2017 DRZ400S (black and blue - I wonder if that should have told me something...) A bit of background: Did the 3x3 mod using the JD Jetting kit and the Keintech extended fuel screw with the following setup: JD blue needle, clip in 4th from top position 155 main jet pilot jet stock (22.5) with the Keintech extened fuel screw turned out about 2 1/4 turns. Other than the carb mod the engine is stock, the exhaust is stock and it's got about 1900km (less than 1200 miles). Last week (coolish 11-13C) the bike ran very well (as I said in the master 3x3 post, it woke the bike up). Great throttle response from idle to WOT. Last evening (a very unseasonable 23C) the bike started but died when I blipped the throttle. WHAT!!?? Restart and same thing. Restart and ease the throttle open slowly. It bogged just off idle and then ran fine. If I kept out of the near idle area it seemed like it did last week. Once it got back close to idle it bogged and stumbled. Not a good traffic response. (died on highway starting from light...paddle frantically to shoulder. Started right up and was able to take off with a more than usual (for me) handful of revs. (Ride home last night from coffee with the DS boys I did get to 125km on the highway without issues. Just the whole getting started fuss. Oh, and a constant, small throttle opening at low speed (just up off the idle), the bike bucked like it was stalling but the forward momentum kept it from stalling. Unnerving to say the least. Today I confirmed the fuel screw had not "wiggled" itself loose - it had not. I fiddled with it (according the the various instructions on this site and elsewhere) and couldn't get rid of the stumble. I did get it to where, if I was very deliberate, I could slowly increase the speed off idle and get over the "stumble bump" A test ride again had me stalling from a stop. A generous handful of revs and clutch slipping got me underway, but this isn't normal, So, what's changed? I don't honestly know. I did refuel before last week's satisfying ride, putting about 50km. (the tank was about 2/3 full and I topped it up) Chevron 94 (pump says no ethanol) is what I always put in, and what as in it previously. Before last week's ride the bike had sat, unridden since early March. (about a month). So carbahooter gurus... any ideas? Did my good gas go bad? My karma got twisted, blinker fluid leaked in? Tomorrow I'll drain the gas from the tank and the carb and start with fresh 94 while I await the forums wisdom.
I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for. I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season. I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft. I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home. I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding. I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able. Are there any disadvantages with this? I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.
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 ?
