Got the Yamaha Petcock

Thanks for the info. Found the petcock and carb kit on ebay. A bit cheaper than ProCycle. Hope the quality is good. Sprung for the one from CA, not ChinA

Just got home from 5.5 hour round trip picking up my new to me 2002 DRZ400E. PO had put on a FMF slip on and all wiring and lights minus the speedo. No plate yet but as soon as the speedo comes in that nad boy is gonna be my new baby. I don't think he jetted it right as there is hesitation at 1/2 throttle but that's easy enough to fix.

Unrelated note what the main differences between the E and S other than road legality and pumper carb?

DRZ400S bikes ruled the trails on that trip. It was the most prevalent machine out there.

Playing around with the carb this morning trying to dial in the jetting and I noticed a burning plastic smell. This is happening from the slip on:



I have not seen any product that prevents the heat from melting the airbox. Has anyone seen this and if so, how did you get around it?

Atlas, gotta luv the wind screen.

Seriously considering the Tubliss sytem but gonna try sealing the rims first.

Redleger, something here should work too, or instead of, exhaust wrap, probably also available at the auto parts store.

I'm gonna find some black wrap similar. Thanks for the suggestions. Never would have thought of that.

S.O.S (Suzuki Outta Service) I think I lunched my gear box.

I need the help of all the DRZ Guru's!

Background: 2008 DRZ400SM, 20,000 miles. I would say it has had a pampered life other than hauling my 240lb butt around. No wheelies, no clutchless shifts. No rev limiter bumps. Yes, I still managed to have fun on it!

Anyway I was riding home from work, approximately 50 MPH when the bike did a sudden serge. It was accompanied by the sound of metallic crunch. The transmission didn't lock up and it continued on. But it had a new sound to the engine. Something rubbing. I down shifted it to 4 and that was when the neutral light came on. I was close to home so I just putted along on the edge of the road.

As I was pulling up to my driveway I instinctively click down a gear and let out the clutch. That's when the rear wheel locked up and I stopped.

I no longer have a neutral. You can still shift through the gears. And the clutch still appears to be working since I have to use it to push the bike around.

I'm still in denial. A UJM with transmission problems? Impossible! It's not even broken in yet!

Do you have to split the cases to work on the transmission?

Dana.
Here is a picture to invoke sympathy.

HELP ME GET BACK ON THE ROAD, Please.

Sorry mate, I am no DRz guru so I cant help you. I am considering a DRz so I happened on this thread.

That said, from the sounds of it, youre fucked. This sounds remarkably similar to what happens to some DR650s (check the DR650 3rd gear blowup thread). As the engine/transmission is one unit, you will need to completely pull out the motor/trans and split the cases. Not sure what caused it in this case as its different then the DR is.

Best of luck and do wait for some DRz owners to chime in before pulling it apart.

Is anyone running the flatslide carb with an aftermarket exhaust(FMF) and airbox mod?
If so what jets are you running? I don't wanna have to order 3 different jets for trouble shooting. I know I am cheap, but what used to be a 3 dollar part is now 10+ apiece. I have an old Dynojet kit for my drz250 but they are not big enough for these mods. Thanks in advance for any input. I hope to have this thing finished by this weekend so I can get some riding in!

Recipes don't often work particularly well. Make changes based on what you've got and what it is doing.
Where can I order these 3 dollar jets?
