Hi Jack

Don't know the cranking power of that baby but even a stock 7ah can only give a couple of go's. I think it will be a good mod.

For anyone who is interested in DRZ modifications here is a good idea of what you can get out of the bike (research and tuning done by Burned from Thumpertalk) :

the tale of a 57hp 05 drz sm.NOW 60 HP 10/31/08

SEE POS #304 10/31/08 FOR UPDATES

finished the final stage yesterday on jonathans sm.

the following graphs show every change we made.

run4= brand new 0 mile stock 05 sm with corrected main jet for 5500ft

run16= added akra full ti system (it was chosen against my suggestion,because it looked cool  )

run33= 3x3 mod,dj kit with correct jetting

run50= added 39mm fcr,with correct jetting

run61= vp ultimate4 fuel test

run76= 94mm big bore (starting to have high rpm cylinder fill issues,cams needed,pipe becomes suspect)

run86= hotcams stg2 intake stg 1ex (getting better,really start to suspect the pipe isnt flowing)

run95= added 41mm fcr,with correct jetting (we were suprised at the gain,however the pipe is really choking)

run111= added yosh ti trs (proved my initial suspicions).

run147= added +5mm hotrods crank,RHC 187 cams (degreed),my own porting with over size intake valves only.





FCR adds around 5 hp. 440 kit another 3 hp. Hotcams 2 hp. With 470 kit, RHC cams and bigger valves a whopping 11 hp jump !

I've read alot about Eddie Sisneros' bike - that thing is wicked and apparently there is no negative effect on reliability.
I would love to take my bike to a dyno to get an idea of hom much it pushes out.

I think my jetting is pretty close but I'd be surprised if I'm getting close to 35hp. I'd love to feel your bike to feel the difference the carb, etc makes.

Must make a plan  :thumleft: When I had the Mikuni carb I spent endless nights playing with the jetting, had it close could lift the front in second. Faark those were some good times, now the bike just stands in the garage gathering dust  :-\

I have a question regarding the gearing and I am sure some of you have played around with the Z's gearing.

The SM's stock gearing is 15/41. How much of a difference will 14/41 make?

That will take you to +- 15-44 equivalent

1T on the front equals about 3-4T on the back...

Will left your revs quite a bit at cruising speed.

Check out www.gearingcommander.com

You can input all your stuff there and it will give you all different possibilities for sprocket combo's

Thanks Bus  :thumleft:
I've read a bit about the technical differences - very lekker link.

My bike quite comfortably (well comfortably for the engine atleast and not really the rider  ;) ) accelerates to and beyond 140km/h and I usually cruise between 110 and 120km/h so the little bit of loss in top-end is not a major concern for me at this stage. I mostly do town riding so seldom travel that fast.

What I am more interested in however is the difference in "feel". How much different wil the Z feel with that sprocket change. Will the change be really noticable or will I be wasting my time? I want more pull low down and want the front wheel to come up a little easier. I still run the Mikuni carb so the front wheel doesn't come up without quite a bit of tugging at the bars.
