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…

      A complete set of SM wheels from a DRZ400SM.  These are ready to be bolted on, complete with front and rear brake rotors, and rear 41 tooth sprocket.  The rear tire is an almost new Michelin Pilot Power 2CT with only about 500miles.  The front tire is a Bridgestone Battlax BT015F with plenty of miles left in it.  Price is $1050 plus shipping.

      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 Husqvarna TX300 and the stock mikuni is giving me the worst gas mileage I have ever experienced on any 2 stroke. There is a little bit of spooge but not enough to seem extremely rich. Also, when I began running out of gas I would shut the gas off and the remaining gas in the bowl seemed to go forever. Perhaps the float if too high?
