DR 800 SM Carb parts

Postby off-the-planet » Tue Sep 08, 2015 4:21 pm

Hi everyone,
I have a pair of 800 SM carbs that I am hoping to fit to my 800 SL.
To achieve this I need the choke slider mechanism and retaining bushes etc. that fit on the carbs and actuate the chokes, and whatever fitment is needed to attach the choke cable.
(Sorry, I don't have a parts diagram, and it is a long time since I had a SM, so can't remember how the cable attaches).
Also the carb set upper and lower plates that hold the pair of carbs together would be nice, (so that I can assemble everything before replacing the carbs on the bike).
Can anybody help me out?
Regards,
Chris

Can't help with the parts Chris, but you will find diagrams on csmnl.com. It's worth noting that the sm jetting etc is different to the SL model. This is due in part to the different air box designs. Let us know how it runs after the swap :tup:

Thanks nug,
I think it's a bit of a non-starter, (pardon the pun).
Big Bob tells me he tried it years ago and the bike ran rich.
If I'd thought about it more, and kept the SM air-box I had in the shed, maybe I'd have given it a go if I could get hold of the choke parts, (discontinued).
The carbs on the bike are ok, I just need to replace the fuel tap and some fuel lines, so was going to have a play with the carbs whilst the tank was off.
The SM carbs are brand new old stock purchased from Big Bob many years ago when I still had a SM.
So if anyone out there is in need of a brand new set of SM carbs...?
