Hey Guys

Does the DRZ's with FCR carbs use more fuel? I get 20km/l and I do not ride hard.
Am I suppose to get more?

If so, what must I do to get it to normal?

You would guess so, bigger carb more performance but I found very little difference between the Mikuni and Keihin even with the big bore kit, both gave around 26 km/l. Proper jetting is very important.

check out justgastanks.com as well:

AFAIK Sidetrack (I think it was him) had the Clarke but then switched to the Acerbis. Anyone know why?

Ettienne, onthou net dat beide die 2 bikes wat genoem word by die Clarke tank, staal tanks het, nie plastic soos n E model nie.
