without the 3x3 no reason you need the mrd/ssw,get a slip on.. if the 3x3 is all your doing you'll need to rejet and mrd/ssw is then a good choice, however it is quite loud, so be sure of what your area laws are and what you can get away with, you will lose the stealth. another good pipe would be rs2(not qite as loud, fmf with powerbomb. From what i know i'm sure others will chime in.

Un corked rs-2 is just as loud just has different tone. Just my .02

My SSW/MRD will be here today and will be replacing my RS2 so I'll give you my honest opinion on sound and power right after the swap. Im going to hammer it, let it cool and swap exhausts, and then go hammer it again with and without the quiet insert.

MRD/SSW is the way to go. But it would be illogical to get a 400$+ high performance exhaust and not do a 3x3 along with proper rejet. You'll just end up with a loud, lean running bike with less HP than stock. and as eddie said, slip ons are a waste.... if you want the effect of a lip on just drill out bigger hole in your stock muffler.

I hate to see bad advice given without any kind of data to support thier opinion.

The MRD\SSW or Yosh Ti are going to be the 2 best performing pipes on your bike...regardless of your other mods. Anything else is going to be a cost vs performance compromise. Anybody who tells you otherwise just is not telling the truth.

If you dont want performance...then don't change the pipe. Otherwsie...why are you spending money at all?

MRD/SSW is the best peforming exhaust, and the best looking in my opinion.

I know MRD only does Stainless, but If I had a Titanium header with my MRD Muffler i would fall in love lol

      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?

      Hi,
      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!
      Thanks!

      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 ?
