Mikuni Carburetor Rebuild Kits

Recommended Posts

TEWKS

If you have an aging dirt bike or ATV with a Mikuni carb it’s pretty tough to find a quality rebuild kit for them. Most kits are junk and cost one local mechanic a motor. Anyway, this company has kits directly from Mikuni which I believe had never offered their own rebuild kits before.

Can anybody spare a little of this before I start that project? :classic_biggrin: It’s about two hours just to dig them carbs out of the machine and then the thinking work begins. :5146:

Was gonna start digging them out this morning but, I’ve got an eleven o’clock poke in the arm I’ve got to take care of first. :eek:

My two cents Pat.  I've rebuilt the Mikuni on my KTM three times now and the float valve still leaks.  Spent more than a new carb trying to save some scratch.  Might consider simply replacing with new instead of rebuilding.  Especially if Ethanol has been in the tank most of its life.

Thanks Steve, I put out the 93 bucks for the kit so I'll give it a go. But yeah agree, sometimes you just have to know when to call it a loss. I'll see if I can motivate myself enough tomorrow to get them out of the machine. :classic_biggrin:

Choices...sit on the couch or take out carburetors? :dontknow: I took them out. It actually took me a lot less time than I remember. Maybe I was being a little more cautious the first and second time or maybe, it was because there was a first and second time. :classic_biggrin:
