2006 Suzuki DR-Z400E

Off-road lighting includes a bright 55-watt headlight and an innovative LED-type taillight. The compact, bright and durable taillight features bright-red LEDs

Compact LED taillight mounted in a flexible base

Additional weight savings with magnesium valve cover, clutch cover, and magneto cover

Narrow profile with smooth transitions between the tank, seat and bodywork

Chrome-moly steel frame is torsionally strong with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube, and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank

A bolt-on aluminum subframe helps reduce weight and simplify maintenance

Long travel, 49mm cartridge-style forks feature adjustable compression/rebound damping and adjustable spring preload for all types of off-road terrain

A fully-adjustable rear shock absorber with high/low speed compression damping adjuster and aluminum swingarm for precise rear wheel control

Sure stopping power is supplied by a 250mm front disc brake with dual-piston caliper, and a 220mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper

Lightweight chrome-moly RM-style steel footpegs, and aluminum rims and hubs

 


ENGINE FEATURES:

398cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine produces strong low-rpm power

Compact 4-valve cylinder head with 36mm intake valves, 29mm exhaust valves, narrow 28° included valve angle and shim-under-bucket valve adjustment system

Automatic decompression system for quick/easy engine starts (also equipped with manual system)

SCEM-plated cylinder (nickel-silicon-phosphorous) is lighter and more durable than an iron liner with excellent heat transfer properties

Forged aluminum piston is 10% lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil cooling to the piston crown through a crankcase oil jet

Quick throttle response is provided by a Keihin™ FCR39 carburetor fed by 6-liter airbox, (CA. model - Mikuni BSR36) The left side cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter

Compact 5-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with separate outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance

Electric start system features a lightweight starter motor and a compact 6.5 amp maintenance-free battery. (Note: Kickstart system kit available - can be added to electric-start model, but does not replace electric system) See the Suzuki Genuine Accessory Catalog for the optional kickstart
