I am thinking about installing some Fcr's but I am not sure how much work is involved. I am mechanically inclined so doing the swap should not be an issue. However, I have never adjusted the settings on any carb. Has any one done this mod themselves. If so, how much diddling was needed to get the bike running "right"?

Try talking to Chris at California Cycleworks, here:

http://www.ca-cycleworks.com/

He is the guru on FCR's for Ducs, and can tell you all you need to know, as well as furnish you with a kit that's done right to begin with.

Quite a few folks here have done FCR's, and they all seem to be really happy with how they work.

Chris is the guy, if you go on the website there are specifics on adjusting it. I put them on myself and it was easy, but I was running a little lean. Instead of adjusting myself I went to the local shop because I also had some engine work to do so at the same time I had it dyno tuned which is the most accurate way to go. You will Looooove them, it is the best performance mod you can make.

Hey y'all, thanks for the props!

Right now, FCR kits are "holding" on throttle cables. So they're not shipping promptly. I managed to scrouge up a few parts from other vendors and get a couple of kits out today. Do not let this delay submitting your order, though, as I submit my "back order" to reserve the kit for me (in the event that something ELSE runs out with the kits).

:) Chris

SCDUC,
Go the FCR's, get em from Chris & everything will be so close you that won't have to fiddle, you won't be dissapointed.

This is my first bike & quite frankly i was concerned about the same thing, adjusting. Like your self i'm mechanically minded but had only worked on cars.

I did it myself, (took longer than it said on Chris's FAQ Page) but eh, not bad for a beginner.

All i had to do post install was up the mains a bit, this is a 2 minit job & can be done on the side of the road.

Go the FCR's!!!!!

They're flat-slide Keihin carburetors, to replace the OEM Mikuni Constant Velocity carbs.

They don't apply to us injected folks. ;)

Do it! It's a fairly simple bolt-on and you wont believe the difference. Talk about instant gratification.
