i've got a MCS procircuit quick action throttle sitting here and i'm wondering if anyone can think of a reason not to run it.
it's a single cable rig, the cheap plastic style MX one and i'm hoping it will work well.
i can buy one of the 15% quicker tubes from procycle but this is only $30 and i have it already instead of $60+shipped from the states to Australia.

Thoughts?

The DR horn is now working again, albeit sounding more roadunnerish than before.

The problem seemed when I move the horn with the original Safari tank install, it didn't like its new postilion and in fact, as Jeff at Procycle suggested, had to re tune it! It will suffice until I can get one from the wreckers.

Getting the Safari tank back on was the marathon of the day. The alignment with the brackets seems to change every time I take it off and back on again. I seem to be coming up with new techniques to get the bloody thing back on.

I may start a "how to put the safari tank back on hints and tips thread page"..............is there one out there already.

anyway, thanks for all the feedback (again)

I found mounting and remounting my Safari tank a challenge also. Increasing the hole size and elongating in the bottom mount brace made the job easy.

When I remove my Safari I also remove the front brace and bolt it to the tank while it is off the bike.

So, does anyone here have a 790 or 780 kit installed?

I'll probably do the TM40 carb before I do anything that major to my engine. Since it's my daily driver, I can't really afford to ship half my engine out of state to be bored out and resleeved....yet

Just lever it forward with a ring spanner using the lip of the steel bracket that is right below the rear of the tank.
Think about putting a turn of rubber strip around the portion of front stabilizer bracket that will rub on the cylinder head top fin.
Also rubber tube can be put over each tang that locates it around the frame down tube.
Look at the routing of the fuel lines so they do not rub on anything in the area of the carburetor.
Consider splitting a length of rubber hose so it fits over the fuel line that is over the exhaust header as a barrier.
Keep an eye on the area around the right hand rear mount hole on the tank itself.
Consider new fuel taps if it has one of those $hitty plastic ones they used to fit.

Why is that Jeff, so the tank doesn't distort too much. I did notice this time I've taken the tank off compared to others times is I had quite a bit of fuel in it - around 3/4 full. May this is why it was a struggle??

thanks though

great visuals!

how is it people say the ktm needle works better than an oem needle shimmed? i have 2 washers under an oem needle and was thinking about a ktm needle. i see a wider ktm needle and that means less gas at the oem needle assuming the same resting position.

even the fp needle is wider. the only advantage those 2 have is clip adjust-ability but washers under the factory needle work just fine to raise the needle and thus more gas...plus the factory needle is thinner as lets more gas through. i see it being the best oem shape option. plus the fp & ktm needle are longer and sit deeper in the carb, less gas, than oem.


am i missing something here???
