I'm having trouble finding single parts for carburetors. We don't actually have a Honda dealer near here otherwise I'd go in and try to find a part number.

I'm wanting to replace both seats and needle valves on my 1972 CB350 carburetors. The needles are worn with grooves on them and I'm taking on fuel in the bowls even though the floats are good.

I don't want Keyster rebuild kits. I just need the seat and needles. Does anyone sell just those?

Hmm.. I cant get a transaction through on that site. It wont take my credit card info and they don't have a phone number to call. I emailed them and will see if they get back to me.
My paypal went right through. Starting to worry....a little. Let me know if they respond.

Your transaction would have been denied as your billing address did not match the address on file with your credit card provider.

Please try correcting this, or alternatively paying with Paypal.

Thanks

I think they are pretty averse to giving out any sort of phone number for whatever reason, but somebody is watching. I will try using paypal since that's more secure anyway.

edit: PayPal went through OK.

My carb float valves showed up in the mail Saturday. They were packed well. The only downside is that they're made by Keyster rather than Honda OEM.

We shall see how they work. The spring loaded plungers in the needles are much stronger than the original ones I have in there.

I put mine in on Saturday and they are working fine. After installing, I tested with gas flow on and no float bowl installed. They shut the gas flow completely when I manually moved the float.
