sorry typing error drz 400,, :banghead:

What mods have you done? It will wheelie just fine with stock gearing, but bone stock the motor is pretty sleepy with not much snap. Even with the stock carb, if you have a good exhaust, do the 3x3 airbox mod and rejet, it will make a world of difference. It's all technique from there.

That said, if you're going to be mostly offroad and not the freeway etc much, you're going to want to gear it down anyways. Try going -1 on the front sprocket and see how you like that. That's still a decent compromise for on road and off. Though for any serious offroading you'll likely want even lower, like 14/47, but you may need a longer chain at that point.

Stock = 15/44

Compromise = 14/44

Offroad 14/47

My bike is a 2012 with 1000 miles I run 14/44 bike is pretty much stock with JD jet kit air box mod and Clarke tank with 2.5 gallons or less fuel it will pop up in second gear every time with just throttle. I can ride wheelies power shifting from 2nd out into the middle of 4th gear with this setup no problem

thanks for the reply,,no mods done as yet,,looking at new full powerbomb and the 3x3,,but as it is just now,,it doesnt even come close to come up off the throttle,,was told it would be due to the vacuum carb as there slow on the power up take??

You aren't snapping it. Roll onto it in first about 25 slightly let off throttle and when the front end dives snap the throttle back open. I guarantee you it will come up. Keep that foot covering the rear brake though.

ive tried snapping it in 1st at different speeds,,the only way it comes up is snapping it and majour tug on the bars,,or slipping the clutch alot,,it 2004 with 12000mls

Start with the jets/3x3/exhaust. If it wont wheelie in first after that there is something wrong. If you're planning on 20-30 miles at 70mph, I'd stick with close to stock gearing.

I've gotten pretty good at clutching it up in second. There is a really good how to wheelie the drz video on youtube and around on the forums.

cheers whare can i purchase the jet kit for the 3x3 mod please,,tried googling it in uk but can find anything

I'm a bad reference for you, all the places I shop are from the US of A

shit ok man cheers anyway

My bike is pretty much bone stock just a 3x3, jet kit and slip on exhaust. Gearing is also stock I can wheelie the hell out of it, just depends on technique. If you stand on the seat or rear pegs you can clutch it up in 3rd.

Thats me on stock gearing.

Get the James Dean kit, I don't know if they have any distributors in the UK. You could get it from the TT store but you might have to pay a bunch of taxes. Can you source the Dyno Jet Stage 2 kit in the UK? That would be the next choice of kits.

how to wheelstand - lean back, apply throttle. if i can wheelie a honda ct110 im sure you Dizzer will do it. If not, like people have said- sumfins wong.

I love 14/47 for my Deezer.....great off road, great for wheelies (lotsa fun off the clutch in 2nd from around 15mph-ish or so).

I've got an Aussie "real E" with an fmf can and 14/47 gears and she'll wheelie with roll on throttle in second and clutch in 3rd and i'm 110kg.

helmet, gloves, knee pads, back protector, jacket, elbow guards, quality boots, and a cellphone for when you loop it.

oh, the bike ? any gearing will do. 15/44 = easy 2nd gear up with clutch. 14/47= easy 2nd up no clutch, 3rd up with clutch. no special acrobatics required. most times adding a pipe will kill power and make more noise (harley?). there are only a few pipes and jetting combos that have proven worth while for actually adding power.

but

like i said, you don't need to do anything to the bike before it will wheelie. check your oil. :)

Ebay uk have the jd kit live at the moment. i put this on my stock 2003 s engine with the 3x3. massive diffrence.

Would recomend to anyone.

thanks for that mate..sound :ride:

many thanks for all the help on here,,whats the story with the fcr carb ,,does it fit straight on the s??
