The DRZ std tailpipe is approx 3.9Kg, RMZ is approx 2.3Kg - so it's a good 'high weight' saving, quite noticeable when riding.
Cheers, talk soon.
Sorry to drag up an old post but I am looking at fitting a replacement to my old 98 SJ45A DR250XC. Could you possibly post a pic of the exhaust from the other side as Im really struggling to find anywhere who will sell me a bush. What is yours made from? Is it a standard graphite item or did you get it machined from soft metal?

Finally, anyone know if there are any differences other than inl;et diameter between an 06 and an 08 spec RMZ250 exhaust as the 06 ones are really hard to find at reasonable prices.

Many thanks

Hopefully these photos will clarify a few questions,
The bush I had made by a friend with a lathe or find something slightly larger that can easily be machined down/up to the required size, you could even use S/S or brass.
06 and 08 RMZ250 tailpipes look very similar, use google images and look at hi-res images of both bikes and although they went from a steel frame to alloy frame the tailpipes look very similar dimensionally.
The tailpipes shouldn't be too hard to find secondhand as these owners love to upgrade to 'performance' pipes
Good luck, any other ? fire away, cheers.

It's getting there very slowly

Well as my little beast has taken me the best part of 2 years to put back together ( thanks multiple deployments) the motor is together, I just want to get a workshop to double check the timing so it doesn't implode on start up.

I trial fitted the drz400 rear shock.

It will fit with some slight mod to the shock and a little to the bike. The shock mod being the lower mounting piece needs to be shaved a couple of mil easy side to fit the 250 knuckle, and to the bike the right hand side plastic cover metal lug that hold it in place need a gentle tapping with a hammer to allow the shock resivour to fit. I may also grind it back about 10mm so it has no chance to touching.
Also fitted my hand guards and windshield and GPS mount.
I also got brackets made to fit the XR400 17 liter tank so that will be fitted soon

Still to come is a tm33 pumper carb, new exhaust and some soft panniers.
Once it all setup I will run it in then be gifting it the the wife
I've stopped progress this week as I bought a ktm625 so I've been having fun on that instead!

Rear shock Upside down but needs shaving to fit

GPS mounted with a ram 1inch ball mount with gizzmovest. Still lets me se the speedo

Front of the bike with screens for bikes windshield and hand guards

I got the shock for free, brand new!

Lets just say it fell of the back of a truck!

Can anyone offer some advice on what rear sprocket I would need to give my Djebel 250 more lower pulling power to get up steep hills?

I've read on Thumper Talk that the DRZ400 rear sprocket is a direct swap for the DRZ250, so that should open up the available parts to choose from.

Depending if you ride on the road or not, go 2x teeth more on the rear sprocket for off road type of riding - this is very good for off roading, but it may make the engine very busy at 100kph or so tho.
Leave the front sprocket standard, cheers.
