I can't help you there because I didn't use the Dynojet needle but basically you want to find out what people using the Dynojet Stage II kit used.

Thanks, i pulled out the carb, and it had the stock 22.5 pilot in there with a 134 main, and the adjustable needle with the clip in the 4th position, so now its got the 22.5 pilot with 3 turns out on the fuel screw, i put the 142.5 main jet back in, and left the needle in the 4th clip position, seems to run very well now.

thanks guys, btw, removing the carb was actually pretty easy on this bike, i just pressed the air box tube and had enough space to remove and install.

Zero problems with the DRZ! I think it is one of the best light weighted travel bikes. So much fun.

That's awesome, good for you. I guess that says a lot about the bike.

Just wanted to post two pictures of my DRZ. I recently went on a trip to Redwood National Park with my wife and daughter. They took the BMW F800GS w/sidecar (posted on advrider) and I rode the DRZ. It was great riding and camping. Planning on more trips.

Nice looking DRZ, and love that seat. Is it suede?

Thanks. Yup, suede. I'm looking for some weatherproofing now that the rain has started.

If the fuel screw is 3 turns out, it may vibrate out and you could lose it. If you need to turn it out that far to make it run right, it means you need to go with the larger #25 pilot jet. With the larger pilot, you'll only have to turn the fuel screw out about 2 turns or so.

I should have asked this first. Do you have an extended fuel screw that you can adjust with your fingers?

Any of you guys run a Clark tank, Raptor petcock, fuel filter, and a stock carb? Not much room for a filter and I kind of like running one. Pictures appreciated.

Could you let me know the details of your bars/HDB setup, and triple clamp? I want to do the same, and curious to see a few pics of t. Thanks

Thanks, i will order a 25 pilot, and will install it next time im in the carb, wish i had it available to me today, when i had the carb out.

oh, and i do not have the extended fuel screw, it is the stock flat head one that is way in there, the extended one sure would be nice to have.

You've made a mistake and that is going to cost you... Either close the air box back to stock or spring for the DJ S2 kit or the recommended JD kit.

The difference between 1500ft and sea level at the same temperature is about 2% richer (ie requires 2% leaner settings). Start with the recommended low altitude settings.
Thanks for the info, the bike is running great now that way it is, so i will just ride it.

THANX, now I just need to order springs

I totally agree with you. We took a same trip in June/July (50 days, 18750 km) to Mongolia. I rode on a DRZ400 and I had only 1 problem: the drivechain was worn out after 17 000 km

Here you can find some info/picture about the trip: RIDE TO MONGOLIA 2012

I run ProTaper RC High bars and the HDB with the ADVdx top clamp for two Powerlet outlets and a couple of push buttons for the ignition. I use the HDB led turn signals and mirrors. The stabilizer is a Scotts sub-mount with the BRP triple clamp. I'm also using a Vapor dash. The RAM mount is for my GPS. I'm still looking for a brighter headlight but haven't settled on anything yet.

I'll try and get a couple of pics.
