Has anybody tried these eBay fcr carb rebuild gasket kits?

9 posts in this topic

It seems like my pilot jet has something that really gets stuck in it every once in a while. Or it's just getting a little clogged up from the ethanol. Sometimes it works fine, most times it takes awhile for it to get going, need to clean out my pilot jet and might as well do everything.

I am assuming that my motorcycle already has the JD jet kit but will check when I take it apart. But I'm assuming that my orings will be crappy and I might need the other gasket.  

 

I normally would order through the OEM on Rocky Mountain ATV but way too many things on the carb schematic for me to want to look them all up :-)

The 'kit' will not solve your issue. Spend $6 and buy a new pilot jet. Cleaning, unless you have an ultrasonic cleaner, is a waste of time.

Thanks, I plan to...  wouldnt I want to replace most of the gaskets? Don't they usually go bad after a while? Is there a really good chance that they are all okay and i should wait until I tear everything apart? The way my gas is smelling I'm thinking that everything inside is pretty well varnished :-)

The one questionable thing with some of the ebay kits is if the O-rings and gasket can take the ethanol fuel . if the carb hadn't been apart in a long time I don't think it is a bad thing to have new O-rings to put back in . I like to anyways , maybe not necessary most of the times .

Thank you very much, hopefully no one else buys it until I get money :-)

So does that kit have everything that could go wrong on an old bike? (2001)

The only thing it doesn't have is the accelerator pump diaphragm, but you could check yours to see if it needs replacing. I didn't use the main jet or needle it was smaller than the one in mine.

I think I got the same kit you got. My carb looked like it was thrown into the river. I soaked it in simple green, then took the compressor to It. Looks new. Hopefully the issues I have been chasing will go away.
