09 DRZ400S - Warp9 Supermoto with a different setup

Hi Eddie & All Intake/Jet enthusiasts -

i've got an 09 'S' with a Warp9 conversion, 14/44 gearing (will be returning to 15/44). other than some cosmetic things, the bike is stock - including stock jets (i'm sorry, i don't know what stock jet settings are on the '09)

I'm setting it up with an FMF Powerbomb header, Two Brothers M-7 Pipe, and intending to do the 3x3 mod with a stock carb and stock air filter for now...

I'm at Sea Level in Hawaii (oahu), 80 degrees avg every day, 90/10 street-hooligan/dirt.

I'm going for either the FMF jetting kit or the JD kit; i know there are too many options (DynoJet, Moose..), i'm assuming the JD comes with the largest variety of jetting options?

can someone chime in on jet/needle settings? I'm carb challenged (but can do just about anything else..)

Thanks in advance!

oh, btw the dynojet 1/2 kit is locally available (a big deal because shipping is $$ and usually slow)... the kit has:

1 Main Jet DJ132

1 Main Jet DJ136

1 Main Jet DJ140

1 Main Jet DJ146

1 Main Jet DJ150

1 Main Jet DJ155

1 Main Jet DJ160

1 Fuel Needle DNO369

1 E-clip DE0001

1 Adjusting Washer DW0001

1 Slide Spring DSP026

1 Needle Spring DSP77

1 Plug Drill DD 5/32

1 Screw DS0001

and how realistic does DJ's claim sound?

"Stage 2"

For mildly tuned machines with then top of the airbox

opened up 3in X 3in, with stock or K&Nfilter. Should

also be used with a good aftermarket exhaust system.


Get the James Dean kit.

FYI, all those other 'brands' are just repackaged dynojet ones.

yup... the JD kit. I had it in my CV carb, and it ran great. JD has some non-factory needles, that solve the CV carb's issues.

Thanks Will - that's the advice i keep seeing around the boards, but very little to backup why the JD is any better... however... (see below)

[...] JD has some non-factory needles, that solve the CV carb's issues.

...this is some info i did not know about the JD and how it differs from other kits.

i dont really care who packages what kit under what name, the end result is numerical. a 150 jet is always a 150. but if the needle included is different, then we have a winner...

i'm still trying to figure my jetting with a two bros + Powerbomb FMF header + 3x3... i'll report findings soon..

thanks all!

So far, it looks like the only things i'm finding are pointing me towards a 155 main jet at sea level, clip on 2n'd grove/last grove of the needle. with a constant 70-80 degrees, i'm guessing i should be fine with this jet?

with what kit?

with what kit?

glad you found me Eddie!

After all the looking, i think that's the setting for the Dj kit - but again, the reason i was looking at the Dj is local availability... if you could guide me to the Two Bros.+FMF Powerbomb Header + 3x3 @ Sea Level/~80deg settings with a JD, i won't hesitate to order if that's the only way to go

Thanks all!

either kit will work fine.

jd kit-

160 main jet

jd blue needle

clip 4

25 pilot jet with the stock fuel screw or

22.5 pilot jet with the extended screw

2.75 turns

You're the man Eddie! Thanks - I'll post updates after all the parts arrive and It's up and running

      Hi Guys,
      So I recently bought a 1997 XR400. I've done some research into getting more power through some basic mods and rejetting the carbs. Though all of the ones I've found have been for post 98 XR400s so the stock carb set up is a lot different. Usually people are opening up the airbox, exhaust ect. ect. and Jetting their carbs up to 160/162 for mains around 60 ish (I think) for the pilot. However for the 97 model this is close to stock for the jets.
      So essentially what Im asking (Just to cut to the chase ) Has anyone got a 96/97 (maybe 98, not sure) XR400 and has done these similar mods, and what sort of jetting have to done as a result.
      Thanks in advanced, also its my first post so apologies if I havent done everything correctly.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I have not found any options available for the new 2018 bikes. I live and work for a new Beta Dealer (Auburn Extreme Powersports) in California, and we are having a difficult time mapping the RR-S bikes for full FMF exhausts. We have tried contacting Beta Support several times for this issue to no avail, and we typically are given the runaround when transferring to techs and secretaries. From what we can gather, the FMF flash is designed for the RR bikes, but not the street-legal counterparts. Every time we try to install the FMF map onto an RR-S errors occur, and the programmer screen goes virtually blank. We have heard through the grapevine that some are using the RR maps on the RR-S with success, but we have yet to try it, even on our own bikes for fear that it will permanently erase or damage the CDI. Any and all help or suggestions regarding this topic would surely be appreciated! Thanks, Ben.
