I'm only gettin 35mpg on the highway, way less on the singletrack, 80 km and on reserve with stock tank. I think the AP is to blame, I'm jetted way down from the JD kit recommedation, decorked and no snorkel.

If you are thinking about the fcr, My biggest complaint is that it is more sensitive to jetting. I live in Minnesota, so I ride when it's 30 degrees and when it is 100 degrees. The stock carb laughs at poor jetting, heat, cold, elevation, and crappy gas.

15 klm per litre commute.

17-18klm per litre spirited riding.

20 klm per litre freeway, constant throttle 100-110 klm/h.

Convert to US MPG

37-38 mpg commute

42-43 mpg spirited riding

50mpg freeway riding at 60-65 mph.

:thumbsup:

They are if you read............. when you resurrect 5 Year old dead threads....................

what mpg or mileage range out of full stock gas tank are you guys getting with FCR39?

 

Much better since I put the TPS on.

 

Get a carb with a TPS or prepare to spend $200 to add one later.

^Just as a different view on this claim, I noticed absolutely NO difference in MPG before and after TPS on my 2003 E... On my bike with snorkel removed, jetted accordingly and TPS removed; I get 40 MPG riding quite aggressively on a mixture of highway/back roads/city.

Have you checked the calibration?

It was calibrated directly from Suzuki and untouched until I removed it; just to clarify it was the OEM flat slide not the MX FCR.

 

Wanna sell it? ;)

I would certainly entertain the idea... I do feel obligated to mention that, as far as I have read, the DRZ only utilizes the TPS for idle adjustment and as such is quite unnecessary.

I have read that too, but I know far too much about four stroke engines to ever believe it. :)

      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 ?
