Simple Pilot Jet Question?

Recommended Posts

Hi Y'all,

I've got a 2002 DRZ400S with the Stage 1 Jet Kit, K&N Filter, Big Gun Exaust, 3x3 Air Hole, and #142.5 Main & #22.5 Pilot. All I want to do is get a #25 Pilot Jet, but every on-line source I try is either out of stock or can't tell me the part number I need. :D

Can anyone recommend a good source or tell me the #25 Pilot Jet part # before the Pilot/Fuel Screw falls out of my BSR36 Carb. :)

Tanks!

Jamie

Waiting to wallow in the snow and/or mud! :D

Could it be VM28/486? I can't seem to find any VM28/286 or is it just a rare bird? :)

Until you get your jet and even afterwards, take a little piece of insulation felt(not fiberglass/Real felt) and shove in the hole, and have ran settings all the way to 3 and 3/4 it's never budged, but the little peice of felt is just added assurance. Of course if you have the extended fuel screw, that won't work.

kindacheesy , but it works

Thanks, but Been there done that... They are out of stock with no predicted restock date. :)

Jamola are you planning on riding off road? or just street ? The K&N filters are great for road use but for off road I would not use them :)

Right now I'm in the process of "fixing" the carb, but once that's complete, I'll be doing a little street, but mainly trail riding. I've gotta fight the urge to plunge into a few snow drifts if we get any. (Very Rare!). I didn't buy the K&N, but I'm probably gonna keep it even if I do end up spending a lot more time in the dirt (Hopefully on the bike!) :)

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
