drz400s aft rack and bags


ebrabaek

Just finished making the aft rack from 3/8 id stainless. Bags I sowed from 18 guage polyurethane coated fabric.

Here is the full rundown of what i did.

The only thing so far that i did was the airbox mod with the sewer hose to block the sound. That restored the bike from running rich to normal mayby a bit lean at 4000 feet and 90-100 degr. I felt that there was more to be done. In went the k&n su-4000 filter.

Dynojet kit for the drz400s. From the kit i installed the following parts: Big spring, needle, clip for the needle. I changed the pilot jet to a 25 from stock 22,5. Installed the kientech fuel screw, and put in kientech stainles screws for the bowl. I decided to leave the stock main jet 142,5 i think. I really like the results. When i pull up the highway 5% grade to 5500 feet the bike for sure pulls stronger at a lesser throttle setting. 0 to1/4 throttle good response and pickup with only little backfire closing the throttle. 1/4 to 3/4 throttle very strong pickup especially from 1/2 to 3/4 throttle. Maby a bit room for improvement about 1/4 throttle. when the needle circuit picks up at 1/4 throttle there is a tiny hesitation, maybe so little not worth mentioning. I think i have to run it a bit more to home in on it. And then figure out what to change...maybe try lowering the needle 1/2 step with the suplied spacer. From 3/4 to 1/1 throttle the bike pulls strong. So i believe the choice of main jet is fine. In the next day or so i will do a spark plug test. I left the fuel mixture screw at 1 1/2 turn.as per kientech recommend. It needed a bit more fuel from idle to 1/4 throttle so I ended up with fuel screw 2 turns out.....nice.

I am in the process of taking all the covers and make a negative fiberglass mold, in which I will produce a carbon fiber replica of the original plastic cover. Have one done so far....looks nice. The pdf slide show is of the rack and bags. I welcome any questions at: ebrabaek@sbcglobal.net enjoy

      I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.

      Alright, so up behind my house I got a mountain full of trails to explore, but my dad won't let me go at it unless I have some sort of device that tracks my location and has the capability to send an emergency message in case I get hurt. 
       
      I was wondering if there were any good GPS tracking devices that would have those functions? 
       
      Thanks!

      Just bought a 2006 drz 400s. When I bought it the carb was leaking fuel because the guy I bought it from didn't know jack s*** about cleaning carbs. And when he closed the float bowl he managed to pinch the seal ring. I replaced the the seal and it seemed to stop the leaking. But I wanted to be sure so I sent the bike to a mechanic and he Confirmed I fixed the problem. But since I got the bike back I noticed that the bike sputters when I open the throttle fully. Does anyone have any ideas as what could be the problem.
