"04" DRZ 400e

Recommended Posts

Just retired my XR 400 W/Mikuni carb with throttle response that would snap your neck (loved it). I wanted electric start so i bought a new "04" DRZ 400e. Nice bike but i did notice the bog off idle and the slow return back to idle. This is get you hurt in the woods and single tracks. What do you suggest?

Thanks,

Jake

The DRZ400E has lean jetting at low throttle positions. Try turning the fuel screw outwards on the bottom of the carburetor, in front of the drain bolt.

The next step would be a richer needle clip position or consider a jetting kit for your bike from the banner ad above. The kit will richen the jetting for more performance than the stock parts can give, easier to lift the front end and more torque.
