DRZ 470 with FCR 41

64 posts in this topic

 
I just read this tip about removing it from the box part and then attracting the carb side first on another old thread. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that.


I honestly don't know how you even mount a S boot on the sudcu bell adapter without doing this. The very 1st time I tried to install the carb I had to mount the boot on the carb off the bike and let it sit awhile to stretch it out. It's a pain.

Remove the bolts for the regulator and let it hang to for more room. Put the carb in the intake 1st. Then put the airboot on. Drop the subframe. Loosen the carb from the intake to reinstall the boot back to the box and tighten. Use a big screw driver to "stretch" the airboot to get the carb back into the intake fully seated. Done!

A lot of swearing and force. I am still convinced my bike is leaking because the boot barely is on the intake bell

Could be. If it is you'll never get it jetted. You can look in and feel it's seated correctly by mounting the boot off the box.

If the boot is hardened a bit from age and fumes you can soften it up by soaking in a mixture of Wintergreen oil and rubbing alcohol . Takes a few days usually to get softer and maybe 2-3 weeks to make them outright sponge , then another week to air out and be usable again (aka don't forget about it soaking and keep an eye on it.) The mount spots will be bigger from swelling and fit over bells quite a bit too big even .

maybe we should be getting this bell over the 021-216:

EDIT: the 216A.  OD is almost 2mm less and same length.  The 213 is 3mm less OD but 14mm longer than the 216

Damn actually the 021-600 is even better looking, 52mm OD and 27mm length.  Need to get my dial caliper on the S boot ID to see what it really is.  And/or the stock mikuni.  But if y'all say the 216 fits I'm getting that bish on there.

I would switch bells if someone could confirm that there is one that fits a little better on the air box boot , do you have links?

The stock E bell adapter and airboot is also an option. I used them when I had a slant and it slipped in pretty easily.

Getting thoughts about sprocket sizes now.  Still running 15/41 thinking about going down to 37 or 38.  Either option requires chain trimming no?

OK the carb is installed.  Took a little while to complete but the results seem promising!  Toughest part was getting the throttle linkage right. It's still not perfect.

 

With the handlebars pointed straight I get a nice smooth action, same with turned full left,maybe a little slower recoil.  But when I turn right the thing stays stuck wide open.  See picture of linkage setup at carb.  Also played with adjustments at the cable by the throttle.  Possible I have the cables backwards??

Oh FYI I'm using the cable that came with the new carb

Also took some video for ya of the sticky throttle and the first startup.  She fired right up and idles great and sounds healthy.  Just free revving it sometimes gets a slight hesitation.  Need to ride it to really feel it.  Too bad it's RAINING :foul:

First start

Sticky throttle

With the adjustments of both cables at complete opposites and at their max , I'd say you have the cables in the wrong position aka current pull cable should be installed as the push cable and vice-versa.

But wait, can't the cables only be installed one way in the throttle??

If the stock DRZ cable have a molded linup thing-a-majig up at the housing ,then they would be stuck to one position . I don't have the stock housing so maybe I'm wrong on switching the cables around then , mine are just slid into slots in the housing, same as my KLX's . Still odd the the adjustments are at max and on opposite ends.

Yea these have 90° bends and the plastic slide in thingamajig so it seemed like it would only go one way...but I could be wrong.  

The reason why the adjusters are like that is because of how the point where the cable ball ends mount inside the throttle wheel (at the bars) needs to be at a certain position otherwise it hits the housing and won't allow for WOT.  If I adjust it back even it interferes at like 3/4 throttle.  

 

I bet if I got a throttle housing off of a bike that uses that carb/cable it would work better.  Honda 450?? Doesn't help that the cables still get tight at full right turn seems to be my issue at the moment.

Still didn't get a chance to ride it.  Im temporarily keeping it at my pops place so I can dial it in before I bring it back into NYC and risk getting stuck on a bridge or a bad spot.  At least by him I can keep ripping around the neighborhood dialing it in and just walk home to my truck if it goes kaput.

Plus my neighbors in Queens didn't take kindly to me going up and down my block for a half hour with that exhaust trying to troubleshoot the mikuni carb

Confirmed the cable routing was correct.  Ditched the return cable, works fine now to both bar turn stops.  Endured more torrential downpour last night, couldn't ride so I loaded the bike up this morning to take her back to the city with me.

 

Ripped it up and down my block a few times, stopped it, started it, all seemed ok.

Took her for a real ride tonight and she's a BEAST! all seems well now.  Wheelie central, great throttle response, cruises at speed on the highway without issue.  Returns to idle, doesn't stumble, turns off and right back on again.  I'd say great success!  Gunna have a buddy with a good feel for a good carb setup go for a ride on it this weekend.

