I have an FMF. My screw fell out, as well as the spark arrester. I do know mine was a machine threaded, allen head cap screw. About 4 or 5 mm if I recall.

DRZ Hi/Lo beam doesnt work

So I went for a ride after work and the headlight worked fine. Then after this rough dirt road I lost BOTH my high and low beam. This evening I looked into it and had no 12v at the bulb connector, so I opened the headlight switch to discover the Yellow/White wire on the top of the switch had broke loose at the solder joint. I will resolder it tomorrow evening after work.

Just thought I would share....

Connect it directly the coil pack via a piggyback spade connector

Mine is. Just cut the signal wire and solder and heart shrink it all together.

Do not do this. You are asking for a corroded or broken wire. Use solder and Marine heat shrink.

Removing the helmet lock

I want to remove the helmet lock, but leave the frame tab behind to mount a tool tube, anyone know the easiest way to do this? It looks like I could drill out the bolts, is that the best way?

Cheers,

Adrian

Unlock it with the key then undo the screw behind the retracted bar. Easy!

I beg to differ. I have a 2001 E and a 2004 S (with stock BSR). There is a big difference between the two (both are 14/47). The fcr carb has an accelerator pump, which is what changes the throttle response. If an E model doesn't perform better than a stock S or you have issues with starting there is something wrong. My E starts reliably hot or cold at temps from 100 F down to 25 F, it has the stock FCR jetted to match the full yosh system. Even a stock E should have better throttle response.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a stock S model. Just takes a little more clutch and rpm control compared to the E. Love my DRZs. :)

Since it seems relevant once upon a time I heard from a guy (yup) that the slide in a vacuum carb could jostle a bit in washboard or rough track and make inconsistent fuel delivery even with steady throttle application just from the mechanics of the carb. A pumper carb, by design, doesn't have this problem making for quicker and more consistent throttle.

True? Outlandish hootenanny? Often unspoken benefit of pumper vs vacuum carb?

When I was rebuilding my S I got a great deal on a pumper carb and it made a complete difference from the jetted 3x3 I had before.

For all you guys that went from the stock mikuni carb to the FCR, has your mpg's decreased by much?
