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…

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally Star Earns Third Overalll at the 2018 Edition of the Event in Morocco
      April 20, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Determined to wrap up his week-long adventure in Morocco on a high, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla has topped the fifth and final stage of the Merzouga Rally to secure a solid third overall in the event’s final overall standings. Continuing to make progress Andrew Short has claimed a spot inside the top 10 in the overall.
      Featuring a mass, motocross-styled start in the dunes of the Merzouga Desert, the fifth and final stage of the event saw Pablo Quintanilla put in a dominant performance. Posting the fastest time for the day, the Chilean rally star solidified his strong third position in the overall standings.
      Putting in his best individual stage performance Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew Short crossed the line in eighth position. Wrapping up the Merzouga Rally 10th in the overall, the American is content with the progress he made during the week in Morocco.
      The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team will return to action at the third round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the Atacama Rally in Chile on August 11/19.
      Pablo Quintanilla: “Today was a really fun stage. We had the motocross start and it was good to battle with the guys from start to finish. I got off to a good start but five or six kilometres into the stage I had a small crash that dropped me back a few positions. Then I had to push until the end and 10km before the finish I got the lead back and was the first to cross the finish line. It felt really nice to win a stage that way. Overall, I’m satisfied with my third position in the overall. This was a tough race with tricky navigation and to be on the podium is always good. We continue to gather experience and look ahead in the races to come.”

      Andrew Short: “I really enjoyed this week in Morocco. Especially this last day was really fun, bringing back memories from my days racing motocross. Before the flag dropped the nerves were there and I was maybe a bit late off the start. It was a good experience racing alongside the fastest guys in the dunes and being able to see their pace. The adrenaline kicked in and I had some really good fun. Overall, the week has been great for me. I enjoy the atmosphere in rally racing and I feel I am improving, getting closer to the top guys. I might still have a long way to go but I understand it needs to be done step-by-step. This week was a positive step in the right direction.”

      Hi All,
       
      I was just given a red Suzuki "quadmaster" 50.  This is the 2 stroke oil injected quad with red plastics.  I have a couple of questions that I am hoping for some help with:
      1. Any advice on where to find the VIN #?  I would like to figure out what year it is so that I can properly order parts. The only numbers I have located are on the engine at the base of the cylinder on the pull-start side.
      2. What is everyone's actual experience with Chinese-made carbs and top end kits?  The reviews on Amazon and Ebay are either "total garbage" or "best thing ever". I don't know what to think.
      3. This quad has a ton of hours on it, but it does run ok.  The carb seems pretty tired, and leaks fuel like crazy.  I have not torn into it yet to see what the float condition is.  I'd love to hear folks experience with carb rebuilds again vs. aftermarket replacement.  I am also not seeing a lot of piston's available.  RMATV does not seem to even list an OEM option from what I can tell.  Is there a best option for top end freshening?
      Thanks for any advice or help.  I'm trying to keep this "free" quad as cheap as possible while trying to get it to run well for my kids.

      so I live in colorado and I ended up buying a KLX250. seems it struggles to go passed 65MPH on 5th gear (my klx has 6 gears).....so im in search of another bike!! kinda....
       
      now..for my klx250 its awesome on trails want to keep it...but cant barely travel on highway. But what if, I add a 15T sprocket in the front? can I then cruise at 75MPH? or should I even down the sprocket to give me more torque and maybe my 6th gear can be my 75 - 80mph? since it seemed my klx was stuck at 60mph on 5th gear giving it full throttle @ 8000rpm out of the 14,000 it has
      or am I better off with a drz400 or even a dr650 and adding a 15T?
       
      i dont plan on doing advanced trails...just service roads and chilling out in the mountains. maybe the most technical would be something like this below...... Any recommendations?

      Hey All!
      I recently traded a bike for my new 1973 Suzuki ts400. The bike has been sitting awhile, after doing the normal, carb gaskets cleaning, checking spark, then realizing the ignition system (pei) needs a timing light to check timing, i tried to start it up with a little bit of premixed gas just to see where its at... the only thing i get get the ol girl to do its backfire out of the carb (no elbow or airbox) it seems like its got hell of a compression to it but i removed the exhaust to take a peek at the rings. It seemed to be scored up, so i took some pics. Anyone know what the compression is supposed to be? Any help is greatly appreciated! 
      Thanks, Austin.
