    ... and still another jetting question

    Thanks to all... put on high clearance choke assembly and it worked perfectly! I have completely destroyed my fuel economy but the smile points were worth it. I just have a quick question... I was riding up to 5,400' and the bike was sputtering at the top end of 4th gear? Should I just drain the float bowl and add a little carb cleaner? I was also running some 100 octane fuel in it, was that the source?

    FCR39 Slant revving up

    No worries, my bad ... I just know how much work went into installing my new FCR and how much I had to tweak it !!!

    FCR39 Slant revving up

    Your throttle cables are getting compressed and impacting idle !!! Tweak your carb to alleviate the high idle!!!

    Slow getting back down to idle

    Is it possible that the throttle cables are hanging up on something if the carb got dislodged during your rebuild ?

    Raptor Fuel Cock Assy

    Thank you... my apologies... let me rephrase... based on the existing petcock you see above and the vacuum port circled in red. My question is, to my knowledge this is the OEM DRZ400SM petcock that I have on my motorcycle now? I just installed an FCR39 carb and have a clearance issue with the choke and vacuum port. I looked at PP`s pictures and my petcock looks nothing like the ones pictured, can you verify based on what you see is this an OEM 2008 DRZ400SM petcock or some other bastarization that i need to deal with. Thanks again for your help ...!!!

    I've looked at everyone's pics and I'm wondering why mine looks so different on the vacuum outlet...???

    ... and still another jetting question

    So, considering this is my thread I can hijack it back if I want. So, again considering this is an SM, California model so it has stock metal tank and it has stock vacuum petcock... Now that I spent hours getting that huge f@#king carburetor thing in that little space and tweaked it enough to get the throttle wheel moving cleanly with no binding... how come the f@#king choke won't clear the petcock ...!!! Somehow did I not get the memo that it had to have a high clearance choke assy...??? ... or am I really that stupid ???

    ... and that's what I'm afraid of is being good enough to know... but I put the 42 in and hopefully have some time this week to install it !!!

    ... and still another jetting question

    Yes, makes logical sense. I know nobody can be 100%... i just keep kicking myself for putting in the 42 then taking it back out again !!!

    ... and still another jetting question

    Please be serious with me ... I appreciate everyone's help... I've already had the 42 pilot in then second guessed myself and put the 45 back in. If you're 99.2 percent sure I'll put the 42 back in !!! I usually ride at 725-5,000 ft !!!

    ... and still another jetting question

    Okay... I looked at the spreadsheet until I went blind (remember, I didn't even know what a main jet was a month ago) and I started with 160 main, 45 pilot, EMN with 3rd clip and I installed extended fuel screw and I left it at 1 1/2 turns. Now for the fun part, I get to install it in my SM ... GOOD TIMES !!!­čśë
