I'll keep posting away so that the modifications can be seen. CW is on top of his game for sure. If anyone else is looking for some mod's, he can sure handle the task!
I have a custom frame on my dirt tracker, I don't think it's worth the coin unless you plan on road racing or oval track , SM.
A little flex is good in the whoop de doos..

The Mikuni performs just as good or maybe better on the top.
I like the FCR's build quality for sure, probably the best carb out there.
The FCR's are still on back order for the L..

My favourite bike was my Dominator (NX650), so an XRL is on the cards for when I move to the US at the end of the summer

FCR Carb

Try these guys for the FCR carb. I'm pretty sure Sudco is the importer but these folks might have one in stock:

Thanks I'll give them a call.

We sent the cylinder off to U.S. Chrome to get their NiCom plating done to it for less friction and a longer lasting bore..we also coated the piston skirts.

I had the factory FCR on my dual sported KLX400R. I loved the throttle response and jetting wasn't too fussy. I don't have much elevation change when I ride. However, paying $550 to put one on my 650L is too much for my budget. Is there a MX version that is easily convertable?

Stu, aren't you worried about fuel mileage? The squirt took mine down more than the compression of the big bore.

Wow wattner, nice bike! When I was on leave I test-rode a 650L but ended up with a Honda Hornet 919. I do want to get one someday, though, or maybe an ATK... and I think I'll be building it up like yours. Maybe when I get that 750 turbo running and riding I'll sell the 9'er and start in on something like this.

Beautiful bike!

Thanks, it will be FUN!!!!! If we end up meeting after the build, I'll bring both of the "L"s and we can go twist throttles!

The ATK 605 is a great platform... Let Ron Woods sprinkle some of his magic and they really come to life. The Rotax motor is about as bulleptroof as they come!

Brian,

Yes, of course I want the best mileage possible and that's why I'm staying with the stocker. I'll do the "Dave's Mods" one of these days and that will help some. I also need to save for a top-end job cuz mine is using a lot of oil.

BTW, how much did you shorten your USD forks when you put them on? I think you told me once but I've forgetten. Thanks BP.

Sorry for the hijack Wattner.

It's all good!!! Can't you dial the squirt down a bit and use it when you really need the oomph? Roll on steady and slow will keep the accelerator pump from squirting too much

I have never really cared about fuel mileage, but I will start to look at it now, just to keep tabs on changes and how they affect things
