;)  I'm thinking you'll need the hot stuff to finish this build.

You're probably right. And beer. Lots of beer. Or is that required for the tomfoolery it will promote? Either way...

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

My reccomendation comes from real world experience.

I believe you, it's a CV carb if I'm seeing it correctly. CV flat slide it appears? Looks like an electric choke? (I'm going off of eBay pics)

the CV wont be large enough, maybe thats what cxman was saying.

imo a 41 would work, but will be more difficult to tune the bottom end on that 9:1 engine. The 39 will supply plenty of air to acheive max power and the flat slide keeps the bottom end response crisp. The drz400 is a powerhouse per cc.

2000-2006 DRZ400E (49 State model) Keihin FCR39
2000-2003 DRZ400K Keihin FCR39

dr500 will wheelie super easy with that carb.

how much wheel travel ? did you even remove the spring to see what you have ?
you cant just bolt in a shock like that and expect it to work thru dumb luck
you would have much better suspension with the stock swingarm  and good shocks than the ^&*(P){_ rigged set up you have now,and  that shock you put in there is junk anyway...cheap.never did work good, oem worn out JUNK

Yep I just dumb lucked it and guessed that it would work. That's how I roll. I just weld stuff together until it rolls around the garage and assume it will work.

If you had bothered to look through the pics I posted you would see pictures with the rear spring removed.

For the record there is over 11 inches of wheel travel at the rear axle. Linkage geometry is identical to the OEM TTR unit that the bike came off of. I know what I'm doing, thanks for your input.

Question: Your post says you went one size over on the bore, but your piston reads 'std'. Did I miss something?
