    2005 Ultra 150 Carburetor Assy.

    Made a huge mistake this summer. Had a great running Ultra 150 but forgot to put the cap back on my flush and got salt water all over engine before realizing ski was sinking. Plugged it up, drove it until compartment was drained, washed engine down as well as I could and put in garage for weeks before starting. When I did, trottle was stuck. Dealership says carb got corroded and needs replacing (quoting $1,435 for part). I asked about solking in solvent, rebuilding, etc., but they say they can rebuild this carb, and the butterfly is a little bent.

    Questions:
    1. Is a used carb worth seeking? ($1,400 is hard to stomach)
    2. If I have to replace, is there a better choice then the stock Kaw. part for performance or cost sake?

    You can find used carbs on here from machines being parted out. A bent butterfly valve will make it run like Crap. 3-400 plus a rebuild kit sounds better then 1400..

    Those carbs are toast. There are many little passageways that will never be able to be cleared out. It's not worth the expense of a new motor. If you do buy new carbs, will you sell me the choke butterflys? I bought a set of carbs that were set up with a primer incorrectly and i'm trying to put the choke back together.

    Lots of Ultras blow engines, so you'll find a lot of carbs on Ebay.

    And just remember that lots of ultra engines blow up because of carbs, so purchase wisely and go through whatever you get.

    Have new carb in now and have old part, but it is rather large and heavy....don't know how to remove butterflies.

    The screws that secure the choke plate are staked in place. You'll have to file off the end of the screws, then unscrew them with a screwdriver that fits very well. The blade will than slide out, then you can slide the shaft out.
