FCR 41mm on XR650R

Had a KTM 525sx die on me. Carb is new Generation III FCR 41mm that was just massaged by KTM engine guru.

I am thinking about putting it on an XR650R. Saw a Sudco Kit for $750? but can't figure out what would be in that kit to make it cost so much.

I haven't calipered the air boots, but they look close enough to make it work.

Yes on the rejet. Just wondering if there is anything else that would keep it from working as a bolt-on?

Pretty sure you just need an airbox adapter ("Noss" racing sells them for $65) and you need to modify your gas tank to clear the top of the carb.

What jets are in it now?

I found a K&N tubular filter that will work. Remove airbox completely.

This bike is sumo only. I will look for the Noss racing adapter.

The SUDCO kit won't work. It has to be a different FCR model.

Thanks for the heads up on the gas tank mod.
