Kouba guys, PLEASE READ NOW!!!!!!!!

This is a repeat of my previous message. Time is getting close on finalizing this order. A total of 48 have been requested, but so far only 17 have been paid for. I CANNOT order on blind faith, I just can’t. I have learned this nasty lesson over and over again. Hey, people change their minds, that’s all! I am posting on the WR426 websight the confirmed and PAID for orders. If your name is not on this list, we better talk and FAST. I will be posting the final definite orders prior to my call to Kouba. Exceptions have been made to a very few guys, overseas (Guy & Robert Preston – My personal tour guides when I visit their countries!).

If you have ANY doubt that something went wrong, You MUST e-mail me before noon on Friday, December 14, U.S. Eastern Time Zone or call me and leave a message, 603-942-7105. If you get any of my kids to “Let me Know”, your message will be a waste of your time!

If any of you mailed your payment, and you are not on the list, be patient. I will post on Thursday night/Friday morning the latest received payments (I am on midshift).

If anyone wants to go Pay Pal, I CANNOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS, only business accounts do. I am just a lowlife shmuck, and am using PP for persona entertainment purposes.

I talked to Norman Kouba today.

Here is the poop:

He WILL NOT ship ONE T-Handle to anyone, being the minimum order is $25.00. He will pay for shipping, but the price IS $16.00. For those of you that want two or more, this is a viable option.

We can get these for a ONE TIME OFFER ONLY for $11.00 apiece BULK order to one address only, that voluntarily is me. $13.00 WILL cover all my shipping charges. It it does not, I WILL EAT THE DIFFERENCE! It is OK, really!

For WR/YZ models, and CRF Honda (hurry up CRF250, I want one!!), nothing special on the install.

DRZ Suzuki models are special. PLEASE see his web page on installation:


I recommend EVERYONE take a final glance at the web page (does it seem like you are signing away your life for some reason?) to rest assure yourself that you want to take this plunge!

For any "new readers", this is an adjust on the fly (well...with the bike stopped) carb fuel screw adjuster. The advantage is it is installed in the carb and WILL NOT fall out. For those of you (like me) that blow cash on graphics, pipes, airboxes, suspension mods, beer (hey, beer is in a WHOLE DIFFERENT CATEGORY!) this is less than a drop in the bucket. EVERYONE that has one swears by them.

The shipping is the same for everybody, but I must ask for U.S. equivelent dollars. For example, I think Austraila is running 66% of US currency .

I have a Pay Pal account under: kwho163@hotmail.com. I do prefer a bank check, money order, traveler check, personal check IF SIGNED IN BLOOD , etc.

If you question my honesty, I welcome anyone to Firebomb or Molotov Cocktail my house if I screw you over. Give me a heads up so I can get my bike and gear out the house !!

Please reply via the Personal Messsage Icon or sendme an e-mail, kwho163@hotmail.com. I will need to know how many desired, complete mailing address, how you want to pay would be nice, anything else pertinent (secret jet specs for a 99WR, if your Sister is availbale for a date (with my Wife’s permission – doubtfully - ) etc ).

I want to place this order NLT (Navy slang for No Later Than) Friday, December 14, 4 pm United States - Eastern Time.

Glad to help out ANY ThumperTalk Member!!



'99 WZ/YR (you choose!) with ALL YZ mods, de-octopused, DSP Doug Henry airbox w/ velocity stack, FMF PowerBomb header, Stroker SX-1 silencer, SS front brake line, OEM YZ tank, IMS YZ seat, "JK" Carb APJ mod, Mobil 1 15W-50.

      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!
