FCR39 Slant No AP squirt. 400exc

Recommended Posts

So I got this 400exc not running and then rebuilt the carb. She started right up but has a serious bog. After chasing the bog with a few more carb cleanings I noticed that my AP wasn't squirting. I bought a new AP diaphragm and O/U rings. So after putting them on I now have a squirt BUT only when I move the lever up and down with my finger. I can't get enough movement using the throttle to cause a squirt. The throttle linkage and AP lever separate after the throttle is turned. I am only getting about 1/16" of movement with AP lever. How can I adjust this so that my throttle moves the AP lever more?

you need to tie the levers together, a common upgrade on a bike with an AP. The newer bikes use a o-ring and the older ones used a pinch the metal tabs together method. It is a carb 101 basic.
