Yes, I was also contemplating it. In fact there was no factory ETA for the airbox part on the order and I was surprised that it turned up. If it did not I would have gone the pod route as this bike will only be used on road.

Must do a bit of reading on opening the airbox - do they drill bigger holes in it?

I have the standard jetting - maybe one would need the larger jets of the 510 (e.g. 180 vs 172) for this too work?

One thing about the SM - due to the nature of the beast and the way I ride it the fuel consumption is dismal. If I remember correctly the last time I checked I filled the tank and hit reserve 88km's later @ around 9km/l. That is just slightly better than my V6 bakkie ;D
Can't be right, I once managed 26km/l with my TE and that was with knobbles and offroad low gearing, same carb as yours  ???
On average I got around 20 -22km/l.
Might be very dependant on size of the rider and throttle usage
You are small in comparison to kykdaar and hardly rode your's hard.

Yea but 9km/l is not normal, Kykdaar I reckon you have a 250 main jet in there  >:D

Ja, I ran out of fuel when I went riding with Blazes and Dakota because it caught me out to.

Have stripped and cleaned the carb again today whilst busy with the rest of the bike. When I go riding next time I will keep an accurate recor and see if I was mistaken.

One thing though - with that bike it is nearly full throttle all the way, so I do not expect great fuel consumption.

So I had occasion to put some fuel in the bike today after filling it a few days ago when I remembered to zero the trip meter.

It did 55.5km on 4.31 lites. That equates to 12.81km/l or 7.80l/100km (if my math is correct)

On the 12 litre fuel tank that gives me a range of 153km's.

So if you buy a SM, good fuel consumption should not be on your list :biggrin:

So this weekend I spent fooling around with carbs - the SM included. A further reason of wanting to open up the FCR-MX 41was to try and find out why my consumption is so awful.

Started by taking a look at the squirt coming from the Accelarator Pum (AP) when you yank open the throttle. The idea, I believe is that is squirts a little bit of raw fuel for the engine to chew on whilst the revs can catch up.

On my bike the AP squirts a stream of fuel about 1.5 meters far for about 3 seconds :o Think I have found out where all my fuel is going. The AP actuator setting looked normal so I had a look at the bleed jet. The jet was blocked off which meant it did not bleed any fuel from the pump hence the cannon shots of fuel. I swapped it out with a size 60 bleed jet to restore some normality.

Next up was the rather rich size 50 pilot. Bike was battling to idle evenly with the fuel screw 2 turns out so I substituted it with a size 40 pilot. Will result in a little popoing on decel, but a small prize to pay for a better running and idling bike.

I retained the stock DVR needle but lifted it from 2nd to 5th clip position counting from the top.

Finally I swopped the standard 172 main jet for a 180 to wake up the top end a bit.

Bike pulls like a freight train through the entire throttle range without hesitation or bogging.

My SM610 did a constant 18km/l and I was usually going everywhere at 145-150kph.

Was vir so n rukkie in die dogbox, maar ma weet my koppie raas.

Sal my net vir so n rukkie mooi moet gedra.

I must admit - the thought crossed my mind. Didnt some dude recently finish Amageza on a converted SM?

Maybe, will not rule it out.

So today I spent prepping the bike. Added rear indicators and wired them up, got the plate on and did what felt like another 101 little things. Finally I spent a few hours cleaning it up.

Not my favourite colour scheme, but it is looking a hell of a lot better than yesterday

Cant wait to get rid of this horrid red/pink colour scheme.

White hubs near a chain isnt the most practica choice either.Black and gold coming up ;)

Also horribly short geared 13/43 - going to take it back to stock 15/45

Today I went to work on the bike and put it through roadworthy.

Got home this afternoon and stripped it down to its frame on wheels with engine still in.

Enjoyable exercise apart from the normal story of butchered parts, stripped or cross-threaded bolts, sloppy previous work, etc.

Going to rebuild this one to my standard and looking forward to it.

Thanks :thumleft:

The problem with red anodising is that it fades over time and ends up an eyesore.

The current look is a bit too extravagant for me. Want to tone it down a bit and give it a more subtle and classy look.

It already has some gold parts (suspension, brakes, etc), so I will add a black frame, gold anodised rims, black anodised hubs, carbon fibre shrouds and covers, black and gold x-ring chain, gold sprocket, ceramic coated headers, and a few small touches of chrome.
