Mfr Nameplate on my bike says GVWR is 740lbs...this on a 2006 "S". By the time you add a rack or racks, 4gal tank and a few other bits, you're probably pushing a wet weight of around 320lbs. You've got a 420lb payload capacity, including the rider...that's a lot of crap to hang on a bike that size. I'd say the most I've ever had on mine is 50-60lbs and that would be plenty for weeks of traveling. Of course some people travel don't exactly travel light!

This is probably futile, but here is yet another noisy DRZ video...... This noise has gotten slowly worse this year, and its having more and more trouble in the cold......04 400S, 36000kms, read the description in the vid for more detail. I'm guessing the noise is a stretched timing chain maybe? where should I go from here? should i start with a leakdown?

Is that the stock cam chain tenstioner still on your bike. If it is may want to try a manual tenstioner to see it that helps?

from what I hear the stock tensioner is only a pre 2001 issue.

Was trying to reject today. The jets that come with the Dynojet kit are listed. As DJ 128-DJ136. The stock jet is a 142.5. Is adding the Dynojet main decreasing the flow of gas? I am a little cornfused here.

Thanks for any help.

The FMF jet kit i had also had those smaller main jets, i think it is because the FMF jet needle is smaller, so it allows more fuel, still the biggest mj in the FMF kit was a 136, bike was surging big time at WOT(starving for fuel) , replaced that with the stock 142.5 and it ran better, but once i put in the 147.5 mj, it was great.

you may have a older jet kit, or a stage one,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, it is a stage one kit. The explanation I have received is that the replacement needle is thinner, thereby allowing more fuel flow and that Dynojet uses different numbers on their jets. I guess experimentation will work it all out.

The kit I had was the same... jets were way smaller and it ran like ass. I stole a larger jet from my old DJ kit from my 06 SM and still used the thinner needle and it runs awesome now.

Im Picking up a new toy Saturday. :)




I'm trading my 03 sv1000s for an 06 drz400sm. I'm gonna miss the fuel injection but have always wanted a super moto. Insurance is dirt cheap too!







Most importantly, ill do my research I won't ask any dumb questions about gearing, tanks or seats :p
