I use them. They are a lot like the other FCR carbs, but there's a couple differences. Some good, some bad.
The bad is that they don't fit under the tank very good unless you cut the top of the throttle housing down. I cut the tors switch off, and cut the housing, then seal the top with duct tape.
Once that's done, I actually prefer these. The accelerator pump doesn't need the zip tie mod, and it doesn't have that coast down enrichment garbage on it.
One other difference is the cable fitment. You can get a yfz cable to work with it, but the Honda cable fits easier.
Jetting is like the others. I usually use a NCVQ needle instead of what they come with.
I also highly recommend a noss adapter or some sort of Bell for the inlet side of the carb. None of the flat cut FCR's really work to their potential without one.
