So to clarify; is the carbon gripper............top of seat is gripper and sides are carbon OR the other way around?

Nice catch! So what is the little bottle that is mounted on your frame for?

After installing it I thought what a nicely executed replacement - it looks like a factory part.

So I removed the new plunger and installed the original plunger and spring. I backed out the idle stop and set the mixture screw to 1.5 turns out and it ran nearly perfectly. After a good warmup ride I tweaked the settings and all is well again.

I'm just wondering if anyone has had issues with the choke conversion or did I just get the wrong part, maybe for a different carb? I still commend Procycle for a nicely finished part and their excellent shipping practices but maybe they should check the current batch to see if they all have the wrong plunger.
Very interesting

I've just installed the same Procycle choke cable setup on my FCR when I installed the FCR 2 weeks ago. While the bike runs sweet throughout the rev range I can't get it to idle at all. I've tried all sorts of combinations of Idle mixture and speed settings to no avail.

I'd been thinking maybe I set something in the carb up wrong as I installed the needle/jets etc myself but maybe it's my cable.

I hate to ask an ignorant question, but as I look on the Procycle site, Isn't that particular mod only available for the stock or TM 40 carb?

Remote Choke Cable Kit

DR650SE '96-'12




Choose Type:


$32.95


Hate the handlebar mounted choke lever? Can't reach the choke knob? Does your Safari or IMS tank make using the choke difficult?
We now have a cable operated choke knob that mounts to the left side engine case. You can choose a remote choke for either the stock BST carburetor or for the Mikuni TM40.

To be honest I don't recall which carb I bought it for and what was available at the time as I've had it for quite a while. When I fitted it however it looked like the stock cable had a different sized thread than what the FCR would accept

The FCR plunger also has no spike.

Strange, I've heard nothing but good things about the DJ kit + airbox mod. I ended up doing it with the GSXR 1000 can and it works great.

Not to harp on about this but how slippery is the all carbon seat cover from SC! I'm getting conflicting reports: some say its good some say they move around too much and can nearly fall off - WTF.

Need to adjust carb?

Last fall I bought a 2000 with the loud FMF pipe, open airbox, and pumper carb. I have since scrounged up a stock muffler. I am wondering what bad thing will happpen if I close up the air box, install the stock muffler, but do not change the carb?

Fcr carb will not run right with closed airbox or even an airbox with just snorkel removed. It doesn't get enough air at higher rpm and the fuel mixture richens out. Can't get the jetting right without an open airbox.

Anyone have any rear stock shock parts sitting around? Specifically looking for the rubber bumper, mine disintegrated and I need to replace it...I know alot of people replace their stock units, so maybe someone has this part sitting around and maybe wants a few bucks in exchange?

I don't have experience with the SC carbon but my son's Corbin is slippery. I bought just the all carbon cover from SC to possibly change out the gripper but decided not to. I laid it on the existing seat and didn't like the amount of movement.

Personal preference of course.
