sprocket and chain still good i am going to try a 13 on the front and see how it goes. went to the bike shops in echuca last week and no one had one in stock so i havent changed it yet. The E has 14/47 stock (I had two E's and an S model) and your S probably has 15/44. One in the front is like three in the rear, so that is a huge difference in gearing. Hey guys! So if this video isn't in 1080p I apologize, but here is the latest mod to my DRZ! It makes a WORLD of difference to change out your front and rear sprockets. I hope you guys enjoy and Suzuki's SuperMoto DR-Z400SM is based on the proven DR-Z400S so it combines Supermotard style and features in a narrow, lightweight street-legal package. This bike brings off-road soul and fun to paved roads. It’s not uncommon to take the SuperMoto down a twisty forest road, around tight canyon corners, or glide through commuter traffic.
While up in Ouray area a while back, I chanced to run into a DRZ-E rider up in Yankee Boy Basin. He suggested that I would get better all-around performance by changing the rear sprocket from the stock 44 tooth to the 47 tooth of the DRZ-E, and leaving the stock 15-tooth countershaft sprocket as-is.

On the other hand, I see no point in gearing it so tall that you're basically hoping to have the bike idling down the freeway at 75mph and having big gaps from gear to gear. When you're sport riding, that can be annoying, too. What I have used is a stock 15-tooth up front and 38-tooth and a 39-tooth rear sprockets. 14/42 is about equivalent to 15/45. It's shorter than stock S gearing, and many people ride the S on stock gears in technical terrain just fine. With something like an auto-clutch, a ratio in this range would be a non-issue for crawling along in any terrain. Im thinking about buying a drz 400 and I want to be able to go on fire roads and single tracks comfortably while still being able to get on the freeway and go 65-75 without worrying about the engine. Does anyone have a gear ratio that can do this? I was getting a little bored with the "stock" gearing on the DRZ400s. So I decided to torque it up. :) This video was actually cut short by a dead battery. But you can't really tell with the way which talks about dropping the gearing: "The DRZ400S comes with a 15 tooth sprocket in the front, and a 44 tooth in the rear. The DRZ400E comes with a 14 in the front, 47 in the rear. The front sprocket on the S has a rubber bushing around it, this is to keep noise down, and does not reduce vibration to the transmission. Here is a short video of me testing wide ratio gears on the DRZ in the hills. With a 16 tooth front sprocket and a 38 tooth rear, the gear ratio is 2.375, which is about 13% less than stock.
