I have no idea what using the TRX450R to put the FCR 40 on the L means but your headline says Noss adapter so I'm guessing you're asking if the Noss adapter is necessary. Answer, no. But it does make things a little easier in my opinion, it is necessary to lengthen the carb and that's what the adapter does and it corrects a slight offset between the carb and air boot going to the airbox. If you do decide to get one you can assemble it with silicon and not the recommended jb weld or epoxy. Remember to mark the air jets location on the outside of the adapter and carb so when you put the two together you get the holes to line up. HTH

I only see an adaptor listed for a TRX450 install on there web site, but have seen post listing the 'noss adaptor" as an easy way to get the carb to fit, so maybe the question should have been which noss adaptor are people useing on the 650L. My email to them has gone unanswered.

I got the phone number off their website and called them with the same question. Told them I have a 650L and FCR-MX, the guy I talked to, which was the owner, said get the ATV adapter, I'm guessing the TRX450. You should call to verify of course. Glad to hear another L gets a pumper! big difference.

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks

      Hello all,
      There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
      I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?

      Hoping for some help before I throw in the towel and end it all!
      Engine starts fine, runs and idles well for +/- 10 minutes, but cuts out while riding once the engine warms up (175 - 185) and intermittently cuts out thereafter (any speed/gear). It will start up after 30 seconds or so (but won't run for long before dying again). No spurting or surging.. just dies.
      I've replaced CDI (twice), Spark plug, spark wire and coil, and most recently pulse generator. I do have a 41mm Flat side carb from a CRF (and it has more power than the old carb setup), breathing through a Uni filter. Also, sealed battery tender battery (hasn't shown low when trickle charged).
      What's next on the test/replace list? Stator maybe? Please help...
