Get the TM33 pumper carb! All who have will undoubtedly echo that sentiment. Search and read up on it.

Could use a few other little parts like the wire that holds the idle speed cable knob to the float bowl.

If anyone has one send me an email or PM.

BTW, CLR cleaner in the lime green bottle does a fantastic job of cleaning the jets. Dont use it on the cast body of the carb...

Love the MT43 ! I don't a lot of high speed dirt cornering, mainly single track so for me it is perfect , it sticks to rocks and roots like glue .

I run my rear at 10lb and the front at 8lb I don't even bother airing up for the road and it handles it all well and man do they last forever !!!

hey guys, I just bought a parts bike to help when I refurbish mine.

Its a 95 dirt model, does anyone know if the suspension on this is better then my 94 street model? It definitely looks nicer, looks similar to the suspension on my dr 650 that I had last year. Also by the way Im gonna sell some of the parts on it, like the keintech vortex air box, and the pumper carb, and the engine, I have an add in the flea market if anyone is intersted.

Yes, the dirt model suspension is better

If you do sell the pumper be sure that you have tested it and it works 100% because they ALL wear out eventually
If it's not working 100% in all throttle ranges you'll probably have one pissed off buyer on your hands.

IMO that's not a very good idea. There is no in between. Either the slide bore is worn out or its not.
The only way to tell is if it's installed on a running bike such as yours and you have all the parts which will make it a simple test.

interesting, perhaps I will put the pumper on my street model when i tear it down just to test it? Is the slide bore you are reffering to the channel that the throttle rides in? Wouldnt the plastic wear out before the metal?

Yes...and the slide and the bore are both metal..... that's the problem.

G'Day Mate,

That looks interesting! I'm not so sure it looks good, but it does look like it will work. Good looks are over-rated anyway...THX

Which model number pipe guard did you purchase and how did you attach it to the header?
Thanks

I believe i got the 1171 not that i think it matters a whole lot , they can be bent into shape fairly easily.

They come with mounting clamps that actually work well but do put some high temp locktite on the screws .

Being a certified Cheap Bastard(tm) I went to my local machine/welding shop, rooted around in his scrap pile and for the price of 4 hose clamps and a six pack of beer got these heat shields:

Cool. I really like the MT43 rear on my DR for singletrack, but haven't tried the front. It has some downsides, but is worth it in our slick roots/rocks/mud trails we have in the PNW.

You mentioned not doing much high speed dirt cornering, but can you give an opinion on how that front tire works in that situation? I felt like the rear MT43 ruined the high speed gravel road handling; does the front make it even worse?
