Yes you can. Last year, the SM version was available in white, so dealers (at least in Canada) have had white plastic since then. I believe that it's offered in white for the S model for 2009 and onwards, so again, you should have no problem finding them.

Good luck!

Hey guys...I have two of each brand new stock "E" muffler clamps (14459-29F00) and exhaust gaskets (14771-29F00). One of each have been removed from the package (still have the package) but plans changed so they were never used. All four are brand new. They were $49 + shipping. Will sell for $35 shipped.

I need stock "S" exhaust clamp. There must be millions of these gathering dust with all of the aftermarket exhaust systems that have been installed.

Also need a float bowl drain plug for a stock (factory) "E" FCR. See my flea market ad for a depiction.

TIA!

yhou've been lucky with the battery then...

AGM batteries last best when hooked to a tender. On my 2007 I did wha tyou did , charge it a bit here and there and by Spring it was DOA. Expensive little boogers from Interstate! Now it lives on the tender!

It works, so draining the float bowls is simply not worth it

The CRF diaphragm might do the trick. If not, the Taffy mod is simple (and cheap) enough.

One way or the other, you'll get it squared away.

Haven't tried it since mine is the "S" model with different carb, but many of my customers have bought the Boyesen Quickshot & now the new Quickshot 2 from me to install on their various dirtbikes that came stock with the FCR carb, and all of those that have given me any feedback claimed it makes all the difference in the world and totally eliminated the bog you mention...

Question Airbox Mod?

What do you have to do to open up the airbox. I've read that and a pipe make a big diff.
What if you want to keep the stock pipe. Is there re-jetting involved then?

to open the airbox cut about a 3"x3" hole in the top, unless you have an e, then you just remove the snorkle. You will have to put in a larger main jet, these things are jetted too lean from the factory.

All the directions you need are on ThumperTalk, basically you cut a 3"X3" hole in the top of your airbox, re-jet the carb and unleash the new beast. I am still running the stock exhaust on my '07. From all I have heard and read after market exhausts don't make that much difference, in fact they mostly take torque away from the bottom - right where you want it in a thumper - so I have no plans to put anything, exhaust wise, on my bike. I think you could do the 3X3 mod without re-jetting but most of the performance increase comes from a carb that can supply more fuel where/when its needed and an airbox that can give the additional air through the extra hole.

obssess par duex

...well the '06 is already gone, but ther's an '03 with 2200 miles and a Yoshimura pipe for the same price locally, sound like a decent price ($3250)?

So, where's the best deals on stuff like a larger tank, plastic, and cool bits?

I got my well farkled 05 for $2950 a year ago so for an 03 it's a little high in my book. That is unless it has racks and everything on it already.

You can't beat the ThumperTalk Store in my book. Everything from OEM parts to accessories. Check it out.

Then you have Motosport, Rocky Mountain, Chapprall, and a host of others.

A good pipe system will add 2-4 horsepower through the whole powerband, and adds a couple foot pounds as well unless you didn't rejet. You might be thinking of a slip on muffler with the stock pipe, which would add no horsepower or torque but just make the bike louder.

Yes, a pipe system is expensive(500-900), so whether or not it's worth it really depends on your budget, but it should add power.

Just FYI

I paid $460 shipped for my MRD/SSW full race pipe. It performs like the $750 yoshi Ti.
