DRZ 470 with FCR 41

76 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I recently acquired this DRZ from a buddy who had recently installed a 470 bore and stroke kit.  Besides the 3x3 air filter and full delkevic exhaust (holy loud) the carb and cams are stock besides jetting (unknown sizes).

 

Me being me, I got into researching the FCR carbs after hearing about them and got my hands in a brand new FCR MX 41 from the netherlands.  It's got TPS and hot start.  I ordered the 3d printed carb adapter for the non removable bell and an OEM drz400e intake boot.

 

I asked the seller about how it's jetted right now and this was his response:

Pilot- 55

Main- 180

Starter- 85

Main air- 200

Pilot air- 100

 

Then this...leak/needle 0,0 / OBDVR @ 5/7

Not sure what that all means.

Could use some direction on where to go with the jetting.  Would like to order any other necessary parts before the carb shows up next week.

Thanks in advance.

So I got my carb in the mail (beautiful) and first thing I try to do is fit this 3D printed adapter over the bell.  OD of the bell is 2.51" and the ID of the adapter is 2.24".  But, look at this picture, it's an MX car but this whole bell seems to be removable with 2 screws.  Is their a part I can buy that's a direct fit?

Ya that bell is removable and can be replaced with the correct one so no adaptor needed .I don't know where to get it but I would think Jets R Us is one place , but don't have the part #. My fcr41 has a 170main IIRC(it cam with a 175, but I went down) , 42 pilot(came with 45 and wouldn't idle worth a crap, flooding out) , and that same obdvr needle with the clip on the very top groove ,going off memory from the last time I messed with it, never wrote the last specs down but I will  when it's off next time for the smaller pilot . The needle I know isn't the perfect one seems too run rich down low and around 1/4 throttle,( I have the EMN needle sitting here) and I can go one down on the pilot since my mixture screw is only .5 out . Need to weld a bung on my new FMF header to hook up the wideband again to fine tune .

 

Yours will be way too rich as it's jetted ,I'd start with my settings and go from there.

thank you for this.  I just looked at jets R us and yes they do sell the intake bells.  If I had the ID of the S boot would make it much easier to order the correct one.

I was reading somewhere about a sudco part and the number being 021-216, can someone confirm this is correct?

That was the PN for the intake adapter I used for my FCR 39 slant with stock SM airboot. It works great.

so the new jets I ordered are 50 pilot and 175 main.  I am going to order that intake bell as per HansLanda from jets r us.  Maybe I should throw in some more jets as per your comments.  Should I go 40 pilot?  Got my cart together with 170 main, 40 pilot, EMN needle, and the 021-216 bell

 

EDIT: ordered a 40 and 45 pilot OEM equivalent.  With my luck 42 will be spot on.

I think you'll be fine with the 40 pilot, my 42 is still too big, but I have plates in my throats so don't know how much it effects sizes .

I'm not to sure I'd buy from him again , he kept raising prices but quality of his refurb definitely went down . Still pissing around trying to get the last KLX to run right , had to buy every jet & needle because his jetting was so far off( even after I had given him the jetting for the first KLX that worked) and that bike is the biggest PITA to work on . He didn't package it up like he should have for shipping and the bell was caved in on one side when it arrived , he was too worried about paying more for shipping a little bigger box.

I am still dicking around with my 470 jetting on my fcr41, I am able to change the main on my mx without taking the carb off so thats not a problem but the pilot is another story, I had to take it off yesterday because I couldn't get the screw out. And getting the carb properly on the backside of the airbox boot is hard for me, not sure why. It always seems to be leaking a little. 

 

Anyways I started at a 48 that it came with, way too rich, bike would die going back to idle sometimes. Went to a 45, fuel screw could still go all the way in. Now down to a 42 and the fuel screw will still turn all the way in a low idle. So it looks like I'm going to a 40 when I get the motivation.

Ya , that's the same here , the screw maybe needs to be just off of being seated but the smaller jet is needed . I think the OB needle tip is thinner/shorter than the "standard" EMN so they need a smaller pilot . How is it running when putting along at a low rpm steady throttle ? A little surging ? That is the area that I think the EMN needle will be better,  at the crossover point .

It's a pain in the dick. Swinging the subframe up is a decent up, or at least sliding the subframe back a little to free up a half inch

If you remove the muffler, loosen the coolant recovery tank and swing the subframe up , the carb is simple to remove and install.

