So I was changing my friends needle and over tightened one of the screws that holds on the top cover of the carb and snapped the small threaded tab that bolt goes into. We have fixed it temporarily but i'd like to get him a new carb.

I found this on ebay, but was hoping somone could tell me if its the same carb that was on his '02 426? I'd like to just take the body of the carb and put all his jets/parts into it.

If not, what are my options as far as bolt on carbs go?

So how might I find out if the yz450 carb is the same model as the wr426?

not 100% sure, but i think they are different.
that carb is a yfz carb which is a quad. I would keep looking.
the 426 carb should be more like this one.|39:1|240:1318
