Carb rebuild kits. Any good?

Post  R056rx on Sun Nov 24, 2013 9:04 pm

Has anybody purchased one of the carb rebuild kits from ebay? They all seem to be between £20 and £30 and say they contain all necessary o rings and jets for complete rebuild. Seems very cheap to me!

Are they any good or is this a false economy and I should be going to my Honda dealer?

I would stick with OEM items myself, still cheap even from Honda...and you will guarantee they fit and work 100%

Thanks guys. nice I think I'll stick to OEM, at least for the first time I take it apart. Are there any seals or O rings that should be changed as a matter of course very time you pull it apart, or should I just replace the ones that are obviously worn out?

Replace the lot , cheap enough to do , even if they look fine they can leak , consider the age of our bikes .
