Rebuild carb kits?!?

Can't find a kit anywhere but I did find a lot of people saying there is no real kit. I need to have my carbs rebuilt and was told to get the kit. I have no idea what's in the kit to even order. This ****in bike is a real headache lol. Any help would be great.

Count me in as interested as well. The only thing that totally blows my mind are the cost of carb boots.

Any time you rebuild a carb you basically use the same few parts. You want to replace any o rings and seals, any type of diaphragm and possibly the floats. These carbs are kinda simply designed compared to a lot of the other carbs I've worked on. 9/10 you are going to get by with a good cleaning and maybe new bowl seals. Search for roach's videos on rebuilding carbs, they offer a lot of insight.

hope this helps:

HERE is the breakdown for the carbs and parts can be ordered as needed.

I also PM'd a link to the online manual for you too.

The float bowl gaskets are just o-rings, you may not need to replace them anyway.

One can never have too many alternative forms of transport.

I keep sayin it, but nobody listens.....DONT search for VN750 specific parts.....search for Keihin CVK34 parts.....all internals are the same and were used by even snowmobiles....main difference is that ours are siamesed....but all internals, like jets, diaphragms are all the same.....many parts from other CVKs will fit and work too....Japs dont vary things that much....too costly to make new molds for castings, etc....

Why dont nobody listen ?....a CVK34 is a CVK34....besides the siamesing....some quads use the same....snowmobiles....even some Harley parts work, as some models used CVKs....search the carb, not the mutherfookin bike.....else you pay top dollar.....

Funny thing there Wolfie.. I told em the same thing too... my 2004 Arctic Cat 400 4x4 has the identical carbs... they just put them in the machine backwards. throttle linkage is on the left instead of the right.

Carb kit number is 025-676 you need two of them though
