FMF power up kit

Ordered my FMF power up kit from Rush racing Friday 12th, received it this morning Saturday 13th. now thats service!

Anyway i have a 2005 DR-Z 400 SM and was interested to see what the difference was between the Dynojet kit for the s model which i had already fitted, and the FMF kit which is specific to the SM model.

Basically the only difference is the needle which broader for a longer portion of its length, which allows a richer main jet (155) for top end power when used with a modded air box, but keeps the midrange correct.

Ive fitted FMF kit as per the supplied insructions ( stage 2), and taken it for a run.It seems to rev out a lot better and seems crisper. My fun was cut short by torrential rain here in England, but i think it now needs taller gearing.

I will try it for a few weeks and make a decision then but early signs are good :D :D

Is there a web site with the info on the SM only FMF kit?

do you have a part number and price that you paid for the kit, I just ordered a road legal REMUS titanium Can for my 05 SM and may want to compliment it by re-jetting

FMF jet up kit (011796) £52.45 delivered to your door.

Rush racinig UK , Tel.01404 549696 :D

Many thanks!

let us know how this mod feels AFTER youve used it a bit more!!

is there realy that much difference in power

seems like a load of fuss over about 3bhp to me!?!?!?! :D

Which equates to almost a 10% increase in power :D

Having recently fitted the FMF SM kit and the 3x3 mod in combination with a new pipe, I can say that it makes a 'very' noticable improvement.

Got a chance to get out for an hour and give it a run in the dry, and again things feel better than the dynojet "s" kit. Seems to rev out better and when

cruising at around 75-85mph it"s a lot more relaxed and smoother,less throttle needed.The FMF kit instructions recommend an after market exhaust and the 3x3 mod for stage 2, but I"m trying to stick with the stock for now.

So at the moment it"s set up as this.






3x3 MOD

Now for the bad news,when i got home i thought I"d make an adjustment to the needle clip position remove a slight hesitation when at high revs but small

steady throttle openings (third from bottom/middle). Slipped when replacing

the needle in the slide and damaged the slide :D looks like a trip down to my local Suzuki dealer,what a Muppet.So when i get my new throttle slide I"ll try again. :D:D

3hp is alot on a 35hp motorcycle.

      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
