Alright guys, finally decided to sell the carb used for the testing of my 480 at Venom Performance. Alot of information on this carb can be found in the Venom Performance section in the "pinned" threads under "NHRA's TRX480.."

This carb made a full 3 1/2 hp over my stock '04 carb on my 480 build all else being equal. I've since had the carb changed over to a methanol setup, but will include all the gas setup parts in the sale, as pictured. (Needle, jets, etc.)

I bought this carb new from Carb Parts Warehouse. It started life as a Keihin 41mm MX carb. After receiving it, I shipped it directly to Sredrum who taperbored it to 43mm with a new center ring, blended it to the removable intake adaptor, and also tapped the bowl to accept leak jets.

This carb has everything. TPS plug for the '04-'05 450r's (not for sure if the tps is the same on the '06-'08 450r's), Hotstart, choke, and intake adaptor. The carb is basically brand new. Never been rode with. The only time this carb has on it is that it was used for roughly 150 dyno pulls. Carb also uses the stock throttle cable. You would be very hard pressed to find a nicer "used" FCR anywhere...

To get an idea of what a new carb like this would run ya:

Keihin 41mm MX from Carb Parts Warehouse- $600+
Sredrum 43mm taperbore job w/ new center ring and tapped for leak jets- $275
Methanol kit parts (Needle, air jets, main jet, etc.- $50
Pre-tuning- Free ;>)
So, over $925 to purchase a carb like this new.

I'd need $650 shipped via paypal if anyone is interested. Shipping to the lower 48 states only. Carb would ship within 24 hrs of cleared paypal payment. Let me know if you're interested. Sorry, but I'm not interested in entertaining any lower offers at this time. Thanks- Kris

what intake adaptor is that....looks sweet[/b]
Thanks!

The intake adaptor came with the carb. I guess I call it the "Sudco" style adaptor, but I'm pretty sure it's a factory keihin part. The nice thing about it is that it attaches with 2 allen head bolts, so it can be easily removed for cleaning or changing air bleeds. Sredrum done an excellent job of boring the adaptor to match the carb also.

and you watch your step old man or Im not sharing my custom goods with you :laser:

LOL......where's the smilie with the old man and his walker?

Poor Chris just trying to make a buck, and we use it to admit we have a problem.

Step 1 of the 12 step program........dont intrude on someone elses thread.

Free bump for a great deal, should sell by the end of the day. If not Gary's gonna buy it just because he feels guilty and he cant help his addiction.

Bump for the weekend. Taking off for the Venom test session shortly.

I won't be back on here until Monday morning, so if anyone decides they want it, send me a pm. If there would happen to be multiple
people wanting it, it will go to whomever pm'd me first.

Thanks, and have a good weekend.
