DRZ400sm FCR HELP!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remove all Advertisements

Hi guys, first time poster, long time reader.... In desperate need of help.

I just bought a second hand FCR carb for my DRZ400sm and managed to fit it along with new RS2 and 3x3 only to find that it wont idle unless the choke is on. Any suggestions what the problem may be?

I had them install the jetting as per the TT store ones, removed the pilot air jet....

I also have fuel leaking from (i think) around the fuel intake barb. Is there something in there that needs replacing or fixing?

Im quite peeved with the guy who sold it to me actually as he said it would come with everything i needed for install. Well the air box adapter was too small, didnt come with a front side adapter meaning i had to stetch the old one... Not happy.

If using a vacuum operated fuel petcock like the OEM one found on the SM, you will need to install a vacuum nipple in the manifold....It is P/N 13685-29F00 OEM Suzuki Vacuum Port Nipple..or you can run it on prime and have no reserve..

jay- what is the source of your FCR carb? Much of the "tuning" advise is unique to the specific carb. The "no air jet" is specific to the aftermarket FCR MX sold by the TT store.

Just a guess - you need a 100 pilot air jet and 45 pilot fuel jet.

FCR's come in lots of configurations so its source is important to knowing what you need for adapters.

Done the air nipple.

Im not sure what the carb came off.

Do you think the PAJ may be the problem?

Pic of what? The carb? Any particular side?

It had red breather hoses on it if that helps identify it.

Ok. But it won't be for a while. I'm at work and I was hoping to have a plan of attack for when I get home. Hopefully someone will still be around to help me in about 6 hours

In that case you need to specify exactly what side/ angle pic you require or what I send will look exactly the same bar the differences I already mentioned.

Sorry to be a pest but I have limited time to get this sorted out before I need to ride the bike to work. Im at work now and need this thing running by bed tonight so I'll have 6 or so hours in 2 hours time.

OK. If that is true representation, you have an FRC MX with air cut off valve (other wise known as coast enrichener CE) That is rather unusual and the advise for jetting needs to be specific to that carb. At least put the pilot air jet back in that was taken out. Right now you have way too much air to the pilot circuit - no jet plus the CE.

Still need an actual picture of your carb and if possible what it came off of originally. Probably a street legal something.

List what jetting , needle and clip pos they installed ..and your approx.altitude?

The problems you have are typical of buying used carbs from an unknown seller...

For anyone contemplating upgrading their intake,the full conversion kit from the TT store or Eddie is a smarter option...

You joking. More time spent not getting this solved.

I pit the paj back in and it made an improvement but it still won't idle properly

      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 ?
