SM jet kit install Ride Review and ??

Recommended Posts

Installed a DJ SM jet kit on my 06 DRZ SM.

285ft above sea level

150 main

25 pilot 2.5 turns out

SM needle clip 2nd notch stock spacers

Stock exhaust

Stock filter

3x3 mod.

Extended fuel screw

Install went very well. Not my first time turning a wrench though.

The bike seems to have quite a bit more pazzaz in the mid range. Slight bog off idle and it seems to be a bit flat at high rpm or WOT. The butt dyno can tell a difference though. Im happy overall for the money and would recommend it to anyone without the $$$$ to do the FCR. Just have a little tinkering w/ fuel screw to get just right.

Questions? Ever so slight bog off idle ???

High RPM flat feeling ????

are these indications of lean/rich ??? just looking for which way to go with the fuel screw...

I would like to know also. I'm at 1400ft with the exact same setup?! I don't have the off idle bog, but it does seem flat on top a little.

If you have the extended fuel screw it can be rich, you may want to try adjusting your screw, after a complete warmup, by slowly turning in until it hestiates or stumbles, then back out until it is smooth, if it is the extended screw my guess is it will be around 1 1/2 turns, try that to see if it fixes the bog

ive got pretty much the same now....put it together today in bout 45 mins...

opened end cap on OEM exhaust


150 main


DJ Needle - 2nd clip position with OEM washers & spacer

25 pilot

2.5 turns on extended fuel screw


3x3 on airbox

im at 2100ft elev and the bike runs perfect throughout the rpm range. pulls how the bike SHOULD have pulled from the factory. im awaiting my full muzzy, just couldnt wait much longer. although im not sure if i will need to put the 155 main in after the exhaust gets changed. we'll see.....unless the masters have any insight.

maybe your top end flat spot might be from the restrictor in the exhaust....? not sure though.

      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?

      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!

      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 ?
