Question about 1995 Suzuki DR 650 RS-E

1 Answer

Carb I am going to buy Suzuki DR 650 RSE 1993 in few hours. I have understood that it has 40mm CV carb as original carb. Am I right?? I have Keihin FCR 39 from my previous bike (DR-Z 400 SM). I would like to use it in that 650. Is that possible? Can I use it or do I need to buy Keihin FCR 41, Mikuni TM 40 or something like that?

No! It will not work on your bike! Save yourself some major grief by sending it to me! :thumbsup: :lol: But seriously folks... it will work great once whatever jetting changes that may be required are done. I'm thinking you'll have to do some throttle cable rigging and possibly adapters for the air boot and/or intake manifold. I have no experience with this conversion so I'm just assuming. Taking the carbs off for measurements would answer all those questions. Certainly a doable project and a mass improvement over the vacuum slide Mikuni!! I have every intention of doing a project like this once I'm back in my home state of Michigan. Just in my initial thought process I believe I would pick the 39mm carb over the 41mm carb. My primary reason would be to maintain and/or improve low end. There will already be a marked increase in top end even going to the smaller bore due to the superior flow design of the FCR carb. Good luck in your project.... I'm jealous! If you ever think of not doing the project for whatever reason I'd be interested in buying your carb

THe accelerator pump is a squirt gun diaphram type of pump. To test it you need to be able to view the jets and actuate the throttle cable.

What type of keihin carburetor suits a FXST 1986-87

That year Softail came with the "butterfly type" Keihin carburetor. Refer to this site for a picture of the carb. There are several versions of this carb that were used with the latest version being the best one. It had an additional mid-range fuel port in the venturi that solved a "dead spot" problem in the RPM range where most people normally ride. As best as I can remember, Harley went to the Keihin CV type carb in 1990.

If your bike does not have an carb on it at the time and you are not particularily wanting to restore the bike to exact original condition, I'd consider an S&S Super "E" Shorty carburetor. You can purchase the complete kit to change the carb from most aftermarket dealers and some H-D dealers. The original Keihin carb was not very popular with most riders and this is the carb that a lot of them chose to put on the engine in it's place. The newer Keihin CV carb was a much better carburetor and can be installed on the engine but it will require an intake manifold change as well. You may be able to locate one of these later carbs at a swap meet for a reasonable price.

Good Luck

I have a 2003 superglide and the carb keeps building up with fuel and runs really rich and u can smell fuel .. any help

It sounds like you have a bad needle in the carb allowing the float bowl to overfill. It depends on what type of carb is on the engine as well. If it's the original Keihin CV carb, you'll have to remove the carburetor from the engine and remove the float bowl, the float, and the needle. Replace the needle and reset the float height is necessary. There is a special way of setting the float height on this carb. It must be set with the carbuetor body positioned at an angle. If you'll contact me directly at , I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level on the Keihin CV. If your bike has a different type of carburetor, let me know this and I'll try to help you with that as well. Don't forget to tell me what you need.

Good Luck

I need a Keihin 40mm CV Carburetor Schematic Diagram.

Got one. But, I can't send it through this forum as they limit my file size to 150K. Contact me directly at and I'll send you one or you can go to, click on OEM and select a year and model bike. This website's listing my not one for your particular year. Just get one as close as you can and it should be the same. Harley didn't change those carbs much.

Good Luck

Hi, i have a 1994 suzuki dr650 rse,it has noise on starting

Sounds like the starter motor clutch is worn or damaged and should be replaced.
Go to the link below and scroll down and click on STARTER CLUTCH. An exploded view diagram and part list is given. All sections of the bike are covered. The starter clutch is not a serviceable item and is replaced when faulty.
Your Yamaha dealer should freely verify the noise if your on good terms with them.
