Where can I find a bracket that will work for a 310mm rotor???

thanks for the help!
I don't think there's an adapter to relocate the S caliper to fit the SM rotor. Since the hub is the same, your cheapest option is to buy another S rotor and put it on the SM wheel. Otherwise, you'll need the 320mm relocator bracket and TWO 320mm rotors.

It's a Kolpin Fuel Pack Jr. 1.5g tank, very similar to the RotopaX products, and mounts the same way. I'm sure if you search for either one of those, you'll probably find an international source local to you.

Thanks I will try, I think it's an interesting option for long routes...

Question??

I'm running a set of Warp 9 rims(love em) with ktm size 450 hubs on my DRZ. I'd like to get my gearing back to stock (DRZ S model). I've ordered a 40 size rear sprocket. What are your thoughts??

Any help is appreciated...

Love the rims.. They are a great compromise for adventure/ dual sport riding. I own a 2006 drz400 sm. But would like the bike to travel smoother, less buzzy, on the freeways while I commute on it with the larger tires. I'll stick with my stock setup while I have the sm tires on it...

Thanks, looks like I am going to fork out another $200 or so on the SM wheels.....Guess the 320 conversion will be bad ass, might be worth the extra money!

Why two rotors? One for each set of rims?

Or just run the S disk on the dirt wheels like normal.

Can anybody offer advice for jetting my stock DRZ for riding in -10C? (I think) I know I need to add more fuel to richen up the mixture, but that's where my knowledge ends :)

It is running poorly now? I've ridden mine down to 10 deg F or so and it ran fine. It's probably not optimal, but for most of us, adjusting jetting with weather changes is a bridge too far. You jet for the average conditions and live with the extremes.

I'm a believer in the James Dean Jetting kits. They are designed to work with the 3x3 mod, which is to remove the snorkle in your airbox and enlarge the hole to 3"x3". This gives more air to go along with the increase in fuel that the jetting kit provides. The kit comes with very good instructions, but they forget to mention to buy the Kientech extended fuel screw and use the stock pilot jet when re-jetting. The Kientech richens up the pilot circuit, which eliminates the need for the larger pilot jet. I did this mod to three DRZ-S's and they all turned out great. I ride in 14f degree temps (-10c) and the bike runs very well.

To be honest, I haven't actually had it out in this temp. I am just afraid of doing any damage.

I don't doubt your results, but I would've thought the jetting wouldn't be able to span such a temperature range. When I use to ride a snowmobile, I know they were jetted from the factory for around 0F which meant when the temps got close to freezing, the jetting was off. I imagine the same thing would be true in reverse (jetted for above freezing meant it'd be off at below freezing). I'll see how it runs as is, but I'm worried about doing damage.

Thanks for all the replies!

You're not going to do any damage. Again, the jetting may be somewhat leaner than optimal for very cold temps, but you can't hurt the engine. I bet it will run fine.
