Any FlowCommander Hold Outs Left?

I need to confess my sins.

And I'm too embarrassed to go solo :bonk:

will your bike at idle react to the pilot air jet screw adjustment like it does with the fuel screw?

Not after the install of the FCR41.

After seeing your dyno run with air/fuel ratio, I went out and drilled 5/16 holes through the metering galleries of the FC. Then ground down the tips of the adjustment screws, rendering the FC useless, and installed the proper air jets

Had to rejet to a 48 pilot, 1 5/8 out on the fuel screw :excuseme:

Increased the main to 175 :excuseme:

And picked up about 5 mph on the top end :busted:

Kinda... like ... you said it should be :thumbsup:

So if you have one, or are thinking of buying one.... don't

O well :banghead: It makes a pretty blue bling bling $$$ carb adapter.

thats what i figured.

Did It ( FC ) make a difference between the 39mm to the 41mm? IE: Did it work for the 39?

On the 39, the idle mixture adjust helped when changing the exhaust back and forth, or with large changes in elevation. Stock exhaust off road and yosh ti in sm mode.

On the 41, I couldn't get the pilot small enough.#42 was still rich, and the main jet had no "feel". #162 to #182 no change in response or top end.

If you compare the metering holes in the FC, they're not much bigger than the air jets you use. I was really surprised it took such a dump on the 41. I'd been trying to blame the carb.

The idle air adjust is a sound idea, but to make it work, with accuracy :excuseme:

If a guy was to pickup a DR Z with this Flo Commander installed already is this a fairly low cost deal to render useless? Does previous installation of this useless item cause any damage to the FCR carb that cant be remedied with a few jets and what not? Old thread I know but that is what the search function is for! The guy doesnt know if its a 39mm or a 41mm either if that matters.

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
       
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
