Surprised! My TRC mounted up to stock mounts on my "S"

Got my Yosh Ti TRC yesterday...Was quite surprised that when I replaced my RS-3 with my Ti TRC it bolted right up to the stock positions!

Clears the radiator...

Oh...It came with the "potato" installed (Which I removed immediately)...Happy to see my TEC kit fits (Even though I don't use it here in Africa)...

Looks good! Nice job on the install.

man thats awesome.... mine wasnt quite as easy but i made it work with the help of the advise on the tt forum. thanks guys!

Wow, your lucky it mounted to stock mounts.

Looks really good!

Just cant wait to get mine through the post in the next few weeks! :thumbsup:

I have to wonder, is the mid pipe fully inserted into the header and tail pipe? If so, you have the only system in the world that mounts to a S/SM in the stock location.

Unless it's a PhotoChop!

How much clearance do you have between the left rad and the header?

Mine was so close I had to move the radiator up.

Oh yeah...It's close as the picture shows...But no closer than my RS-3 was...It doesn't touch the rad.

He he... What in the world would I have to benefit from that :thumbsup: Nope I'm surprised as anyone (Hench my post). I tried to get it installed first using the "alternative" mounting points...It didn't like those...However it went with little struggle once I tried the regular mounting points. As far as the mid pipe being inserted the whole way...It's inserted as far as I could wiggle it (And tap it slightly together more at the end with a rubber mallet)...I've taken the bike out twice now riding...

I did forget to mention one other thing...I did reverse the buddy peg eliminator bracket to move the pipe outward a small amount to clear the shock spring. After doing that I didn't need to shim the rear frame to clear the shock spring as some have done...

My pipe was a return I got new for $545 because someone had returned it cause it had a scratch (I looked all over it when I got it and found nothing you could even call a scratch (Had to be an SM guy...THANKS)...

Unless it's a PhotoChop!

it mounted,but its not right.

it needs to be done like ive posted.

you also have the flange at the head on backward.the springs should not be stretched the far.

I'll swap it next time I have the pipe off...Probably will have to buy new springs...Gonna leave it for now...

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
       
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
