Hey guys (and girls) I need a couple of brake relocator brackets.
I need one to run SM wheels on an S.
I need another to run an EBC 320mm rotor on my SM.
Any ideas on who would have the right ones?

Plating of Cylinders???? Thanks in advance. Im in the Wodonga Vic. area.
Harry's Machine in Northborough Mass does excellent head work and could tell you how to handle any cylinder needs you have. Google them for the number.

However, unless you're confident that the E shock has been serviced lately, you're talking about putting on a decade+ old shock with who knows how many hours on it, and the use/abuse that comes with those hours. I'd invest in a rebuild, and get it valved/sprung for your weight and intended use.

Yes it is but we ship all our stuff to them. If you'll pay postage I'm sure they'll do it, although it may not be cost effective.

Finding a machine shop to do it right is the hard part. I have had more heads f***ed by idiots that didn't know what they were doing than successes so went out and bought the tools which cost a little more than a replacement head, but allows me to tidy up a head 3 or 4 times before replacement
the valve seats have a special hardcoating; how do you replicate that in your home shop?
also, the most common head failure is the cam support failure due to oil starvation. They have no bearing/bushing and must be align bored: how do you do that?
I wish I had the equipment to handle that, not to mention the skill.

What a difference jetting makes, bike now pulls and gets to higher speeds so much better, so glad i removed that 134MJ and put the 142.5 MJ back in there, the stock gearing works very well imo.

I have the JD kit in mine, to be honest, this bike may be a little to much for me, maybe I'm a wuss or to new to bikes, but I'm scared of the damn thing... its freaky fast

I'm starting to wonder if I bit off more than I could chew and maybe a 250 would have been a better fit... anyone else ever have this issue?

Lol, me and you are in the exact same situation, i just recently sold a XT250 very similar to your DR200SE in size and power, so yeah, having twice the power is new to me also.

What jets did you end up going with as your main and pilot? you will get used to the bike, im loving the power for sure, i do wish it was lighter tho.

The guy I bought it from jetted it but I have the jd box with left overs at home so I'll have to check which I have left. I wanted a nice commuter that was able to go offroad and I got that but I am on the fence on whether I'll keep it or downsize. I'm giving it a few weeks while waiting on the state to send my title to make a decision. I hope I get used to it... I love it but like I said, I don't want to be afraid of it either haha.

Its okay if you guys think I'm a wuss, I sure feel that way at the moment :P

lol, you are not a wuss, you just need to get used to it, i wouldnt mind a little more power

keep the bike, you will get used to the power, and if you downgrade, you will miss it.

Starting Problems

I replaced the petcock and that fixed the problem thanks, but now I have a new problem... I can get the bike to start right away at full choke but it stalls in about a minute. It then refuses to start after that. I can come back in a half hour and it will start but the same problem happens again. I did replace the float in the carburetor, but I'm fairly certain it is at the correct height. Any thoughts?

sounds to me like you may have forgotten to install the vacuum line running to the backside of the petcock. That is if you replaced the petcock with a stock vacuum operated one. If you installed a gravity operated petcock, you need to look into any reasons why fuel might not be running to the carb, or if there is a kink in the short fuel hose. The reason you would only get the bike to run for a few minutes would be because you have a small amount of fuel left in the bowl, you then run it out, and the petcock is not supplying more fuel.

Now after talking for a bit another idea comes to mind. If you know for sure that the petcock is flowing fuel. Then you need to check the float in the carb, and make sure that the float valve is not stuck or the float itself is not stuck. That would cause this problem as well.

Start with the simple: vacuum line, then check for fuel flow from petcock, then start playing with the carb.

Good luck. If you want a nice trick to get that finicky tightly spaced carb out send me a PM and ill walk you through a trick I used that alleviates some carb removal aggravation on the drz.

If you find that there is no fuel flowing through the petcock then also check to see if atmospheric pressure is present in the tank. If stock gas cap remove it. It could be plugged. My aftermarket gas cap has an air hose into it. Usually hoses don't get blocked but check anyway. If you have one of those very short one way goodies in there then remove it during the diagnosis.You might find that was the culprit.
