I have a question for you 41 FCR experts

Recommended Posts

Hi All. I've got a bit of problem thats puzzling me. The engine is running well but the fuel idle fuel screw wants to be 4 1/2 turns out to idle it's best. Runs and idles OK there but it's too far out. I'm afraid I'm going to lose it. I've went from a 48 to a 50 to a 52 pilot and that doesn't make any difference. Carbs pretty new and I've blown out the passages. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

pilot 52 now

needle EMR 3rd

Main 178

Pilot air jet out

This is not likely related to your issue, but a 178 main jet seems awfully large to be using with the EMR needle.

I'll pull it off and check the slide and make sure everything else looks good. Thanks.

My air box is pretty well opened up, quite a bit more than 3x3. Also running a K&N filter. That's why the 178 main.

Yes..not related to this issue.....The mj is around the average size for a stroker motor...I run a 175mj and EMR needle with open/drilled side cover and K&N in my 485..

      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 ?
