I was buying a FCR39 on ebay to use on my ´05 DRZ400S. I am not sure what bike it was installed on before, so I guess I need to rejet it before installing it.
I ride from sea level to around 2000 feet altitude. Normal temperature is around 40-60 degrees. Of course I will enlarge the air intake when changing the carb.
Can anyone tell me the best jetting for this setup?

Finally I´m installing the carb on my bike....

I´ve got two questions:
1. There is a breather hose coming from the crankcase, through a box and to the intake manifold. The "E" manifold I have now does not have a hole for this hose. What should I do with it?

2. The Mikuni I´m replacing did have 2 electrical plugs, 2 pin and 3 pin. The FCR does only have the 3 pin. Can I just leave the 2 pin plug as it is (not connected)?

you extend the vent line and run it down toward the ground.make sure it doesnt get kinked.

you plun in the 3 pin connector (tps) and just leave the other unplugged.
