I have a question about 05/06 carbs as well.
I have an mx 05 trx450r w/ 13.5.1 sparks piston, sparks exhaust, stage 2 hot cam, and I swapped out the 05 for the 06 carb that was on the first bike(06 that was having problems)
My questions is if I swapped back to an 05 carb, how much if any difference would there be in performance?
The only reason I'm thinking of doing this is I have two bad wrists(broke them when I was younger) and get terrible arm pump within 3-5 min of riding. I let a friend of mine borrow my 06 carb to go to a national race as his started sticking the day before he left... and he says it was all he could do to hold on after a few laps and he never gets arm pump.
This is what I think maybe a last resort as I've tried everything I can think of from working out my hands and wrist to spending stupid amounts of money trying to get my ike better setup... any help would be great. Thanks.

performance wise the the FCR carbs (06+) have a better throttle response than the keihn (04/05) carb . As far as your wrist issue there is a link in this section on how to make the fcr carb easier on the thumb bye modding the spring. A good antivibe stem and som flex bars will help you alot too.

Was in Engine tech faq section
FCR Throttle Spring Mod

04 trx 471r


My Youtube vids checkem out.

i put a fcr on my 04 and the throttle response was better but it killed my power so i switched back to my stock 04 carb

I feel the FCR is better. People say they are harder to work on, or they need constant tuning. I disagree with any of that. But..... it all depends on your build and what you race.
