From my experience, (and I've had mine apart more than twice) if you're careful all the parts can be reused unless damage is evident. The gaskets are just O-rings and the carbs usually just need a good cleaning and not rebuild. If you find damaged parts (torn diaphrams, bent needles) then you will have to piece order them seperate.
Hope this helps.

$15.50 for shipping less than a half pound of stuff seems awfully high.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

what he said. Also - before reassembly - Take all the rubbber parts and soak them in pure glycerin overnight. You can buy an 8 ounce bottle of the stuff for like $8 at the drug store. Glycerin restors the elasticity of the rubber - makes it er...uh... less stiff.
