Shit, TPS on FCR 41

I got the FCR in today, and it has a Throttle position sensor.

Can I just take it off, or do I leave it on and not mess with it at all.

I know ya'll are tired of answering my questions

Don't worry about the TPS just make it so water can't intrude.
Lecky tape or something.

Im sure there are issues with fitting the fcr41 mx ie rubbing gas tank??

Will it just fit straight up to the inlet and air box boot just getting confused here as thought there was quite a lot of work to make it fit?

Sure it will be worth it tho best carb available

I was wondering the same thing, what type of work are we talking about? has anyone found a straight guide to a install and the best place to order or buy the whole kit?

I can only speak for the TM40 personally.
It's available from Sudco as a kit,maybe the FCR is as well.
I know the FCR needs some tank bashing though.
A few of the lads on TT have done it.

Clarke 4.3 gal

Soo, after just getting my very own BRP recently I purchased the Clarke 4.3.
Short of tipping my bike over to allow fuel over to the petcock side, can I simply add another petcock to other side of tank so I can use all the fuel possible? Its kind of annoying not being able to max out fuel capacity. Is there a kit available to do so?? Thanks Chaps.

Some great information i was always wondering why the tard crew were using the xr400 cdi... will make a great addition to the performance related mods

The standard tank is a bitch to reshape due to the plastic used?

Have the 4.3 Clarke fitted myself and as mentioned is an absolute pain with the fuel left on the one side, just cant remember a kit available...

ie dual taps sure your not thinking of the Acerbis big tank?


It would be nice to have a link to the definitive installation of the tm40 and fcr41 buying a kit over here in the Uk is just too expensive and would prefer to go the Diy route to keep costs down anyone making adaptors and suitable cables??

Just love the Brp loads of stuff to do if you feel you want to improve it just that bit more!

Pissed Broken front axle holder stud ; (

I guess i wasn't familiar with the "don't work on a cold bike" concept, and taking my front wheel off last night one of the 4 axle holder studs SNAPPED right off... ugh... They look like the studs are actually part of the fork.

There's a foot of snow here, so at least i'm only wrecking my bike, not my whole weekend.

WTF 2 Do Now???

THey are studs that screw into the fork...they are not part of the fork. (unless they changed them from my 2000)

If your good at EZ-outs then that will be a final option but to help your self out I'd warm it up and let it soak in penetrating oil. I wish I could give your some tricks but I had a problem keeping mine tight so my issue was the opposite.

So what do you guys think is it worth the $$$$ to go with the fcr41 or the TM40?
