Recommended Posts

If it goes cheap it might be a good deal, but it is the older slant style FCR.

It may or may not end up being a good deal, always a gamble, unless you personally know the previous owner.

But, just remember that about 99% of the real problem FCR's are bought second-hand.

Yes there are a few people that have had minor problems with new FCR-MX's, but they are in the minority.

All bikes are different, and all owners have different expectations of the carb, many of these expectations are wildly optimistic.

If you can afford a new carb, then go that route even if you have to wait a few months, is the best advice I can give.

But whatever you do, don't lose patience and buy an Edelbrock like I did, you will end up spending even more money on the FCR at a later date, just like I did :ride::rant:

Think about it. An FCR is a 'state of the art' carb for bikes. Why would someone sell it? 99% of the time is because it was abused and in crappy condition. Truly buyer beware.
