Quick question...
Will the carbs from other years' CB450 fit on my '71? It looks like my carbs may be beyond repair, and I can find a couple on eBay, but they're 1970, not 1971. Is that a big deal?

Thanks!

In the case you mentioned, the K3 (1970) and the K4 (1971) carbs are the same. I don't know of any differences.

It might not hurt to verify that the jets are the same sizes once you recieve the carbs.. You'll want to totally disassemble them anyway, for a complete cleaning, so it'd be easy to verify during the cleaning process.

People swap parts over the years, so it always helps to check it yourself..
