    Random pics.

    That looks like it's going to be a hell of a lot faster than those little 2 stroke kits...

    Slip on exhaust jetting?

    I used the open pipe DJ jetting for a White Bros slip on and the bike ran fine.

    best upgrades for drz400 with 15/38 gearing

    It depends. There was a E33 model that was sold in California which had the BSR36 mm carburetor instead. Which does your bike have? If you are unsure take a picture and we will tell you

    I was able to cover most of the cost selling my Yoshi on eBay also. How is a MRD shipped to your door?

    I had the prequel to the RS2, the RS3 system meant for E model. When I switched from it to the MRD Z Pro (SSW Edition) I only had Hotcams, an old FCR 39 slant and the Trail Tech flywheel. I was pretty happy with the change. It added a bit of a surge to the midrange and pulled harder on top. Definitely not night and day like stock bikes vs your bike but noticable. It made the bike feel more like the mx thumpers.

    How far do you want to go? Yes, a pipe and jetting will help somewhat. You have to understand that it takes a full exhaust system, cams, 3x3 mod, FCR and higher compression just to get back to the DRZ400's original "mild" state of tune.

    Oh. 99.999% of the time I use the TT phone app.

    The app is finicky sometime. Sometimes I get the same error when I try to send messages.

    That's a load of crap... They should take some of the money Barker paid for those ads yesterday and fix the app.

    Tire size options

    I have the Shinko 216MX which is a copy. It works good for slick rocks , logs and hard surfaces but can be sketchy in loose dirt and often breaks traction without warning. It's particular unplanted in corners. I will be replacing it with something else this spring.

    If I remember right you're in California right? If you're in the LA or Sacramento areas and can wait a few weeks I'll hook you up with a mag base and indicator.

    What is the best way to go about actually adjusting the cam? Since you cannot exactly rotate it while it is compressing the spring that you would want to check it, do the math, then loosen and move it when the lobe isn't pressing the bucket? It seems you would want to loosen the sprocket, spin the engine however many degrees you're looking for without the cam actually moving, tighten and remeasure to see if you got it right?

    FCR 39(?) from some KTM

    Is it a FCR ? Yes. Is it 39mm? Probably if it is off an early KTM Sounds like you found 1 of the 900,000,000,457,907,142 jetting posts, you know what to do Will the TPS matter? Probably not. Set it up and ride. For fun grab a buddy and play "Is my TPS connected?". I doubt you'll be able to tell. What's important is that carburetor is around 2 decades old. It may work decently or it may never work right at all. You need to start by giving it a good inspection. I can almost bguarantee the needle jet needs replaced. Make sure the vacuum release plate, seal and accelerator pump components are in good shape. Also inspect the slide and body for wear. Good luck, used carbs are hit or miss. You have to realize they are salvaged from bike that were run into the ground. I had a used slant for years. Yes, it was far better than the stock carb but once I got a brand new carb I realized a level of response and power that I was definitely lacking before.

    Rejetting for aftermarket exhaust

    You don't know how to use the file. See the tabs at the top? Click on the BSR36, plenty of Yoshi setups. An engine is an air pump, the more efficiently it moves air the more power it makes. Without opening the airbox to 3x3 opening the exhaust system mod isn't reaching it's full potential.
