  1. As simple as dremeling out a hole big enough to fit in the 90 degree bend?
  2. My first post was kind of a lead up to this. I have an FCR 39 and I know the Keihin on the E is similar, so I'm wondering if I should replace my old and beat outlet with the E or S/SM model?
  3. Tada!! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HNSB3DrqJqHTInjVDKKS4HNSHZPbdK0ElbfNI5HxuZg/edit?usp=drivesdk
  4. Literally no difference? Yeah that sounds about right for Suzuki.
  5. Thumpertalk OEM shows three different airbox outlets going into the carb for the E model, what's the difference? Is it for the different carbs the bike came with on the E? Here's the three I found: 13881-29F20 13881-29F00 13881-29FB0
  6. I just went through this whole debate and would suggest against emulators. You lose out on low-speed damping. Lots of money to drop on old tech forks. I ended up getting newer (2008) S forks I found on eBay for near nothing and swapping them out with my 2001 S forks. Didn't change out the rear shock with a newer one but had both revalved and resprung by a professional tuner. Night and day difference. I could not recommend it more. The bike is so steady and is easy to flick through canyons or track days. It feels like it's on rails and instantly gives you more confidence on lean.
  7. Thanks brah
  8. Anyone with an SM can you measure the distance between the two screw holes at the bottom of the fork casting where the fork guard bolts in? In CM preferably. Thanks in advance!
  9. Could you elaborate more?
  10. Not sure about Rafael but I was lean before and had the same issues. I went as dead on as I think I can get it, maybe a bit on the rich side, and still the same hot start issue. Mech confirmed my jetting should be good but he did minor tweaks and still same thing.
  11. My S model is in the shop for the same thing right now. Valves were in spec, but hot starts are still bad. Cold start is perfect. Auto decomp might be the issue. Check your pin in the intake cam Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using ThumperTalk mobile app
  12. Did you end up finding out the issue?
  13. Interesting, in all my research I haven't seen that, thanks! With Gary's experience below, I think that's a much better (read less expensive) alternative to an SM fork conversion or buying newer forks. I appreciate the personal experience and offer, I'lll take you up on it when I do the kit as well. Question. Have you felt or experienced a difference in forks with the kit and cartridge type forks? That was something I read as well, 03 and up have different rear shocks. Might make me more inclined to do the swap then.
  14. Agreed on both your posts. I have on 01 S model. Revalve and spring will be done, oil and valves on the front too, I was just led to believe that an MX shock (of course an Ohlins) would allow for more adjustability.
  15. Travel is part of my reasoning too. Table tops/big whoops in the dirt sections of tracks make me bottom out like crazy. Plus with how heavy the bike it, the ability to have more travel while having better sag for traction is attractive to me. Am I wrong in assuming that?
