BSR36 question

Recommended Posts

    I'm thinking i would like my DRZ to be more responsive when I give her the gas,  I'm happy with the power just want more pop when I first twist the throttle.   I know that the people with CVK 40's enlarge a hole to let the vacuum pull up the piston faster, is there a similar modification i could do to the BSR 36 to speed things up a bit?  Maybe improve the ability to lift the front wheel?

Have you got the lighter spring from a dj jet kit

This allows the slide to lift faster

With this fitted I understand it is on the limit as any faster lift rate would result in bogging issues due to lack of an AP squit like the FCR

 

Get the FCR if you want to make real difference

No lighter spring I got the JD kit.

Enlarging the vacuum hole in the slide will make the slide react to pressure changes fast, making it feel more connected to your throttle. It won't feel as smooth, but will feel more responsive.

  That's what I figure, just wondering if anybody has tried it and has recommendations regarding optimal sizing of the holes,    And I'm not feeling like buying an $800.00 carb right now.

I had to he DynoJet way back when and while it did improve response somewhat, it didn't hold a candle to the Edelbrock Quick Silver carburetor that replaced it

Picked up my CVK40 for $100 plus the Schnitz needle and a new main jet for slightly more than $30. Can probably sell the stock carb on eBay and get some of that money back. Very cost effective way to get the responsiveness you're talking about.

  I am considering that option.  But just drilling a hole seems easier

I'd go easy on enlarging the slide holes.  That works in some applications but is not a tried and true popular mod for the DRZ400. For the motor to accelerate it has to drag the flywheel and the rest of the motorcycle with it.  If the motor can't do that, you get a bog.  The BSR36 is limited by the lack of an accelerator pump.  The whole purpose of the vacuum controlled slide is to only open the carb s fast as the motor can respond. Just snapping the throttle open faster may not be the answer.

  I'm sure you can go big and foul everything up,  but i'm thinking a small enlargement might be a good thing.

      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 ?
