Aftermarket pipe
« on: April 22, 2014, 07:59:52 pm »
Where should I look for a slip on aftermarket pipe for my DRZ?

The local Suzuki guy can order me a Leo Vince for R4 200, is that good? I also contacted Scorch in Ctn, but they want to keep my bike for 2 weeks. First prize will be a Yoshimura, but they seem very expensive and difficult to get hold of.

Order an oval cannister from Cowley. R1500 last year. Then take it to an exhaust shop to make up a stainless steel connection pipe for another R400- R500. Re-jet the carb. If FCR carb you are looking at 162 - 168 main jet. Cowley does two lengths for the oval cans - the one in this pic is the longer option of 470mm and deliberately fitted at that angle.

Full system Yoshi if you are rich and power hungry.

Thanks  :thumleft:  It looks like I may be able to get my hands on a used Cowley. what does "162 - 168 main jet" mean, anything in-between 162 and 168, or must I replace the 162 with a 168?

162, 165 or 168. Main jets for these FCR's are numbered that way i.e. 140, 142, 145, 148, 150 etc.
My 462 eventually ran spot-on here in PE with a 168 main, but some American riders report having to use 175 or even 178's.
Remember richer is safer than lean jetting. The latter burns valves.
