I have a small crack inside my Keihin FCR carb. Its above the drain screw. I guess I tightened the screw to tight. Am I the only idiot to do this?

Where can I buy the bowl? Any suggestions? Sudco wants $150.

I thought I would post, I dont want anyone else to do this. I'm so stupid!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Be aware that Sudco's likely does NOT have a leak jet, so your AP timing will be a beeotch to dial in. I'd double check with them before you pull the trigger. JD Jetting advertises a Float Bowl w/ Leak Jet for $60, so I'd give them a call before you do anything else. If you go OEM, you have to buy a whole new carb :thumbsup: ...SC
