FCR 41 carb

Hi all

Been looking round at the FCR 41 carbs.

There seems to be a fair few around but looking 400 for one.

Are all fcr 41's the same? Some seem to have a wire/cable? That's the TPS I believe?

There's one I've seen for around 300 but looks old and in need of a refurb. I figured if I'm taking the inernals out and refurbing it anyway an older one would be fine



Would this fit a 02 650?

yes, it is known as the 'MX carb'. it has a seperate belmouth making it a Mk1 or MX and well....it is an MX carb. it's the same carb as fitted standard to the Husabergs - all of them!

the TPS is redundant but don't remove it because grit will just get in your carb instead. there's nothing to 'repair' as such. try and buy a a little 'U' piece from Husaberg and a T-junction. a couple of pipes and clips...

try and cut 5mm off your inlet stub and you should be good. there isn't mush to "refurb" on them. just clean it out, set the float height at 9mm dead. change the jetting to Husaberg jetting and off you go!

oh! and you should have (and anyone thinking of buying one) got it with the throttle housing and cables if you can otherwise you have to find another 40-60.

regards

As a complete novice with carbs.

Is a 400 FCR carb 300 better than a del fully set up and correctly jetted?

May or may not help but my old 650 would happily lift the front wheel in third purely on the throttle with the Delo....when i put the FCR on it would do the same in fourth. Not very scientific but a clear improvement.
Is it worth 300? If you're planning on keeping the bike for a few years then yes, definitely.

Cool thanks. I'm not sure if it's where I sit on the bike but I don't seem to lift it that often. Seem to top out quite quickly too but i think that's another thread....

Oh no! Don't give me options....

I saw DCR have a quicksilver one for sale. Did a quick search and found a few NO's from various well respected members. I then spotted the poster was ME! Gregstar was my original login.

Well that's how much a used fcr will cost. So going new would be ideal for the same price.

Just thought it was a clear cut fcr41 is THE way to go, but I'm happy with alternatives.

The only thing that worries me if i have issues there won't be the kind of support and knowledge base the fcr has.

I'll certainly look into it

Makes me laugh when people advertise them as lifting in every gear!Mine was geared to do just on a ton but i tend to sit in the middle of the saddle as i'm tall.

No experience of the Lectron carbs on a Berg but two mates have them on highly modded 125 Huskies taken out to 140 and 160. They love em due to the ease of adjustment.
