FCR MX throttle cables on XR650L

6 posts in this topic

I have recently purchased a used 40mm FCR MX on ebay to install on a 2002 xr650l. It installs fine using a NOSS airboot adapter and despite the questionable condition that the carb came in, after a bit of cleaning up, rejetting, and replacing seals I believe it will work well. The push-pull throttle cables also install easily, but the barrel adjusters are at the end of their range. I am wondering what experiences others have with using the stock xr650l cables. Are they slightly too long for this application, or maybe mine have just stretched from 11k+ miles of use?

Maybe some new cables will fit a little better, I'll give that a try when I get the chance.

You have adjustment available at both ends of the cable. On the carb and at the bars. Have you adjusted the cable at the carb?

Great! Thanks for the answers, I had no idea that there were a second set of adjusters at the bar end of the cables.
