3x3 Mod Photos?

Recommended Posts

I'm a TT newbie and I'm sure this thread has been beaten to death, but...

I'm looking for photos and instructions for the 3x3 airbox mod. I've searched the DRZ forum and found a few dead links to photos... but have yet to find anything helpful.

Anybody have photos and/or instructions, or know where I might find them?

Thanks in advance,

hey, its pretty easy,

1. take off seat

2. pull out snorkel in air box

3. enlarge existing hole to 3in by 3in

4. reassemble

.....I'm trying to find the link to share

tip - don't cut too deep as you may cut the rear fender

I was hesitant to do it without photos as well. Ultimately, the idea is to get 9 square inch hole in the top of the airbox. Where you take the plastic out does not matter very much. I ended up cutting a 4 X 2.25 hole near the back end of the airbox, so that the CDI didn't interfere with the airflow.

You're right though, pretty much all the pictures are dead links.

This is a really good pictorial, although the site seems to have dissapeared in the past few days-

Neil thanks for the pic, I thought it would look something like that but always helpful to see it.

MutualBill, with the larger size's did you have to jet even more? Vice the normal 3X3 jetting that is throughout the forum!

Here are a few pictures of mine if your still looking.

I took some detailed pictures of rejeting the carb, if you need it I can post those also.

I just did mine and have three tips:

1. When you take the top of the carb off, there is a very small o-ring (maybe 3/16") called the "dead spot o-ring" (I think) just under the lid. I never knew it was there and almost lost it. Work on a clean surface when taking the carb apart and take careful notice of the sequencing of the parts.

2. Loosen the subframe bolts. This makes getting the carb on and off much easier.

3. Getting the screws out of the carb bowl can be a real PAIN. To hell with a screwdriver. Use a pair of vise grips to remove them, and have some stainless allen-head screws there to replace them with.

I've the carb off the bike (what a PITA) and I'm about ready to start pulling it apart. Could you clarify which screws you're referring to? You mean the two black screws holding the cover for the float chamber on?

The four screws that hold the bottom bowl on the carb. You need to remove these to get to the jets. Don't even attempt to take these off with a phillips screwdriver. They are overtorqued from the manufacturer. Clamp down very hard with a pair of vise grips and twist.

      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 ?
