DRZ400E 2001 - Rejet and Pipe = Idle Prob

Recommended Posts

I am the original owner of a 2001 DRZ400E (Non-Cali) with less than 100 miles on the bike and just did the below mods. The jet kit came from Factory Pro.

- Jardine Full Exhaust and Pipe

- Pilot Jet #48

- Jet Needle - 1070x-74mm3-ti @ #4 Pos

- Main Jet #145

- Main Air Jet #180

- Full Level 10mm+/-1mm

- Fuel Screw 3.5 turns out

- Removed the Coasting Enricher

- Snorkel is removed

- Ride at sea level (Southeast Texas)

The problem I am having is the bike will not maintain an idle even with the idle screw turned all the way up. I did put the Coasting Enricher back on the bike and it will now maintain an idle (idle adjustment about middle). It was my understanding by rejetting the carb I would be able to remove the Coasting Enricher. Did I do something wrong with my jetting combo? Any input?

you cant remove the coast enrichener unless you make the need changes to the pilot air circuit.

needs a 100 pilot air jet.

I really appreciate the info. This is my first time with an off-road machine, and my first "Hare Scramble" event is next weekend. I am trying to get everything in order. This really helps.

      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 ?
