Pictures of todays ride with Fryboy&Tim Martin

Had a blast today up at sugar pine!!! Some nice dirt a little snow and 55 degree sunny weather. Lots of fallen trees.

I did my official USFS sound test today...and PASSED!!!!

White Bros E series Promeg 10 disks and quiet core. 96.7 DB. With new packing it will be lower!!!! Tims stock pipe came in at 87db! Fryboys WR with TTR baffle was 93db. Im stoked! The quiet core didnt choke the exhaust one bit.

So heres the pics......


COLD water crossing

Tim Rippin up the snow


What the??

Dam tree!

Looks like you guys had a blast! Quit core really works! thank goodness, I wasn't looking foreware to buying another pipe.

I would like to thank Cisco for the pics as well as a sunday well spent. Im sure my back and legs are stronger from picking up the bike so much. I dont think i need to make the post saying that mud/snow/slop and MT21's = slip and sliding :) Albiet i think the bike was laying down more then it was upright i had a blast riding with some very freindly people

cool pics, looks like you guys had a good ride.

I would have been eating sh!t on my deathwings in the melted muck for sure... :)

man that looks fun!great pics thanks! :)

Looks like fun. I want to do some snow riding this year.

nic pics, looks like you guys had a good time.....-jamie

nice pictures, I've had fallen trees like that many times. Its a pain in the back especially after you've been riding for a bit. However it gives variety to the ride so can't complain :)

Zac and Tim,

It was nice riding with you guys. Tim, get some new tires and new handlebars my friend, and get ahold of us when you are ready to hit it again.

Cisco and Donna, thanks again for the hospitality. Any of you guys that get a chance to ride this area take it! Cisco is a great guide and has the ultimate staging area. Him and his wife are great hosts and good cooks too. (sounds like a commercial for a bike and breakfast) :)

A business plan perhaps :D

Great ride, great people, great food, and caught the end of a great game. Life is good.


P.S. Those pictures don't do Foresthill justice. We wanted to take more pictures but sorry guys, we just couldn't stop riding long enough to do so.

Awesome... looks like you doods had a good time and I'm sorry I missed it. My XR 400 buddies from S.F. voted to go to Stoneyford. I'll definately have to hook up with you guys soon.

By the way, the soundchecks are real (at Stonyford anyways). We got stopped while unloading the bikes by the local Ranger and took us about an hour to get through the mess. They were actually cool and gave my buds warnings, but said the new 96 decibel rule is definately in force.

The two XR 400s w/aftermarket exhaust blew at 97 and 100 decibels. My DRZ-S (stock exhaust) blew at 86 decibels. If you go to Stoneyford, be prepared for a check as they will not be giving warnings come February.

The riding was great however... one of my favorite riding areas in Northern California.

If you go to Stoneyford, be prepared for a check as they will not be giving warnings come February

And when I say why I HATE riding stoneyford becuase the rangers are friggin jerks people say NO WAY. HA they are as bad as the SO-CAL rangers. Every time I rode there I was harassed. I am the most compliant guy in the place!

Fryboy.... anytime man the BBQ's ready to burn and beers on ice :)

It looks like you all had a blast. Would any of you NorCal folks be willing to take an old, slow Newbie out and show him around?

Sure! Next time we go I'll let you know. :)

Hey CISCO, that sounds great. :) Thanks.

      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!
