SM Jetted after 3X3 Mod?

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Apologies in advance for the simplistic nature of the question, but I haven't been able to find the answer, despite hours on this forum.

I have just got a "new to me" DRZ400SM 07, 3000 miles and sold to me as stock. I was looking into doing the 3X3 mod and re-jetting as recommended and was trying to familiarise myself with the DRZ. Removed the seat and was surprised to find a 3X3 hole in the top of the Airbox...so only almost stock!

The question is how can I (easily) tell if the re-jetting has also been done? Preferrably without striping the whole bike down.

My level of mechanical competence currently extends to holding a torque wrench and reading a workshop manual.

The only performance guidance I can give is that it generally seems to run well, though at slow speeds (in town traffic) the trottle response is not the smoothest, a little "jerky".

Any help/guidance would be more than welcome.

Welcome to TT Bob! :confused:

I'm guessing you already asked the person you bought it from about jetting?

Short of pulling the carb, which is a pretty easy job, you really can't tell for sure. Your going to want to dig into it as some point anyway. :worthy:

Thanks for the prompt response Mike.

I guess you are right about getting in there at some point, but was hoping this would not be quite so soon.

Bought from dealer who advised that it was "stock" so my recourse would be to them I guess, though I am happy not to have to cut the 3X3 anyway.

Last questions if you don't mind? Will the jet sizes be clearly marked on them? Will I have to remove them to see that detail? My previous bikes were FI so the whole carb thing is a relatively new experience...willing to learn though.

Thanks again

They will be clearly marked but, you will still have to remove them. :thumbsup:

If it is not smooth through the powerband...you need to re-jet...whether or not it has been attempted prior.

      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 ?
