advice required

Gday Peoples

Just done rebuild on DRZ400, things seem to working well at this stage, but have a couple of things i am not sure of.

1. when it is idling and i give it a quick crack of the throttle i get a slight lag and a puff of darkish smoke! I have installed a Yoshi pipe K&N air filter. I jetted according to Yoshi recommendation. Any thoughts??

2. I notice the header pipe glowing quite a bit last night when it had been idling for about 3-4 minute. Is this normal?

Cheers

You might want to mention that you have fitted the 464 crank and piston kit. :smirk:

1...So..how does it run when you ride it..??

2...Red pipe is normal..

What carb and settings are installed.?....Altitude?

List all mods...It's a stroker motor?

It seems to run ok during the small amount of K's done on the streets, i just finished rebuilding the motor. Rebuilt using a 465 strocker kit bought from the US, installed Yoshi pipe and K&N air filter before rebuild, i replaced main jet with a 168 and raised by 1 notch as instructed by Yoshi.

Hope this gives you a good picture of what i am dealing with.

So is that the stock carb you are using?....

Which Yoshi pipe?..What Cams?..Valves?...What model DRZ?

Have you done 3x3 mod?..What altitude is the bike mostly ridden at???

Does it accelerate ok from small throttle openings thru to wide open throttle?

Need more info on your set up to give better advice....

Yoshi pipe is RS-3 Oval

Standard Cams

Standard Valves

2006E Model

No 3x3 mod

0- 300 mtr above

Have not given bike a lot of welly yet, but during initial test ride when going through the gears and accelerating on resonse seemed crisp. When i got back from ride i had the bike idling on the stand and i was giving some quick twists, ok when only small opening, when i gave it a bit more of a handfull it gave a small back fire and puff of darkish smoke.??

Remove snorkel in top of air box to achieve equivalent to 3x3 mod..

Do the Eddie mod..http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=890079&highlight=eddie+mod

Try a 155 mj , stock dxp needle on clip 5 or emn needle clip 3...

See how it runs when you take it for a decent ride....if it still has stumble/hesitation under load you may need to go 1 clip leaner...

When jetted correctly you will have some hesitation when free revving..

The stock carb , E cams and valves will limit your top end hp....
