I just want to say hello to everyone as i just bought a 06 XR650LPosted Image and crossed over the Honda playing field. Im comming from a 2000DR650 with just about every mod i could get my hands on but the aftermarket parts are quite limited for this modelPosted Image. . Anyways, i replaced my 40MM cv carb from my DR with a 41mmFCR and i was wondering if anyone has ever tried to put this carb on a XRL? my reason for asking is that the L comes with a 42.5 cv and the R come with a Keihin 40mm piston-valve and im not sure why the smaller diameter carb for the R..higher compression?..I'd love to use my FCR as it wasnt cheap and would suck to have it sit in a drawer. Thanks on advance for any views:ride:

I have no idea about your question, but I love the bike! Is that tank painted or did it come in black. I know they come in black but most of them are more glossy (maybe the pic). The flat black tank seems to match the frame and side covers perfect. If painted what did you use (or the previous owner)?

Thanks

The CV carb can be larger because there's no worry about whacking the throttle open and having it bog.

Is that a pumper carb?

That's what an accel. pump is supposed to fix.
