    Drz400e but believe california model

    I would not try to cool the engine with the fuel mixture. Its best to have the fuel tune as spot on as you can and address the cooling issue on its own. High altitudes effect the radiator significantly. Most of us have to use a cooling fan(s) for the real tight high altitude stuff. But other options like higher pressure radiator caps, bigger radiators, reducing Ethylene Glycol ratio and higher output water pumps are all better alternatives than trying to cool with richer mixtures. 2 Strokes are far more sensitive to fuel mix than a 4 stroke!

    Hey buddy, per our phone conversation, you ordered correctly. The "E" Cali model is a hybrid of the E chassis but the S motor. As long as you order like you thought, you are good to go! Just follow the JDS005 kit instructions when it arrives and you should be a lot better off! =)

    Raptor Petcock on a DRZ fit? Yes, No and Yes & No

    Couple things real quick. Teflon tape is a lubricant, not a sealant. Pipe threads are tapered for an interference fit. The Teflon tape is designed to eliminate galling, so that you can tighten enough to cause the seal. There was a Yamaha petcock a few guys have ordered in the past that has a straight down exit, but im not sure on the part number. If you use the Raptor, a simple 90 degree fuel filter should eliminate any kinking issue, if you dont want to go the "Gucci" route Erik did! =) Sweet write up BTW!

    ThumperTalk FCR-MX kits!

    Unfortunately the manufacturer raised the cost of the carburetor by over $200 on us! They "claim" it was a long overdue increase based on material cost and inflation. =(

    ThumperTalk FCR-MX kits!

    We were able to fulfill all our back orders for carb conversions and have a few left over. These are actually, currently, "back ordered, no ETA" from the US importer; so once this small current stock of ours is gone, they will return to, "back order" status here with us (and the rest of the USA). Get them while supplies last: https://www.thumpertalk.com/shop/DRZ400S-SM-FCR-MX-39mm-Conversion-Kit-p2006766611.html

    Mineral spirits and a stiff Vynal brush, then rinse with brake cleaner, FTW! Keep in mind that hot soapy water will QUICKLY ruin bearings and anything else ferrous. I found this out the very expensive hard way...

    Bike Repossession

    Keep in mind signature loans carry much higher interest than collateral loans. But none the less I agree its the best route if you are bent on financing vs paying cash.

    Tail/brake light

    Since its already out, might as well take a look and see if its an easy fix. The white license plate lights are a separate "board" so its possible a lead wire broke/came un-soldered. The alternative is that you are a perfect candidate for the integrated board upgrade?
