Need jets & shims

Trying to get my "new" old bike on the road. I'm looking for:

(4) needle shims
(1) Genuine Keihin jet # 140
(1) Genuine Keihin jet # 142

I can't seem to find genuine parts locally. Thanks.

Jason

Have you tried local dealers?
I found my local Honda dealer carried them & cost about $2 each jet.

Nothing genuine Keihin in my area. Are Honda brand jets just as good? Do you know what the part numbers are? Some of the dealers here are bright as a bag of hammers.

You can use #4 washers from RadioShack as shims. I did when I rejetted my bike and they worked fine.

I also bought my jets from HERE.

I only understand what I don't understand.
