A really good source for info is TT member Grayracer. He usually hangs out in the YZ400/426/450 forum

Aw man, I am so sorry to hear about this.
I suggest:
PM GrayRacer513
PM Eddie Sisernos
See if either has a carb body.

Scour TT classifieds and Ebay.

Failing that, you can get a new one from Suduco or the TT store

You could build and redrill, very carefully, some new mounts with the JB weld. It is an option that may get you through your camp trip, but I suppose the issue would always be in your head and could alter your daily ride plans. It's worth a try and you have 1.5 weeks to test it out while you wait for the new carb body to show up. WR Dave

No miracles here. eBay and the classifieds is where I would go first.

If you have a 08 carb you can borrow, you may be ok.

Use your pilot, main and needle, same settings. also be sure to use yur slow and main airjets from the carb bells. Do one jet at a time. Do not drop it! :worthy:
