    since the season is coming to an end here, im getting ready to order some carb rebuild kits. what do you guys think of these kits? seems like a good deal to me, and i like the included allen bolts.

    I have a real hard time believing these are real Mikuni parts at that price. If you would like me to do the math on real kits for you I can. retail price is $45 a kit, N&S $13 ea. so we are looking at $174 now take 30% dealer mark up off of that =$122 throw in a handful of bolts and he is giving them away at cost. Seems rather generous for an ebay seller with a store, considering between ebay and paypal fees he is getting hit for around 7% of the sale.

    So I like I said, they are not genuine Mikuni kits IMHO

    get through the online store, anything Riva has you can get through the online store here with a 10% discount. If it isn't listed in the store send Jerry (GreenHulk) the riva number and he will get for you.
    MK-BN38/44-SPR Rebuild Kit, 38/44/46mm Carb, Mikuni $ 54.93
    There are other places that carry them too, and you can find these on ebay in the original kits as well. as for the bolts go to your local ace hardware and get them, they are fairly cheap 5 mm SST allen caps.

    i added up everything i need to rebuild the carbs on both skis, fuel pump on the venture, and new oil lines and check valves on the venture, came out to like $643.00 with the discount! that is a pretty major minus, but i guess i am going to have to do it. how do i get the discount applied?

    Forget about the oil lines and go premix! Save your self the trouble!

    the oil injection is the cheap part! i cant go premix, i ride my ski around NYC, and usually use more than a tank in a day, so i need to be able to just fill up at fuel docks.
