Can I get buy carb stuff locally?

Hey Guys-

In the process of doing the ear shave I of course had to rejet my carbs... Since I have not touched my carbs since I purchased the bike I figured it would be a great time to clean them.

I used Roach's Video to take them apart..Which btw was amazingly helpful for a non expert such as myself.

It seems I have most everything I am supposed to minus a couple of small gaskets and washers.

To give you an idea of what I am looking for here is the website I am on and I also have the item number. Generally it is a gasket and a washer for the pilot screw..

Part 92022, 92055

Can I get these at a local store like home depot or Autozone?

Thanks All-

Do a search for Keihin CVK 34 carbs instead. A lot of other vehicles used them including snowmobiles and dirt bikes. And I doubt the local Kawi dealer would charge much for what you need anyway.

NO CHANCE you could find anything at Autzone or Home Depot that would even come close to working without a significant engineering effort. If you are able to, then big kudos to you, but in my mind it's not worth the effort with the potential idle problems you could have.

I have used car parts and even plumbing and home electrical parts on motorcycles before, but you have to have a really good understanding of what the parts do, and how they work. Not a good idea for anyone who has limited experience with mechanical things, or a "by the book" mechanic, which is what most younger ones are. Granted, todays vehicles leave little room for good old fashioned improvising.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
