    Changing sprockets, new chain needed?

    Thanks for the replies. Time for a new sprocket!
  2. I am currently running a 14 counter shaft with the stock 44 rear sprocket and stock chain and I want to go to a 47 rear sprocket on my 2005 400S. Can anyone tell me if I will need a longer chain for this? I know I could just try it and see if it works, but if I'm going to order a new rear sprocket I want to get the chain at the same time if it's needed. Thanks

    Any good dirt roads to ride out by Duvall, WA?

    Sounds good. Give us an update on what you find. I have my doubts that it's open, but you never know.

    That is a bummer. I was thinking they probably gated off the roads. I remember the gravel pit shooting area as well. I think I probably did some shooting there several years ago. Anyways, thanks for the replies.
  5. It's been years since I've been out in that area, but I do recall there are a network of dirt roads that went on for miles. I just thought it might be a good place to go and get on some dirt since it's not very far from where I live. I just don't know if the roads are still open or how far you can go. Thanks for any input anyone might have.
  6. I'm glad to send a reply. With lower gearing you may get the bike to lift the front tire when nailing the throttle, but if you street ride most of the time, you probably don't want to gear it down. My brother who is a very good rider, also owns a 2005 400s. His bike is geared at 15/47 and he has to pull up to get the bike to wheelie. His jetting is 140 main, 25 pilot and Dynojet needle on 3rd clip. He is running with the stock muffler but he has done the 3X3 air box cutout. I hope this helps.
  7. Decky: My bike is a 2005 DRZ400S and I just completed the same carb. and airbox modifications that you have. I also have an FMF Q4 slip on with stock header. My stock fuel screw is out 3.5 turns. Right away I noticed my bike pulls harder than before, but I can't say the front wheel will come up just by nailing the throttle. I will still need to pull up on the handlebars.

    I just picked up a '97 myself a couple months ago with only 435 miles on it. First bike I've owned in 15 years! I consider myself a novice rider and so far I like the bike alot except for the rear fender is so damn high. You really have to swing your leg up over the thing! I had trouble on a couple hills I got stuck on and it was a little tough getting my leg over the beast for the turn around and decent. I've also heard bad things about the stock Edelbrock carb. Mine has it, but so far it seams to run okay. Stock gearing was a bit high for my liking on the trails so I changed out the C/S to a 14T. Otherwise, tons of power and great suspension.