I found it's far easier to remove the airboot from the box and mount to the carburetor 1st, then swing the subframe back down and reattach to box.

I just read this tip about removing it from the box part and then attaching the carb side first on another old thread. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that.

      Howdy,
       
      hopefully someone can drop some knowledge on me.
      Please try to follow as im not much of a writer, im probably going to be all over the place....bear with me. 
       
      I installed a custom "FLOWPRO" fcr mx 39 on a drz400sm :"3x3 & full GPR exhaus, no tps connected"
      WOT it runs and pulls perfectly, as expected. 
      1/8th-1/4 its sputtering like crazy or if im just cruising at a constant speed after a second or two it spudders until i crack it open.
      I had the A/f mixture screw and 2-3 turns out and it was sputtering like crazy anywhere from 1/8th throttle to 1/4th or just cruising at a constant speed. So i turned it all the way in and it ran much better, but its still happening, which leads me to believe it is too rich?
      I ran it without the airbox and it ran better that with it on there but not a significant difference.
      It has a new air filter and sparkplug looks good. It was running perfectly this morning with the mikuni on. 
      Jetting spec:
      Idle jet #40
      Main jet #155
      Main air jet #200
      Idle air jet #75
      Choke jet #75
      Needle ELQ 4th clip from top, "was on third but ran much worse, the guy that built it said to drop it one more clip to see if that helps, It did help a good bit but still not perfect"
       
      other than the spudder at 1/8 throttle and having to have the AF all the way in it runs great. WTF. 
       
      I tried to give as much info as possible, let me know if theres anything i missed.

      I've been struggling to understand what the accelerator pump does in relation to the idle jet and how to tune the squirt, what the squirt actually looked like, etc.  This has made it much clearer for me.  I haven't seen anything like it on here in all my searches or I missed it.  Anyhow I hope it helps someone else.
      The flowchart runs down the steps in an easy to follow way and the video is actually very good.  The guy doesn't jabber on about nonsense and has great shots of the accelerator pump doing it's thing as well as showing what you'll see on it if the adjustment is off and what the leak jet is doing.

      My '05 SM had it's rod bearing go out at 15,000 miles and scored my cylinder so its time for a rebuild. I already have the engine out and cases split, just getting ready to clean and inspect everything and spend lots of money. Bike as of now has 3x3, full Yosh RS3 Off-Road exhaust, and JD jet kit.
      The plan so far is to get:
      Hot Rods Crank Assembly Cylinder Works Big Bore Kit Cam Chain MCCT FCR 39 (hey why not) My main question is if I should replace the engine bearings or not. I feel like I should since I have the engine apart and plan not to have it again for a while, but its around $200 for main, transmission, counter balance, etc. I could not find anything about inspecting bearings aside from feeling smoothness. Is there anything that indicates I should replace bearings? Should they be fine? Or dont risk it and replace all since I had metal running through the oil?
      Let me know what you think along with any recommendations for the build. I plan on skipping out on the stroker to eliminate challenges with compression and reliability and skip out on cams for the sake of $$$.

      OEM suzuki rack and rear rack bag DRZ400 fits S or Sm or E w S or Sm rear subframe.

      Both parts are in very good used condition the bag is real nice it has quick snap buckles to attach and remove quickly.  It has a carry handle to easily take it w you when when the bag is removed.  There is a reflective stripe around the whole bag.  The bag is Expandable w a zipper so it can be up to 4" TALLER Measures 5.5"Hx10"Wx10"D or 9.5x10x10.  I put a gallon of water inside the bag unzipped so you can see the size of the bag, it looks like you could hold a couple two liters in the bag w the gallon when the bag is expanded.

      The rack is the OE suzuki rack in nice shape the paint doesnt have any big gouges and the tool holder isnt ripped or cracked (no tools included)  This rack is a good size w out being to long or wide.  It gives you a solid rear grab point to lift your bike or push if your stuck.   The bag fits the rack perfect.  The rack has all the attaching hardware included.

      Both parts are in nice shape just a little dusty from sitting around.

      $115 plus shipping and paypal fees

      the last pic is not my bag and rack but is the same suzuki bag and rack as mine on a drz400.

      What can I expect as challenges to using the bigger fin cylinder from a ATC200X on a TLR200 Reflex engine. I want the extra cooling from the bigger fins.
      Am I going to have to also use the ATC 200X head and then use the ATC200X ignition parts?  Help me if you have done this by telling me of your experience mating these to a Reflex TLR200.
      Thanks,
