Fcr o ring video

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a used fcrmx carb on ebay. I know not the smartest of moves, but it was one of those moments of weakness at 4am after working a 12 midnight shift.

I installed the carb, in the prim. position the carb constantly overflows, in the "on" position it will only overflow when the bike is idleing on the kick stand. I removed the carb and removed the needle seat to find the o ring very dry and it is flate. See included video

should this o ring be round. Is it possible to pick one up from a hardware store if so what size is it.Or is it just a matter of trial and error to see what will fit. Could this have been the source of my problem. What should the float height set at.

In the second video is the carb I was told it is a fcrmx 39

Can anyone confirm this from the video.

Last and final question the vent line are old, what size are they I want to replace them.

Sorry for the lame videos...I shot them with my ipod and it easier to post to utube video than it is to post picks.

thanks for the help.

The carb looks like a FCR-MX 39mm. Did the seller say what type of bike it came off of?

The hoses are 1/4" diameter I think?

Doubt you'll find the oring at a hardware store. Cyclewearables has it.

Yes, that is a FCR-MX, I hope the intake bell is the right one, else you'll need to order it too. Might want to note what jetting is in it and be sure to have a 155, 158 and a 160 main jet on hand the EMN needle and a brand new #45 pilot along with a non-alloy fuel screw.

Does the carb have a leak jet? If so, you will want to remove it, solder it cloeds and reinstall it.

Seller said he had the carb on a Drz s. Thanks for the help. I just bought 1/8 hose. Back to Canadian tire I go for 1/4. That's inside diameter I assume.

I just checked my float bowl. And the leak jet opening look like it has been cast over at the factory.(no opening). I bought 1/4 tube as suggested and it is way too big for the vent lines.

      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 ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
