    Carb rebuild

    Hey guys, I'm rebuilding my carbs this spring so the ski will be set for summer. I have a 1999 SLX 1050 and I have read that they have 40MM carbs keihen I believe? I was just wondering what would be the best kit to buy I want to repalce it all you know the diaphrams the accelerator pump diaphram, everything. Also I bought the ski in california it was operated on the coast and now I run it at an elevation of 4800 ft should I rejet? One last thing is there anything I should watch for or make sure to do? , Thanks!

    You might give Randy at Watcon a call. He should have the kits and might be able to sell you only the parts you need.

    Aren't you guy's talking about 2 different brands of carbs? I could rebuild a mikuni with a blindfold but forget about a Keihin! Z
