In need of a set of carbs. My 93's carbs can be repaired if I absolutely have to, but I'd rather find some in need of less attention.

The vent hoses were left off of the carbs and they've ended up filled with water, I also assume the previous owner left it sitting with E10 (+) in them, so they're anything but nice. lol

Long story short is I'm looking for a cheap set of carbs so I can spend some money on the clutch too :)

Not getting my hopes up, but worth a shot.

Thanks,
Frank

I sent mine to Carl a year or two ago and it was a quick turn around. They have worked great. Give him a call. Best thing you can do. He even puts them on a Voyager to check them out before shipping. Can't beat that! :D

I have a set of carbs but want to keep them untill I find out what is going on with the choke on my 2001. It runs good but the choke won't go all of the way off.

If I can't find a decent set, I'll be either buying a serviceable set from Carl Leo, or sending him these to part out for a good set. I'm not big on re-using these as they look to have been treated with the kind touch of a few hammers. Also missing some bits here and there.
