    DRZ Exhaust issue

    Thanks guys, that makes total sense! Yes there is another mounting point towards the back and that collar was not shipped with the muffler - so I will chase that up with the supplier. Thank you all very much! Cheers, Eno.

    DRZ Exhaust issue

    It has stickers on both sides of the muffler. All the fixings seem right - see pic attached (sorry it is not thr greatest).

    DRZ Exhaust issue

    Thanks Patto but I don't see how I could have as the tab on the pipe and the mounting point on the bike line up well as does the pipe bend. Looking at the photo from behind the bike the bolt mount is on the right of the pipe. I thought that maybe I could rework the mount so that the mounting tab on the bike goes through it, but it is the wrong direction. I'll add a pic later to show what I mean.

    DRZ Exhaust issue

    Thanks Eagle but spaces wont help as the fixing is on the inside so it would make the problem worse! I may just have to take this to an exhaust shop and see if they can bend it for me.
  5. I have changed over my stock DRZ muffler for a FMF Q4 (mainly as the Q4 is quieter believe it or not!!). I have a couple of issues that I would like some advice on. 1) The rear wheel hits the muffler when compressed. Is there any adjustment in this or have I done something wrong? (see pics). It is an FMF Q4 for a DRZ so I am not sure why it hits - perhaps my tyre is too wide?? 2) on deacceleration it pops quite a bit - expecically going down hill. Is this likely to be due to an air leak either where the slip on joins the header or where the header joins the motor (I did not remove the header from the engine) or is this likley to be that the bike is running too lean? If too lean is it a matter of just lifting the needle (at the moment it is set on the middle notch) or rejetting or just adjusting teh mixture screw at the bottom? (and how the f*** do you turn it without taking the carb off?) Thanks for any help. Cheers, Ian
  6. Hey Tom, In the the Dandenongs so not far form you. I haven't had much of a chance to get out much lately but be keen to some weekends, especially so close to home!

    Big River ride

    Thanks Rupert, Rob and everyone else that came out yesterday. I really enjoyed myself and had a great ride. Appreciate all the tips along the way too. Look forward to the next ride. Cheers Ian.

    Did look like a great ride. Sorry I couldn't make it this time.

    Red hot DRZ 400 header

    No it is stock. I followed the thread you put up there too Pygmygod and it looks like my glowing exhaust is normal. Thanks for that, glad it is me being sensitive rather than a real problem. Bike might be a bit lean, I might have to re look at mt carb. Cheers, Ian.

    Red hot DRZ 400 header

    It was dark outside but I was in the shed which is well let. The bikes seemed to run OK (it does have an idle issue which is separate). The exhaust does pop a bit when you back off the throttle.
  13. I fired up my DRZ this evening to warm it up before changing the oil. I noticed that after running the engine for only a couple of minutes (choke was still on) that the exhaust header was glowing red hot where it bolts to the engine. I have never noticed this before and was wondering if this was normal or that I may have a problem. If I do have a problem, what would it be? Or could it be just because I still had the choke on that it was running hot? Any ideas will be gratefully received. Cheers, Eno.

    Beginners ride Gembrook 31/1/16

    I'd like to also express my thanks to everybody for the day. Thanks to Chris for organising it and Brockie and Shane for sweeping. Also thanks to Lindon for helping me get my temperamental DRZ to start in the morning! I really enjoyed myself and look forward to the next ride.
  15. Sorry I've just seen this tread. Yes I'd love to do some adventure riding. My Misses isn't into bikes so we go 4wding at the moment but I'd love to give it a go with my bike. I'd probably stick with my DRZ400 and modify it to suit a longer trip.
