DRZ400SM Jetting & Exhaust


JDinLakeside

Since there is soo much talk about jetting DRZ400's with air box mods and exhaust mods I thought I would post my recent results. The mods to my new 2006 400SM went for the most part well.. Learned alot of lessons with my DRZ-400S .The mod part list is: Yoshimura 2165500-SA, DynoJet 3110.001, K&N SU-4000, assorted 4mm Allen head machine screws, and a MotoBits footpeg eliminator stolen from S model. Ebay has MotoBits kits avalible.

1. First I removed all the plastics, seat and tank; I also temporarily removed a couple of the factor zip ties to make room to work.

2. Remove TPS from carburetor, gas line; removed vacuum line from gas petcock, removed vacuum line from gas shut-off valve.

3. Removed throttle cables from carb.

4. Removed gas tank.

5. Loosened right heel guard and dismounted rear break reservoir from frame.

6. Removed bolts at lower frame holding rear fender assembly.

7. Loosened the clamp of the manifold side of the carburetor and the clamp at the rear which connects to the air-box.

8. Raise rear fender – I used an old cardboard box to hold it up in place.

9. Rotated carb and wrestled that booger and out!

10. Installed DynoJet stage two jet kit – 155 main, DynoJet needle (2nd clip from top) and slide spring – when I removed the bowl – I used a needle nose vice grips to break the screw loose – then threw the screws away and replaced them with 4mm Allen socket machine screws of the same length.

11. Drilled out idle mixture screw plug – set idle to 3 ½ turn out from bottom.

12. Re-installed carb - (Note: I also replaced the screws for the TPS with 4mm Allen head machine screws, washers and lock washers.)

13. Removed factory header, exhaust can and passenger foot pegs.

14. Installed new Yosh header pipe – left loose.

15. Separated and installed Yosh mid pipe.

16. Installed exhaust can; tossed the steel spacer and installed the new exhaust mount to the hole rear of the factory mount – I think the Yosh directions may be wrong.

17. Reattached the rear break reservoir and installed and tightened up all remaining frame and mount points, then tightened the header pipe at the engine exhaust, and reinstalled the factory heat shield to the mid pipe.

18. Cut a 3 inch square template from cardboard and drew lines on top of the air box with a grease pencil.

19. I then used a sheetrock knife heated up with a propane torch to cut the 3x3 hole in the top of the air box.

20. Removed stock air cleaner element and installed K&N filter.

21. Reinstalled tank, plactics and seat, cleaned exhaust system with Windex.

1st Test Run

22. Bike was difficult to start –needed full choke (man I should have learned from experience with the DRX 400S!) I finally got it start- but it ran like crap.

23. Run the bike up the street and promptly run out of gas.

24. Roll bike back to garage and do a visual inspection.

25. Put the vacuum line on the gas petcock

2nd Test run

26. Bike starts easily, idles wells and runs great…

27. Removed rubber inserts in footpeg, passenger strap in seat, front reflectors, trimmed rear fender and applied appropriate decals. Performed 1st Oil and Filter change (it had a 100 miles onthe bike.)

If I left out some steps I apologize – but I think you can get the gist of things…

      I see quite a few 14 / 47 gear ratios along with 15 / 47. But my question is can I get away with a 15/ 48 on my DRZ 400s without adding links to my chain?

      Has anyone with an E or S changed their forks out for an SM forks?
      I generally do more road with my E (17" wheels fitted) and prefer the USD look. I have also spoken to Racetech here in Australia and they have confirmed that the SM forks are better fork for road use. However racetech brought up a important point that I did not take into account. The SM forks are shorter which will change the geometry quite significantly meaning that that the rear will have to be lowered to compensate. Racetech has advised that if you just change out the forks, you will lose front end grip.
      I picked these forks up for $100.00. Came with what you see in the photo as well as the speedo and front caliper. As it is off a 07, I will need to service the forks.
       
      Any advice??

      I have a brand new 2018 DRZ400S. I'm not new to bikes I've had quite a few bikes in the past. But I am new to the DRZ400 and my question is. I'm in the process of breaking my bike in I have 80 miles on it and it seems like every now and then when I put it in 5th gear I'm getting a shuttering feeling that I have not experienced before. I don't know if it will smooth out over time as the bike is broken in or if anyone else has experienced this themselves. It doesn't happen every time and I'm not bogging it down at all even though I do weigh 240 lbs. I know what bogging down feels like and this is something different any help would be appreciated thank you

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
