Wildcoast has a very modern carb .....dude, check how many holes in the slide, One or Two ???

Even my KTM manual doesn't know an 18-series .....

Anyway, don't panic, give us your engine number and frame number to look at. PM me if uncomfortable.

Okay, will do just a sec, main jet was a 140, removed that and pushed down, nothing budged, so left it all with wd40 soaking overnight

3 holes in slide one large in centre smaller ones either side

OK, two "lift holes" in slide ....  period correct slide ....the post 96 has a single lift hole.

That nozzle might need a little gentle gentle gentle tap with a pursuading tool, add some warmth too.

It's meant to be a snug fit but it should NOT require donnering ! : )

Is your idle screw plugged you think ?

From what I can gather your bike is a 1993 DR650RSE with a full-power engine , definitely year code "P" for 1993

The "A" in SP43A means it's for the "world " market and not restricted. Yay.

Your motor code 'P405'  predates mine which is P407, and mine rolled off the plant in 1994 for sure.

Your engine is SP43 and mine is SP45 which also confirms the period as 1993. Looks like a 'matching numbers' bike.

At least we now know which blerrie manual and fiche to look in !!!

Hope this helps ? It's confusing, whats posted and what you can learn ... it's long road to drill down.

I forgot ! I scribbled a whole page or two searching the web last year ,  so I have a A4 full of pencil scrawls with notes explaining some of the notations , in the file of this bike.

It took a while and got very confusing.

I don't know those sites any more man, maybe Thumpertalk , AdvRider, Suzukicycles.org , anything that Google and a bit of patience will yield, then there is also the workshop manuals , suppliers like DennisKirk, Ron Ayers, Alphasports, Bikebandit, CMS, shit man, you're just as likely to find it as I am, if not more so. My idea of Tech savvy is to use Dogpile instead of Google ! This laptop is Celeron powered dude !

You want a deep web search, you need to be born in 2000 not 1962 , to know that stuff !

Did you check your float height by the way, itching to know what it was .... there be demons I tell yah !

Have left carb for now, still trying to find if I have a freak variant of a BST40 and research the bloody thing online, looks like a BST40 but certainly different

After browsing DRRIDERS forum I came across a similar incident that I had, no needle valve in a post 96's carb.
Some BST's have the needle valve mounted in the float, no reason to panic....-shew-

Well my carb is fucked!!!!! In trying to get the slide guide out the needle jet, that was tacked to the guide, has broken free and is now wedged in its tunnel, so looks like I need a new carb, cause i'll prob have to drill it out!!!!  >:(

Had to resort to knocking needle jet out with a punch, think I need a new carb, anyone????

Tough luck WC, shit happens huh. Sorry man. Search earlier in this thread someone offered me a carb and we exchanged dealer price info, somewhere in the  R3k region ? I'd take that deal in a flash.

I searched the web last night for any model data on the "Slingshot" carb. The only thing I learned was that those string things hot Brazilian babes wear are called Slingshot's too.

Tell me, if your bike has French origins , does it have a metric dash ? I wouldn't mind a metric oldtimer dash , maybe I could offset that carb cost a little ? Assume you are going Vapour , right ?

Okay new carb sorted from THEOTHERGUY, thanks for the response, would rather have something thats more stock and newer anyway, easier to get parts etc.

Right Veemax, that dash is in KM, but shaped for a fairing, I'll post pics in about 5min
