long pull of the Quiksilver carb

I have herd of using xr600 cables and throttle assemblies for the 400 to shorten the long pull of the edelbrock carb. Has any one done this or herd about it? I just got the carb on and the long pull is my only complaint! Thanks for the help.

explain the long pull, i just put the quicksilver II on my bike yesterday and don't have anything that i would consider a long pull. :cry:

I ordered the Edelbrock for my XR4 and am awaiting its delivery. I also ordered the cable housing for the XR650 as recommended by the vendor - I believe to address this exact issue.

thanks for the post, but is the 650 "cable housing" on the carb or are you talking about the throttle assemnly on the handle bar. Do I also need to get the 650 cables as well?

thanks for the help!

Good question. I thought it was the throttle assembly, but on the order confirmation it indicates "XR400 Replacement Cables". I ordered from Barnums. Do a search on the web and/or give them a call.

thanks for the info...I'll give them a call

Changing cables won't change the throttle response. (Unless you have a lot of slack in your set up.)

Changing the geometry of the pullies at either end will though.

      Guy's,  I have an 1997 Honda XR400R and I need to do the front forks.  I'm a big guy 6'4" 375lbs.  So far I haven't been able to find a setup for a big guy. Any suggestions besides losing a lot of weight. :-)

      Went riding on Christmas Eve  everything was working fine went through some mud and slipped dropped my bike tried to kick start it and the kick start went limp pushed it back up got compression again  kicked it over a bunch of times started to run again  rode it for the rest of the ride with no problems then on the way back on the road I gave it fill throttle  and it died hasn't started  since and now has little compression. Replaced the spark plug and changed the oil and filter and adjusted the valves but still very little Compression and won't start.    
      Any ideas??  Would greatly appreciate

      I have a 1986 xr250r, I'm interested in converting the rear drum brake wheel assembly to a rear disc brake system. Has anyone done this, and can you tell me what application parts will get the job done. thanks
