Kewl so did the clearance check and its all close enough at this point

exhaust is 0.25mm (bang in the middle where it should be)
intake is 0.20 (right at the far end where it should be)

hurmf the hotcams manual states 0.10 - 0.15mm for the intake, will have a chat with the thumper talk boys

So your intake's out?
It would seem so.

Dont think LeCap knew about the diff spec, though wouldnt have expected him to.

I would put the clearances at 0.12 :thumleft:, you should also know that the Hotcam, any aftermarket or reprofiled cams are generally noisier because of a steeper ramp and shallower base circle.....Don't stress to much about rattle as long as your clearances are correct.

Awesome thanks  :thumleft:

as I understand it the OEM shims come in 0.5mm increments and the aftermarket (like hotcam) ones come in 0.2mm increments. any idea where I can get aftermarket shims locally?

just FYI: the WR 250/400/426/450 1998-04 Performance Insert [PMB-01-5500] fits into the Yoshi rs-2 100% and makes it much much quieter

Hello DRZers,

Perhaps you can help.  I used to run a 16 tooth counter sprocket on my SUZUKI DR350, but can now not find one.  I read somewhere that the DRZ 400 takes the same C.S. sprocket and 16T is an option.   Is that the case??  Do you guys run 16T, and if so where do you get them?? 

Thank you.

Can you guys help? When is it time to change shims on a DRZ's valves? Mine has 44000km on the clock. I checked the clearances on the weekend, the inlet clearance is 0.1mm (Should be 0.1mm-0.2mm) and outlet valve clearance is also still in spec.

Thanks
