FCR JETTING. Almost there!

Recommended Posts

So I got the tt kit installed with no major issues. I followed the carb setup instructions and the bike started up no problem idles perfectly at 1 1/4 turns out on extended mixture screw. The bike accelerates smoothly at idle through about 3/4 throttle but bogs until it gets a bit higher in the revs and pops alot on decel. So I removed the airbox cover and it seemed a little better. I also tried taping the 3x3 hole a bit but that caused some popping during acceleration. So I am assuming I should change out the 160 main for a 155. Does this sound about right? FYI I am running a standard MRD full exhaust, 3x3 hole, and the rest is stock. I am a complete carb noob so if anybody has suggestions feel free.

I'm at 2 turns out on the fuel screw. 160 main. full fmf system. hotcams intake and exhaust. and all the other adjustments have been made per TT suggestions. I also am running rich. I am going to try a 155 main. if to lean ill try a 158. someone may have an exact answer for you, but sometimes trial and error work very well:thumbsup:

Lol You seem to be helping me in another thread that kind of turned into the same question I'll just keep asking here. What your saying about the ap screw would make alot of sense, at low rpm the squirt must be too long and causing a bog but at higher Rpms the motor has enough air moving so it's not an issue. I will try this once I get home and post back the results. Thanks

Ok I tried turning in the ap screw 1/2 turn and a full turn . No noticeable difference. Even if I roll on the throttle slowly it bogs pretty bad until about 5000 rpm then pulls very strong. Also this only happens at 3/4 to wot, everywhere else it seems perfect. Please help!

now go a full turn out past the original point. if that doesnt make a difference you need to visually confirm the pump is actually squirting.

Ok so I went out past original, the bog got worse so I turned it 2 turns in from original and the bog is almost completely gone. :thumbsup: however the spring on the ap screw is almost bottomed out. Is there a gap that I should be close to or should I turn it until it runs right? Also I removed the carb to modify the choke handle and did confirm that it's squirting fuel.

      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 ?
