DR 650 FCR carb convertion
« Reply #20 on: August 22, 2015, 07:36:45 pm »
There is hardly any info on the net, for installing the slanted one on the DR.

I am busy parting a DRZ, and had the slanted body.

Considered fitting it, therefore my extensive research (search).

Apparently 95% as effective as the MX.

Sounds as if many of the features of the FCR are on the outside of the carb body with the slanted one, and inside on the MX.

On gravel, the increased power only results in wheel spin. I do mostly off-road and get only 2500 kms on a D606. I ride civilised on tar.

For the DR's conversion, there was a comment regarding a clearance issue with the starter.

I can not comment regarding a performance comparison, except the 95% as effective as the MX, whatever that means!

Sidetrack. You have plans?

Re-fitted the SM's carb today.

Played around with the float hight setting as well.

Found the easiest way go do it was to remove the bowl, blow into the fuel inlet pipe and then tilt the carb to see when the needle opens and when it closes. This makes it  ery easy to set the float hight at the level that you want.

Another way, of course, is to make use of a clear plastic tube, open the drain screw and check the level of the fuel in the carb that way.

Just dont be an idiot like me and forget to properly tighten the drain screw.

Die truuk is natuurlik dat n ou die drain skroef moet oopmaak sodat die petrol in die tube inloop en dan nog petrol in die fuel inlet moet ingooi todat die float styg en die needle toedruk. Nou eers kan n ou sien hoe hoog die maks float level in die carb is.

Mens wil graag die vlak he naby die float bowl se edge, maar nie meer nie.

Well done!

Just stumbled on this thread now.  The body gaskets are available from motocomp in Natal tel 073 750 9697.  I bought a set for my WR, but haven't had to fit it yet as Dux fixed it with a glue.

they only stock one for the MX FCR, not the slant body.
