zgfiredude, thanks for the offer, the problem is I just can't find the DRZ250 part listed on any of the fiches.

I did look at the mounting tabs on my Djebel and they do look pretty similar to the pics of the DRZ400 units

That looks exactly like my kickstand switch.

Thumb Went Riding - Again!

I was shouted a ride in New Zealands Central Otago (Gibstone Valley - Just out of Queenstown). Amazingly beautiful this time of year with the change of season from summer to autum. The bike was a hire bike - a 09 DRZ250, it felt like it had a lot riders over it. The Guy on the CRF230 was my guide. The place I went to also does quad tours these are more popular than two wheel tours. As I was the only one on two wheels, it was just me and my guide.

How to shorten rear shock and forks?

I'm thinking of turning my drz into a sorta street/flat tracker,mainly using the stock parts,either by "chopping" some or buying new. My question is can I just cut the spring on the rear shock to get the stance I'm looking for and the front forks,what is the best way to lower them too,besides sliding them into the trees more? Am I just crazy for doing this? I don't think so! Thanks in advance.

Thanks man,I checked them out and I gotta say those prices are pretty steep! I've modified motorcycles in the past,chopping/bobbing but never to a dirt bike. I'll do some more checking into doing this on a VERY small budget and I'll try to post some pics of the stuff I do. BTW,to help pay for this little endevour,I've got a Whipps back rack and a Whipps front skid plate for sale if anyone wants them!

Spent some quality time with the DynoJet kit and the Keintech extended fuel screw yesterday.........Huge improvement!


I can now CONFIRM that the Keintech extended fuel screw for the: DR125SE, 200SE, DR250/350 (off road and dual sport), AND DR650S/SE FITS AND WORKS PERFECTLY!!!!

And at $15 bucks, it's a steal!!! I will call them back today and let them know so they can list it on their web site!

Doh!

Sorry to leave out the most important part! This is for the pumper carb (TM28) that is used on many of the US models.

Thanks for the good catch!!

Awsome, good work. I think an order in the iminant future is required for the Keintch fuel screw. What results do you have to report with the dynojet kit? Better bottom end (more snappy / better tourque)? More midrange? More top end?

Cheers John


Cheers

I was having some issues with it cutting out and sputtering under mid to full throttle......I am not a jetting expert, but I knew this to be main jet problems.

I went with the recommendations right out of the box on the Dynojet kit for my elevation (8,000 ft.). I am using the Dynojet needle in the third clip and with the stock spacer on the clip. Then, out came the 127.5 main jet, and in went the 108! Lastly, the fuel screw is set at 2.5 turns out, again, at the recommendations of Dynojet.

It started on the first tap of the starter, idles cleanly, and runs up through the revs without hesitation or stumble. It is crisp with gentle throttle roll on, or grab and twist hard! I have not had much of a chance to ride it as it is my daughter's bike, but her smile is definitely bigger!!

DRZ400 CDI on a DRZ250

I borrowed a DRZ400E CDI to try on my suspected bad DRZ250. Well, it works,at least to start and run. I'm not sure about anything else, but if anyone has a bad CDI it may be an option.

On another note, my orignal CDI turned out to be just fine. I was using a battery charger to try to start the bike, and at 200amp start mode it didn't have spark. After I turned it down to 40amp quick charge mode it worked and the bike started.

Does anyone here have DRZ250 parts? I need the boot between the carb and the airbox.
