dynojet! jetting

Hi, im about to buy a dynojet kit for my bike just wanted to check whether it will come with all the jets i need or will i need to purchase extra if so what would you recommend. My S has the 3x3 mod, k&n filter, race exhuast and hotcams intake and exhaust. I ride at sea level but live in the U.K if this makes a difference, thanks

Normally, the practice is to not use any of the jets in the DJ kit, just the needle.

But......you stated you have the hot cams I&E. What stage?

What jets are you running now? Your probably already way carb limited, get a FCR.

Dont know what the jets are had it set up a long time ago in a shop. Would like to but cant afford an FCR really. I think the hotcams are stage 1


Just a word of note for you - If you're running the standard jets you'll probably have to go bigger. I don't have cams, but I'm running a dynojet kit (sort of).

I've been trying to get bigger main jets for my dynojetted DRZ for ages now. So far no luck. It seems really hard to get jets for the mukini carb in the UK. Certainly I ordered jets from Dirtbike store at the start of Dec. and I'm still waiting for delivery. It's nothing against the guys at Dirtbike store - they are friendly and helpfull, it just seems getting the jets is a pig. None of my local bike shops can get them.

Also, the Dynojet kit is £87 ukp.

My bike still isn't running right due to my need for bigger jets. In the end, I ended up buying an FCR carb and the bits to make it run. That is happening this weekend! :-)

Basically, it's not that much more expensive to buy an ebay FCR and the air boots etc. Basically the FCR and accesories cost £50ukp more than the dynojet kits and the jets to get it working properly.

Just something you might want to consider... :-)

Either way, the DRZ is a hoot!


The other reason i wasn't to keen on the FCR is the effect it,ll have on my mpg. If you buy the dynojet kit from the TT shop it only equals about £50. Can anyone help me with what jetting i will need as i can order the jets at the same time, thanks

ps let us know how you get on with the FCR

This is what I did with my 04 drz. Keep in mind I have stock cams and no mods to the motor. Dynojet kit. Use the needle. e-clip and spring from the kit. Install 140 main jet and 25 pilot jet. Adjust mixture screw to 2.5-3.0 turns out. Did this last weekend and took it out on almost 300 mile mix of highway, country roads, logging roads and some single track this weekend and it runs great. I live at sea level and we may have gone as high as 2,000 feet yesterday. Remember, I have stock engine and I'm runing a 14tooth counter gear and stock rear sprocket.




Good luck I hope this helps but with the cams you may need to use different jets and make sure you do the 3x3. If gas mileage is a factor I got approx 45 mpg with the mix of riding.

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      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!
