which carb does the aussie E model have these days?

if it's the mikuni BSR, welcome to the world of non-pumper carbs on a 4 stroke.

if you really wick the throttle open from idle, you should be able to make it stall. it's just the nature of the carb. the carb does not have an accelerator pump to feed extra fuel as the throttle is cracked wide open from idle. thus, it dies. the solution is to not open the throttle so far so fast from idle.

if it has the FCR or some other pumper carb, you have a problem.

Thanks for the info, i noticed the wrap was smoking and making a bad smell when i hit the dirt this weekend, i guess it does that cause its brand new.

how dare you demand parts that were shipped two weeks ago, stop calling were too busy to deal with you, yeah we have your money, yeah we said wed call you back 15 times, no we dont know where your stuff is, even though we told you yesterday it shipped 3 days ago...
Wow, I guess everyone has a bad experience with any given person occasionally. I guess I am a lucky customer because Eddie was on point on all of the helpful info I requested. He also made me a super trick custom wiring harness made to my very specific and one off specs. I have been wrenching on bikes for 20 years (I still hate wiring) and I have never seen him or heard of him giving out bad information. As far as customer service I can only speak from my dealings with him on that level.

I agree so I guess for every one bad experience there's two good ones. Have had nothing but great customer service and advice from them.

If you have the FCR, this cured the bog when whacking the throttle open from idle, for me night and day difference:(Focallength can skip this part)

When it cropped up again a couple weeks ago, this is what my accel pump diaphragm looked like:

Notice the cracked rubber part. Installed a new diaphragm this weekend and bog is gone.

Hope this helps,
Psycho

Question DRZ400SM Front Fender Black

Hi Guys

I'm a new DRZ400E 2012 owner and I really love the look of the tapered front fender on the DRZ400SM model.

Can anyone tell me where I may be able to get a black front fender that is normally on a SM model for my E model?

I really want to get a fender like the larger one featured on this page http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showthread.php?111321-Supermoto-Front-Fender-Pictorial-(DRZ-vs-Acerbis)

Also do you think there would be any fitment issues between the models?

I guess I missed focallength's response. It sucks that you've had that experience with them, but I gather that's not the norm.

My experience with them was in person, so I can't speak to their shipping policies. I brought an old E-model FCR and thought I just needed jets, but just to help a guy out Eddie tore into the carb and basically disassembled the thing on their counter and picked out the new parts and correct jets that I needed (diaphram looked like Psycho's and there was an O-ring that needed replacing). They charged me for the (cheap) parts I needed and nothing for his time.

I've recently fitted a YZF450 style front guard to my sons KX (UFO built).... Could be worth looking at.

As for fitment: nothing a drill can't fix.

DRZ-400 Packed

I'm getting ready for my first real adventure ride through Colorado and Utah. I will be living off my bike for 2 weeks and I have the bike mostly packed up. I'm only waiting on a few more things to come in but I could not be happier with the wolfman luggage rollie bag system I decided to go with. I used a large rollie up top and two medium rollies on the sides.

Packed inside is a sleeping bag, Camping chair, camp stove, pots/pans, soap, clothes, tent and rain fly, tools, 1911 pistol, cell phone with charging chord and accessories, 2 litres of extra fuel and some other miscelaneous small things. Sleeping pad is on top of the large rollie bag.

I will also be wearing a back pack with my camel back and the rest of my camping equipment. I'm trying to go as light as possible.

Here are some pics all loaded up

Hi!

Could be one of my first posts here to DR-Z 400 topic. Some things i have added to my 2006 DR-Z 400 S model




GPS holder for Garmin 478 and few switches to switch 12V power outled and also as i have Xenon light installed to switch xenon light on/off (just in came you need to drive very slowly, start bike several times etc)



Clarke 16l tank and el cheapo-fuel meter.




Rear luggage frame (I use Giantloop Basin saddlebag)



Giant Loop Buckin' Roll tank bag which fits nicely to bike

I have been also looking for a while to add more better windshield to bike for longdistance travelling. I made a deal with guy from Holland who used to make those (probably some have bought those) that i bought his mould what he used to make those fairings. So mould arrived today and i am making first samples very soon.

Hi!

I will keep you updated how those fairings turns out. I should have first test samples done in few weeks.

There is picture of two bikes with fairings made using that same mould from website of my friend who introduced me to fairing original maker.

DRZ400 Rear Brake Issue/Bleed Advice

My DRZ400E has been sitting most of the winter. Went to go for a spin, but soon discovered I had no rear brake. Master cylinder fluid is at the full line. Had full rear brake on the last ride. Was going to do a bleed, but a quick G-Search gave me some ThumperTalk.com threads talking about how difficult it is.

Anyone have any tips/suggestions/methods to share?

Thanks!

Bleeding the brakes is actually really easy on most motorcycles, the DRZ included. Is there anything in particular that you're hung up on? If you really want to make it easy on yourself, you can get speed bleeders. Even a moron can bleed their brakes properly with those.
