Guys, I am a twatwaffle  :lamer:

Personally I blame poor lighting conditions, my butterfingers and Suzuki build quality.

So when I looked into the airbox again (i.e. at the airfilter), I saw the long part of the snorkel coming through into the airbox.

This looked exactly like the snorkel in the picture (which the guy was actually holding upside down  :patch:). Now the old brain finally clicked and I began pushing up from the inside and finally there was some movement and the snorkel assembly popped out to reveal the 3x3 hole  :thumleft:   

That thing was seated so well that from the top on could see no descernable seam.

Anyway, I can now go ahead and order the jetting kit. If the DRZ already pulls so nicely in restricted form, I can only guess how it will pull once unrestricted  :ricky:

On my way there  :thumleft:

Who of you guys have fitted an aftermarket fuel mixture screw for easy fuel mixture adjustment. Most guys apparantly do so when fitting a jet kit as it hels with the subsequent fine tuning given the awkward position of the stock fuel mixture screw (in a recess under the carb bowl)

Been reading up on te Net, but as per usual it raises more questions than provdes  any clear answers. Some requires drilling of the hole in the bowl, some screws does not clear the starter motor, some do not seat properly, some is for the MX FCR carbs and others for the "old" FCR carbs ( which include the "E"),
etc.

I got me a Kientech extended fuel screw for my FCR MX carb. Not sure if it will work for the slant body FCR?

That, my man, is the million dollar question. Some peeps reckon it fits just fine and others reckon it does not clear the starter motor.

If you go to the TT shop they add to the confsion by selling the more crappy extended screws and warning that the Kientech will not fit

No, have not measured it yet. Way i understand is that it is 3x3 and that the guys with the SM and S models normally cut their airboxes to achieve the same result.

Got one from Suzuki Toystore a year ago for my KTM's FCR and it worked just fine. I reckon all FCR's are the same. Fuel screw is a must have.

From my S manual: RK520KZO 112 links

Im sure any 520 chain will work if it is long enough?

Hey guys.

Just put 15T/43T sprockets on my bike.

I noticed that the chain guard doesn't seem to fit with the 15T sprocket. Is there a modification required?

Yes, you must space it out - use some bushes cut to the required length

Nope, by the time you are deep enough for water to reach the top of the airbox, you are pretty much fucked anyways, regardless of the inlet size.

My opinion, of course.

I actually cut a hole through my side cover too for even more flow...

+1.

If you're that deep the water is going to be on the seat and you're in the poop.
