    Carb Rebuild Kit

    I bought a carb rebuild kit to rebuild my Keihin CDK II on my 2000 Virage 700. I took the advice of others on this forum and bought (so I thought) original Keihin parts, not aftermarket parts. I ended up purchasing it from ebay (200624121721). He said it was OEM Keihin carb rebuild kit. "Not an aftermarket kit." When I got the package in today it says HGT Products on the package. Looks like every other kit on ebay but I paid twice as much for it. What do you guys think. Is this an OEM kit or did I get scammed? If it is not OEM, is it worth the hassle of sending back?

    I will obviously give him a piece of my mind, but is it so far inferior that I should send it back and find a genuine OEM?

    That's a Hot products A/M kit.

    Send it back and get your $$$.

    Then contact Jay at Sharp's Marine or John Zigler at Rock county Jet Ski and get the right stuff!!!!!

    FYI guys, I talked with John Zigler at Rock Country Jet Ski and he said he also sells Hot Products carb rebuild kit. He said it IS genuine Keihin parts but they have started to repackage them under HOT Products name.

    If John says it's good, then I trust him.

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread, guys but it seemed better than starting a new one for an already covered topic.

    My first order of business with my Virage is the carb rebuild as well - engine is nice and healthy and I want to keep it that way.

    Is John still the best source for these? I looked at eBay as well and it's hard to know what you're getting of course - some auctions are huge $ but the description and pics are ambiguous on the actual parts you are getting so it's unclear if they are OEM or cheap aftermarket junk.

    What's the best way to contact John, and what should I expected price-wise for a good quality kit with jets, gaskets, seals....everything?

    Yes, John is the best. Great guy. Do a search on rock county jet ski and you'll find his website with contact info

    I think he's about $150 for a full Polaris carb rebuild kit

    He is referring to the Fujis. 50-70 bucks I would think to fully do one Keihin carb.
