Anyone tried a FCR40 on a BigBore?

Just wondering.

FCR39 seem perfect, 41 seems too big.

But bigger is better right :thumbsup:

Yosh used a 40mm carb on their 450.

Try it out, track your dyno runs and jetting changes, and let us know how it works out ( I doubt Yoshimura has done any R & D on a DRZ platform in many years.. Nothing they have to say about the DRZ is current)

The guy with the experience and dyno in his shop says the 41 FCR is a better fit for the built motors... I don't have a dyno,,,, I have not done the R & D, I'll take his word on it.

i was using a 41fcrmx on my 440 BB.it worked fine.my BB was also had all the other goodies to make it go fast.i did do a dyno run to see the difference in power and the 39 was the beter carb to use with the BB but the 41 did make more power on top.

I'm thinking of trying the dyno comparo fcr39 vs fcr40

BigBore, Yosh Ti, Hotcams.

Eddie, others, do you think it will make a nice difference or am i just going nuts?

I have a 41 on my BB. MRD/SSW, Hotcams...

Works well. You do lose a little on the bottom and gain a little on top.

I bought the 41 because the plan was to stroke it anyway...

it will make more power (actual gain unsure,thats what the dyno is for) assuming you have the intake bell set up correctly.

You remembered my homebrew intake bell!

incredible. from all the people on here, tens of thousands of posts.

Thanks for the input.

I'll post any results here.

With pre- and post dyno that is.

i'm hoping for this logic

400cc - 39mm works great, good low mid top end.

435cc - 40mm ??

470cc - 41mm great gains, see tale of 60hp thread, but weak low end for 435.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
