Hi, Anonymous I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Gears---WHINE
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
15. Solid Lifters---TICK
16. Starters---CLICK
17. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

SOURCE: I have a ticking noise in my 2005 Suzuki 125 DRZ.

The thick layer of grease is probably gone from between the engagement pawls and the thing they push against (forgot the proper name). There should still be a thin layer there, but it does cause more noise. I've been riding a Deore 525 on the rear for the since mid 03, and the same noice popped up at about the same noise. As far as I can tell, don't worry.

SOURCE: I have a suzuki drz 125l 2004 model that currently

okay theres a couple possable things that can cause this .... carbon on the valves, ran hard,not frequent oil changes, low on oil, cheap oil, spark plugg is too long , too much oil somtimes causes this,crank case breather plugged,it all depends on the way it was treated in the past or the present
i change my oil about every 15-20 hours keeps debre down and less friction on engine,remember this is not water cooled! so use the best 10-40 oil or atleast good known oil and run some seafoam through the gas,it will take that carbon off . and if you dont have a inline fuel filter u should get one they really save carbs and there only $3.00 at oreily! hope this helps <walker>

Can you slowly increase the revs? It sounds like an accelerator pump or debris in the carb.

SOURCE: I want to download (PDF) a service manual for my Suzuki DL650

The following site has some DL650 manuals and they can be downloaded for free. The site has over 3000 manuals so the list may take a minute or so to build. Even if the manual downloaded is a year or two off, the service procedures will be the same. Cosmetic changes are the usual differences year to year. www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Please rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: 2004 Suzuki VL1500 Intruder LC Motorcycle backfire

If they cant duplicate it your good.Usualy with backfiring i would make sure to eliminate any exhaust leaks. The dealer is inexperienced at solving compound problems,(sorry) not picking a fight, but sometimes cleaning is not goog enough,I went through this with a 1400 Intruder.several attempts were needed to get the two carbs level on the same line with each other.so the floats would work properly together,then set fuel flow and the air flow through the ventouri in the carbs.Also i had to make these adjustments while level (not on side stand) The floats were very sencitve to needle valve to seat adjustment(bent to open or close some of the flow)

This is nomal for a DRZ 125 because of the short piston skirt. You get much the same annoying sound on the 250/400's also, don't stress, thats just how it is.

Gas Mileage for 2005 Suzuki DRZ400S


40-50 depending on how you drive it and where you go. Hard riding off road less mileage. Street riding taking it easy better. Check out www.drz.info for some good tips on the DRZ. Also www.thumpertalk.com under the DRZ section is great info and more than you ever wanted to know about your bike. I'v had mine for 2 years now and love it. If your going to go off road at all get diffrent tires. The stock death wings are dangerious off road. Good choice in bikes.
