Drz 469 bogging

Recommended Posts

Hey guys wondering If anyone had any input on this problem I'm having. I have a 2000 drz 400 e with the fcr 39,it's got the big bore kit, stroker kit,3x3. It is jetted at 160 main and 45 pilot and I'm at sea level. When I rip on it pretty much 0-1/4 throttle it bogs and is real jumpy, especially after I up shift. But after 1/4 throttle it runs great. Carb was recently cleaned, not sure what the next step should be matey changing pilot?

try adjusting your ACcelerator pump screw. and/adjusting the low speed fuel screw. you should start from 1.5 turn out if you go past 2.5 turns out you may need a bigger pilot. it probably needs proper adjustment ther are guides on the interwebs that help trouble shoot thats how i figured out how to dial in my fcr39mx. but im at stock displacement. i run 45/160 on stock displacement and ssw pipe. so it might be jetting. but you will find out if it is jetting when you run through your adjustment ranges. and your pilot circut is good from idle to 1/4 throttle.

also i am using the JD kit and air jet installed which for im at sea level and warmer climate it runs better than with genuine kehin components. hope this helps. mahalo.

What needle and clip position?  Is your pilot air jet in?  How many turns out is your idle fuel mixture screw?  Elevation?  What cams are you using?  Is this the slant body fcr?  What exhaust?

 

I think that'd be the place to start.  Strange how you're running a 160 main and it's working well up top.  My 470 has 160 main and 45 pilot and i need to go down to a 155 or 150 main because my issue is bogging and stalling up top and richness issues. 

 

My idle circuit works well with emr needle clip 3, 45 pilot with fuel screw 2 turns out and pilot air jet in.  I'm at 700ft.  I have hotcams stage 2 and an open mrd, maybe this would help you.  Every bike and area is different.

      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 ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
