I rode the bike into Gino's tonight and, like Flanny, we have a friendly rivalry with our bikes. I rolled up and just gave him the keys and said, "Take it for a spin and tell me what you think." and then waited for him to come back. Here's his first impression as he rode my bike the last time we went out with the stock FCR set up.

You know when Gino starts threatening with the mafia that he's beat. There you have it folks...990 with Cosentino Carb kit kills Gino's 990R! I love it!

Mission accomplished!

I guess Gino likes it!

"The carbs are working!" AWESOME. Restauranteur and raconteur extraordinary that Gino. Sign 'em up as your spokeswoman.

Regarding the carb vent/drain tubes, is there anything in particular you guys have done in terms of routing/placement?
(Are they as sensitive as the CV vents?)

Any reason to consider vent filters (ala 7602) for these FCR's like I have seen some do with thumpers?

I vent mine from the left down to behind the swing-arm, and from the right, up along the frame trellis to just behind the head tube, and curving down. No perceived issues with this routing, and no filters, but I also don't ride in silt and stuff either...

I would definitely run a vent filter, any FCR will suck in a tiny amount of air regardless of whether it's on a twin or a single.

They weigh and cost so little that there is no reason not to. If you are Gregor or Flanny you can get them in black or orange billet, for the former KLR riders out there, find an old film roll canister, fill it with the foam from an air filter and run your lines in and out of that.

I've been digital for so long I can't even remember what film canisters looks like. Besides, I ended up going with the orange velocity stacks so I'm going to order one of those orange filters but I think I'll just get black tubes. I guess I'll route it up front.

I just got a booking again in NYC for 17-18 of Dec. and I called Chris to see if he could get the chokes done by then and he said yeah, he should be able to. I booked my flight in early so I'll be rested on Monday and so I'll have Sunday to run and test the bike. I'd like to run the 41's and 39's back to back just to see.

I know Chris had to remake some parts for the kits and he's sick with the flu right now but I hope some others get the kits - I'll be curious what the impressions are.

Gregor

PS - since my shop days are numbered I did a quick iphone pano of my space. Not very clear really but I wanted to remember it.

I can't speak to their use on a 950, but on the singles, the 7602 filters keep a ton of crap out of the top of the carb- I'm sold on them. They also sort any issue with deep water crossings. I don't see a reason why the 950 would be any different...

This Moose Racing prototype windscreen would look totally choice on your bike too, Gregor...

I got me set of stacks in the end of last week. I didn't get to really dig into the box and look at them, until last night. SWEET PETE those are nice looking! Full write-up in progress...
