I shot ya a PM Bill!

In reality for wide(r) open roads at elevation i would probably prefer the 400.

The weight is no comparison though. The 400 feels (and probably is) about 50lbs heavier. That isnt an issue when you are moving though only when you have to pick it up!

Well as I could feel I can say that its a thing of choices,each carb has their own characteristics,as your friend said the CV is very predictable and I love it very smooth rides,the pumper as I said its a lil' bit more agressive and makes more pulls, it adds a bit more power even my yoshi pipe sounds louder.

After Market Tail Pipe

Hi Guys,

What after market exhaust tail pipe do you boys suggest I get for my son's 250 (Oz spec - K7).

Then what else is required to get some more power out the engine, without touching reliability?

Thanks Guys

i'm finding the drz400E is 262 lbs
http://www.suzukicycles.org/DR-serie...shtml~isoraami
and the drz250 is 253
http://www.bikez.com/motorcycles/suz...z_250_2002.php

so 9lbs difference. that's nothing.

maybe the 400 is more top heavy?

CV carbs take time to build power) and that worked well for more technical riding when you needed to make a move...now.
Thanks for the replies, think I will give the pumper a shot. I can always go back to the CV if I like it better.

Hi guys
I am looking for some parts before I would take apart my Djebel as I want to get it ready in 20 days.
I would like to change also the exhaust with an used one and I only found 450RMZ ones.Do you think is going to fit in place and would not alterate the engine output?

Also I am looking for a rebuild kit for the front suspension.

Thank you

moose racing has a kit for the front suspension, the 450 muffler will need a bit of fitting the work as well as some new jets in the carb

Well TD I dont know why but I put the CV carb at the TM28 boot and it fit a bit looser ,I thought it was the opposite,that the CV had a bigger mouth.
It worked fine just tight it a lil´more.

the pumper will fit the cv boot but will not seal right

i know i tried it, it will work well enough for a test ride but that's about it

This may help.

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.
