  1. Aftermarket/original
    Whatever you've got.
    The dirt and grime got to mine and I'm throwing in the towel, I know nothing about rebuilding these things and I feel the expense wouldn't be worth it for a bike that originally cost me $150.

  3. I was looking at the MikesXS carb set, and that dude charging hundreds to rebuild carbs seems like a waste when for a hundred more I could get new ones

  5. Shoot me the pics, I'd rather pay for original carbs instead of the MikesXS.
    But then again I'd rather make mine work lmao

    I have a very nice set from my sons 1981 650. $125 includes shipping. Let me know. I think I have pics from an earlier ad I had on here trying to sell them. Probably about two to three weeks ago.

    I've used Rick at OldSkoolCarbs a couple of times for full blown rebuilds. He has an add in the SHOPS section of the forum. They look like jewelry when you get them back!

    I think I've sold to you before. I don't scam people, anyway you can pay by goods and services if you prefer. Mitch

    I can give good feedback about plowboy, he is a strait shooter....and wont scam anyone

    Ive purchased a set of carbs from him and I was verry happy

    I have also purchased over 15 seperate purchases from members of the forum and always use friends and familly, and never have I been screwwed... and I imagine if anyone ever got screwed that once the rest of the people here got word of it, the person doing the screwwing wouldnt be around much longer

  16. Yeah I gotcha, I think I'm going to buy a rebuild kit and see what happens.
    If that fails I'll buy some new ones
