Malcolm's DRZ400E mods - Xaust Fitted!
« on: May 20, 2013, 10:46:13 am »
I thought I would make my own thread just to keep people that's interested in the mods being done and most importantly, asking for advice.

This is my stock 2004 DRZ400E:




Firtst mod pending - will be taking the bike to scorch to fit this today:



Oval Aluminium Sleeved canister
Pipe with stainless perforated inside and stainless endcap. Any bolt-on available.
Price: R2 100

Malcolm: awesome  :thumleft:

sjk: They might. Otherwise just ask around. There are lots of stock header pipes sitting in peoples' homes. They put on mod pipes and the headers sit gathering dust.

Scorch made me a header for R1000 to fit a akrapovic to my drz. The header is in my moms garage somewhere.

Did you by any chance buy this from a guy in Worcster. It seems very familiar.

Indeed, the guy's name is Willem.

The stock exhaust is quite high, the scorch should give it a nice rumble.

Hi Malcolm. Did the R2100 include fitment? Did they make a jig from your bike so that i can order a pipe to be sent up to PE?

It was R2500 with installment in total, the bike needs a linkage pipe aswell. Did you mean if they took a pic of my bike? No they did not. You can call Reinard and refer to Malcolm with the DRZ400E. He'll probably remember.

No, I meant jig. That means they can bend the next connection pipe and prepare a order without having a bike present. Cowley has jigs for a DRZ and at R1500 for a stainless oval pipe with stainless connection + R80 postage I might just go with them. I was very happy before with the twin pipes on my 660 tenere!

But all that said, the Scorch on your bike looks very good. perfect angle and length! Update this thread when you get the jetting done for that pipe, please.

Oh ok sorry misunderstood there. You can give scorch a ring to get the information you need.

About the jetting, I asked Reinard, he said I don't have to do jetting for the Z. He has built bikes from scratch lots of times so I think he knows what he's talking about t. I left the jetting for another day instead... :biggrin:

I must add. I've heard a DRZ with fmf, leovince, bosson...Nothing comes near what a DRZ with a scorch sounds like IMHO. It gives you the feeling of what my avatar is doing... :D
