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…

      Hello, Im new here but I read TT forum pretty long time but I never had problems which I didnt know how to solve them:).
       I have a DRZ400S. I had a problem with no charging but I solved it, I cleaned connectors and it has 13,5V when idle. But when I blip the throttle voltage drops down to about 13V. I checked connectors and wires, everything is OK. I checked the stator,  it has about 32V AC when idle. In revs it have simply 60-80V AC. There is 2,5ohms between all three contacts. No conductivity between stator and ground.
      And here starts the funny thing: I have two friends with DRZ:
      1st: OEM stator, 13,5V idle charging, in revs drops down to 13V  - no free power mod
      2st friend: third party english stator for about 170USD, 14V idle charging, NO DROPS. - no free power mod.  I checked this alternator: 25V when idle, and about 50-60V in revs and 1,5omhs.
      I borrowed regulator from 2nd friend and tested it on my bike, but same 13,5V and drops down.
      I dont know why the charging voltage drops down, 13V is very bad for charging a battery on long trip. I want to go about 3000-4000km trip in two weeks and I dont trust it :(.
      Thanks.

      Hey guys, my buddy was messing around with my 2001drz400e and I guess he poked a hole in the bottom of my carb. I was having some fuel leak issues after installing the raptor petcock, with the thought to tighten what we believe was the fuel screw at the bottom of the carb ( was as loose as a tooth) a puncture happened to the bolt right next to it. Not too sure where or how to go about fixing this.

      From an 06 400sm. Shrouds are new. They had graphics on them. I decided to go a different route. PayPal and you pay shipping.

      On my 2008 rmz 450, at 1/4 throttle there's this horrible studder. It started about a month ago. The bike has about 70 hours on it i bought it later last year and never had a problem with it. The only thing that i changed on it was the header pipe it had the stock one and i tweaked it where it was making a weird noise so i replaced it with a stock one.
      Things i have tried............................
      New spark plug
      Cleaned the air filter 
      Oil change 
      Checked the valves one exhaust is on the loose side but not out of spec.
      I may try injector cleaner but idk if thats ok for these bikes.
      Any help is appreciated thanks in advance
