Will S/SM Muffler Fit an E Header ??

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if the muffler is the same on all models with the header being a larger diameter on the E. The S/SM appears to have a bushing at the junction of the header and the muffler. Can I keep my SM muffler and simply add an E header ???

But i tot the the E ID is 41mm which is the same as the S/SM OD which is also 41 mm unless you force it in...?

You will successfully install the larger diameter "E" header to a midpipe of lesser diameter than intended for the "E". However, this is still a good idea if you also open up the muffler, because most of the power loss of the restrictive "S" system is in the header.

You will have to pack the joint, though. It's gonna be sloppy-loose. I have the reverse...an "E" midpipe on an "S" header.

Crap. :thumbsup:

No, that will not work. It will make me way too jealous and you will not be able to ride the bike outdoors for fear of me stealing this header when your back is turned.

Seriously, yes it will work with modifications to the "donut" joint between it and the "S" pipe if any remains.

      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 ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
