    I was riding it recently and it just bogged down and died. Restarted and wouldn't go over 20~ mph. Shop it is at now says its the carbs and they want $2000 to fix it, I told them to go screw. Last time I had the carbs rebuilt I was charged $350, so I know how much it is to get them rebuilt. Anyone able to recommend me someone?
    If you absolutely know it`s the carbs your probably better off sending them to OsideBill or IR on Long Island. Not to many people versed in rebuilding/repairing carbs that can back it up... unless you do them yourself.
    Plus I`m sure pricing has gone up now for any rebuild service.
    The issues is when it bogged down, did it cause a lean condition and a light seizure? did you at least do a compression test to confirm the health of the engine... based on hours/age etc there could very well be more going on, IE fuel filters/hoses/pumps.

    Just be careful who works on your craft. There are plenty of hacks in NJ and around...
    If a shop or reputable person does rebuild your carbs, then you`d have the company to back up any issues/work or refer to them for questions.

    good luck!

    Thanks, you are right I should check the engine. OsideBill I do remember from years ago, didn't know he was still around!
