I had nothing to do with the conversion on these FCR carbs, owner dropped them off few weeks ago as intention is to tune his brand new engine on the Dyno with his carbs in place
no use me running his engine up with a decent set of Mikuni RS Flatslides bolted on and then he bolts the engine in his frame and installs the FCR's and the engine runs like crap
he told me he has been using them before pulling the engine so I presume they work

truthfully, I have hardly even looked at them, bolted them on when I finished building his engine to get them out of the way
flat out building loud toys at the moment

I don't understand the no choke on FCRs,thats what I thought I had on my 05 TE 250 Husky and it has a choke and also a hot start button,that cracks it open a touch to make it start easier when the bike is hot.If there on individual carbs why not a bank

there are some with and some without choke. As it is simply the same body, one can install choke on non-choke FCR's with some machining.

For triples, I still have two choke actuation links for getting all 3 chokes opened at the same time if anyone is interested. they are laser-cut out of 1,5mm stainless and are currently flat for easier posting. they need some bending at the right places, but I can provide pictures. Price is 30 plus posting.

Hi all

I needed some support for the Ignitech ignition I am installing on the 82 1200 TS Mirage project.

Red went well out of his way to provide superb timely support, and to quick ship some additional bits I need to finish the project. Highly recommended!

Also, I ordered three of his exhaust manifold clamps. Gorgeous, jewelry quality, really reasonable pricing as well.

Thanks Davo.
This afternoon, on my way back home, I dropped into the Redax shed to help out and Maxene walked up with a parcel delivery that was addressed to me.
A card and gift of thanks from Davo.   Choice  (thumbup)    & as Max says "praise is good!"
So I pinned the card beside the Redax Laverda friend's board, helped out with a triple, consumed more cold tinnies out of the shed fridge, then headed home with my bottle of bounty.   

We're pleased Davo you're once again having fun riding your Jota.  & I do like a good series 1 triple   :D
  & the rum is good, so I'll go pour meself another, then better logout ay ...   (drunk)

Season's Greetings to all

Correct.  The Corvette has been Redaxed good and proper.  I'm told it goes, handles and stops like never before.
  & fortunately Maxene had her seat belt fastened before trying out the new upgraded brakes.   :D
