Few questions on the drz carb options

I've been offered a flat side carb for my drz sm 400 and from what I've read they seem to be quite a common mod.

I was just wondering is it really worth buying one? Will Jetting my standard carb not give similar power gains for a lot less ? I'm looking to make a lot more power and hopefully 3rd gear wheelies but I don't want to spend a lot if I don't have to , cheers

What's the carb off from and how much are they asking? Used carbs can be a gamble and only certain versions can adapt easily.

From what I've been told it's. Keihin if that's how you spell it , it's from an e model

Oh and asking 200 , I've heard the b me running with the carb so I no it's good in that sense

200 is not a bad deal, TT sells the kit for around 500 if I think. Your gonna need to source the carb boots from an e model as well, and a vacuum nipple if your using the stock petcock

If that is 200 UK pounds, it is $320 USD :thumbsdn:

Yes 200 pound, what are the gains to be had over jetting my standard carb?

If you want to do 3rd gear wheelies then you'll need an fcr carb.

The flastside carb off the E isnt this the old school one? I think its decent obvs better than the mikuni one. But thats only if you can jet it correctly and do you run a open pipe? With 3x3 mod if not i think its pointless £200 for a used e carb is a crap deal. Id pay £120 id rather put the money towards the new mx fcr. From tt what comes jetted to suit but your money bud! Do what you think is right good luck

Hmm kinda mixed reviews, I might just order the James Dean jetting kit for my carb and do the 3x3 mod, also has anyone used the gpr carbon exhausts? I have one and it's bloody loud but wasn't sure if it was any good

the jet kit is good. Make sure you order the jd kit 005. And noo the best exhaust is the mrd/ssw gives best hp and noise ;) , the. Its the yoshi exhausts.. But these give very little hp advantage. The gpr exhaust never saw a drz with them but most gpr pipes are crap ahah :) where abouts in uk are you?

Yea the jd005 is what I've been told to order, I'm from Cambridge east Anglia, heard a Lor about the mrd exhaust will look into that

** You'll need technique.

A stock DRZ will power wheelie in 3rd...
