filed my shifter down any thing else?

I read the stuff earlier about filing down the sharp corner an the shifter lever and it makes perfect sense if you haven't done it , then do it. Its free and you can tell it will help :cry::lol: Is there any other little free things like that to do as preventative? :cry: And does any body Know where I can find about 100 more HP for my drz? :cry: :cry: :cry:

Sure - eBay. Just buy a used ZX-10R and install the engine in your frame. Figure a few minutes to weld in the engine mounting plate and then you'll be all set to wheelie away.

You know.. I bet between the falicon stroker kit, nitromethane, nitrous oxide, and a supercharger... you could probably hit that 100hp mark for a brief second before sending the rod straight through you bumm.

Ballance your wheels,

Remove or lubricate throttle return cable

Lube the steering and swing bearings out back

remove the front sprocket gaurd but use the steel gaurd thats there

disconnect the kickstand and clutch lever switches

aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh that's much better

More horsepower :cry: I can't handle what it has stock.

If you want more power just make it loud. That will impress everyone around you.

seriously though if you need more power try changing the sprokets to get the gearing you like. Works great untill you start looking for 5th all the time :cry:

Actually I like the gearing it is highway freindly and 1st and 2nd are good for trails with my yosh inspired torque. The 100 hp is one of those funny litle dreams that if I find it I will post how to. The nos issue will wait until I have a big bore kit odered and the warranty is up. But till then it is just rite for my skill level. :cry: :cry:

I've run NOS on one motorcycle and a few cars. Its fun but the noveltly wears off quickly. And I don't see the point on a dirt bike. As far as I can tell it only makes sense on a drag car.

free mods..... mmmmmmmm

I took the front reflectors off :cry:

took the clutch switch off

and did away with that stupid kickstand switch the first time I went down a steep hill and the engine cut off and I had nuthin to get back up the other side.

the DJ kit is a good mod but not free. But it will make you go WOW!!! for around $60

oh yeaaa, and I took the seat strap off, that thing felt like I was sitting on a ink pen. and removed those passenger pegs and chain guard. I didnt but this bike to ride 2 up, thats for the street.

Two words...Nitrous Oxide.

The DRZ engine should produce the extra 100 HP before it begins to look like a 4th of July display. Most engines will produce a lot of power if you aren't worried about their life span. You might want to keep your weight way out over the bars when the nitrous kicks in. It will have a tendency to raise the front end. :cry:

I was just joking about NOS. You can make a lot of power, but it is not easy to control. The power comes on all at once and it is only useful on drag racers and hill climbers. Your engine would put out almost twice the torque only when you reach full throttle, and it is either ON or OFF.

But in response to the original question, this IS the way to do it, although I don't recommend it.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
