    Carb Gaskets for 96 GSX and 97 XP

    I am getting ready to change out the lines on my newly aquired GSX and XP and was wondering if someone could point me to where I would find the gaskets for the carburetors, or can I just use the old ones?

    Thanks.

    should always get new ones with ANY gaskets, but you can sometimes get away with reusing....

    If you are talking carb kits, Dealer, bike shop can get them, about 14,000 places on the net. Get the carb base gaskets and replace them as well.

    Your going to have the BEST luck using Mikuni OEM carb kits. Just as well go ahead and order a popoff tester with your carb kits. Probably just order a couple of new fuel selectors and replace them well your at it. Make sure the o'ring in the fuel filter/water separator is perfect or just replace.

    Dowload the manual and print off the carb rebuild pages. Read through them a couple of times and keep handy while you rebuild the carbs.

    I was actually planning on just giving the carbs a good cleaning as per the DIY Fuel System cleaning on here, but wanted to replace the gaskets between the manifold and carb.

    I know where I can buy them, I'm just not sure of the part number.

    pick up some gasket material at AutoZone, take an exacto knife and cut new ones to match. easy and cheap...
