from what I hear, there aren't any kits for this carbs. I think that you can buy the parts seperate but not as a kit.
Lance can help you with this.

Since I had the carbs off I thought a rebuild was a good idea. After looking inside, all looks well. The rear jug was running rich and someone adjusted the pilot screw to try and compensate. I found some trash in the idle circuit jet. Seeing some glue on the jet bowl o-ring, I figured someone, somewhere had a leak and tried to stop it with RTV. That got into the jet. Those stupid little o-rings are $10.60 each. Since both had the glue on them I wanted 2 new ones, but not for $20+ ! . At work, we have an o-ring splice kit and some o-ring cord. I found some cord which was .006" larger than the original which will make up for the thin stock one. I can post pictures later. I may be able to make more for those here with a similar problem or just looking for those jet bowl o-rings.

No rebuild kits for these carbs. Just have to make a list and buy each part individually.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. The o-rings I made for the jet covers are in and working nicely. I swear Kawasaki made them a little too thin as they compress and begin to leak.

Are all o-rings made of material that will withstand being exposed to gasoline continuously?
I seems I recall being told that o-rings exposed to gas, need to be made of something called "Viton". Can anyone verify this?

neoprene is used to make most o-rings, and is not fuel safe... especially in states where ethanol is added to the fuel