If your running without a pull cable it would well advised to have Motion Pro make you one at least . Measure the one you have , both outer sheathing and then how much longer the inner cable sticks out then tell them to make it 3/8" longer. The one you have must have been made too short or the outer sheathing is too long.

If I ever have to mess with it again I'll try throwing the stock cable back on.  And if not that then maybe an E cable

Sorry if it's in here somewhere but what jetting did you settle on?

40 pilot 170 main.

I was just getting some flat spots in the mid range.  Need to play with the fuel screw when I'm closer to home.

      I am currently rebuilding my yfz450. I decided to buy the hot rods 500cc stroker kit. I was wondering what jets I need to run. It has full fmf exhaust, uni filter, riding at 800ft. Above sea level. I currently have a ncqv needle on hand along with 170 through 180 main jets, and 45 through 55 slow jets. I don't want to do the trial and error thing for two weeks, what should I start with?

      Whats up guys
      So I've done a stupid amount of searching today just to have no luck at all. I don't know if I am just blind or if I'm actually not crazy, but I have been trying to find a graphics kit to fit my specific bike for at least a week. I am just stumped. So I bought my bike with the seller telling me it was a EXC. When in all actuality it is a 06 XC (I believe). It doesn't have the same tank design as the EXC and it also states "XC" right in front of the number plate (I know I'm an idiot but I also didn't have much knowledge of the models). I have no problem what so ever finding graphics kits for the same year bike, just none that are made to my bikes body design. Does anyone know of different years or models that have the same body style? I can have a kit custom made, but that just seems like such a waste when I feel as if there has got to be pre-made kits already available. 
      I keep seeing kits like this: http://www.ktmworld.com/product/54808190300.html
      Which is a beautiful design to the graphics, but the picture that is shown is a EXC model. The XC model looks as though it has more space to cover. I've attached pictures of both the 2006 models. The XC and EXC and you can tell the XC has a lot more plastic to cover and different angles. Has anyone ever run into this problem? Does the graphics kit come ready to fit the XC and need to be cut or "modded" to fit the EXC? 
      Any help would be appreciated!!!

      I'm currently looking at moving with work to Andalucia in Spain, just across the water from Morocco and am looking at building a new DRZ-400 into a Rally bike to take with me.

      I looked at getting a KTM or Husky or other 450cc, but the maintenance would be a killer, so my intent would be to build a DRZ-400 engine under 450cc which can put out a reliable 50+HP. The only must have's on this beast would be kickstart, a capacity smaller than 450cc to stay in the lightweight class and ability to work in hot n high environments.

      I'm guessing I'd build it using a set of wide gears?

      I get that the DR Rally bike will be heavier and I'll have to change a lot of the components like brakes and suspension to make it onto the same playing field as a KTM 450 EXC, but the key for me, is having a bike which means I can actually focus on the riding during a 4/5 day event and self deploy to the event, meaning I can start racking up experience.

      As well as Morrocan based rallies, I'd be looking at competing in the Rally Albania and Greek rallies and maybe getting off-road in the Sierra Nevada's.

      Thumper Hive Mind, hit me with your opinions and suggestions on how to achieve this goal.

      This is an AMAZING deal. You'll get a rare YZ250 2 stroke, WITH A GREEN STICKER!!! It runs great. The top and bottom end have less than 50 hours on them (That's right, almost brand new crank and bearings). I recently pulled the top end apart and it has plenty of hours left on it. The 325 kit is insane. It adds tons of power throughout the entire range. It makes this bike a monster, incredibly fast. But because it's a 2 stroke you can easily control the low end power. The 325 kit also makes it more reliable, the top end can go a lot longer than stock. This thing will toast most 450's on the trail. This bike has almost too many upgrades to list.

      -ESR 325cc Kit
      -Rekluse Z-Start pro auto-clutch (never stalls!)
      -SSS suspension, fork and rear shock. The same stuff that's on the 2017's
      -EBC oversized front rotor
      -FMF exhaust with spark arrestor
      -Fastaway drop pegs
      -Scotts steering damper kit (not include damper)
      -Trail tech Kickstand
      -Brand new grips
      -Quick turn throttle
      -Brand new plastics
      -Upgraded carb, tuned and leaned out for the 325 kit
      -Body armor
      - Aluminum Skid plate
      -Carbon fiber fork upper guards
      -Engine hour meter (recently installed)
      -Fresh tires

      Easily $2000 in upgrades.

      Comes with lots of Extras too!
      -2005 YZF fork
      -Spare bottom end
      -New tire
      -And a big box of other extra parts

      Downsides: Throttle is a little sticky, probably needs a new cable.

      Going to look at a 560 SMR this weekend. I want to convert it to offload use. Who's ready for a easy conversion. I would like to do a complete front end swap and swap wheels. The 560 currently has 17" Excels, brand new Dunlops, Beringer brakes. Everything looks super clean. Let me know what you have and make an offer.
