The Z400 is finally on all fours again. This project has taken over a month to finish, but it was well worth it. I took some pictures today for my first ride, and I figured everyone would like to see them. The trophies weren't won with my Z400, but instead with my old 400EX. The Z is set for its first race on August 25th in Van Etton, NY. Then on to the GNCC Series in Ohio. Comments and questions welcome.

I like to Thank my Sponsors.

The Engine plans are to increase the compression to over 12:1. I have the base gasket already, but I am waiting on the Head gasket from the DRZ400E. I plan on replacing the cams and experimenting with the lectron, edelbrock, and FCR carbs. I can't wait to get ride of my stock carb. I am currently using the HMF slip on, and it is feels really good down low, but I still want more POWER!

Atv Addiction stocks the slip on, but I will eventually be getting a complete system when all my other engine mods are done.


Also, I forgot to mention two other great sponsors and riding areas.
Rausch Creek, in Central PA
Breezewood Proving grounds, in South Central PA

wow that is a kick ass Z! Nicest one by far. How does it handle with all that? Must be nice to have the money/sponsors to do that! Looks great! Tell us how you do at the track. What is the track called that you are racing at on the 25? You actually travel across the country and race?

The swingarm is 1.25" longer than stock, and it took away the wheeling tendancy of the Z. Now it keeps the power to the ground for improved handling. The track is in Van Etton, NY and it is called "Dream Riders." it is part of the WNYOA series, but the track is a very excited yet difficult track. Last year I took second place, but I wrecked 3 times in the first lap. My new fenders that day didn't look new anymore at the end of the race. It is very tight in sections and wide open in others, but one of the best tracks I have raced for enjoyment.

Thats what I want exactly for my Z, I don't think he has the time to make them for us though. I sure wish he did, it would look so awesome on my Z, my goal is to make it black and yellow with a slight bit of chrome into the mix.

The clutch cover is produced by Burgard Cycle. It is done by modifying the OEM side case to accept a clutch cover. It is great for changing the clutch especially since the Z is water cooled. Otherwise you will have to drain the water and oil to do it properly and then qet the old razor blade out the clean off the old gasket material. Over 1 hour later you are ready to remove the plates & fibers.

I just loosen 6 allen bolts and remove cover and oil & 3 minutes later I am ready to change the clutch.

The cover is available for $350 with your old side cover.
