    Question Best place to buy Carb. kits?

    Where is the best place to by the Mikuni Carb. rebuild kits for my sl650. Do you buy kits for each individual carb or can you buy a 3 pack kit?
    Next question...The new motor is a 95, the ski is a 94. Do I set the carbs to the 1995 settings?

    I like this kit. Everything you need and it's Mikuni parts.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Polar...rcraftQ5fParts

    Otherwise you have to buy the individual kits, so you'll need 3 of them. And it doesn't come with the needle and seat. That's another $15 each. You can find the kits at most PWC parts stores, or guys like John Zigler and Randy from watcon.com can get you the kits.

    The settings are so close it shouldn't matter much. 1/4 on the MAG and 1/8 on the other 2. I'd set it to the fattest setting for each carb, and fine tune the screws from there. Checking piston wash, plug chops, and max RPM for best results.

    X thats an absolute steal for $129. I payed $80 alone for the needle an seats from riva....Then $45 a piece for rebuild kits from blowsion...Btw if your gonna do the full rebuild you might also want to consider the T-handel needle valve screws. They deffinatly help when it come to making on the fly adjustments.

    He usually does, just keep an eye out, or send him a PM through Ebay and see if he has another kit.

    Bought the new listed kit today. Also picked up a new hood knob & fuel switch.
    How hard is it to rebuild the Carbs? How do you set the "pop off"?
    Atleast I have the winter and a clean work bench so I can take my time and do it right.

    Pretty easy to do, Just do 1 at a time. That way you can look at a complete carb if you get confused.

    Setting pop off is only a matter of changing a spring. Now testing it requires a pop off gauge.

    Check out the Mikuni carb manual in the tech section, it will give you lots of info.

    X im not making it up either..Go to rivas web site, there literally like 24 bucks a piece... I bought my f/a from them for the sxi pro. Just look the prices up,I got f*cked big time becuase I wanted the cone style f/a. I bought the base plate mounts from blowsion for half the price of what riva wanted...Double the price cuz it says riva were know one is gonna see.
