Float bowl O-rings

Where can I find float bowl and drain bowl rings? Thinking of replacing my rubber since I have the carbs apart

i already answered your question similar to this one last week... go to http://www.pjmotorsports.com/carb-rebuild-kits.html, or your local small engine repair shop, or MC dealership, I think (don't quote me) you might even be able to get carb parts at NAPA, as long as its a independent store not a franchised owned one.

do you ever go back and read the comments on your other Carb threads? I am just asking because you keep asking the smae questions over and over and over again, but never respond back in the same thread.

I do look at my old threads. I'm not looking to buy a whole kit at the moment. Just the rings. I went and bought two standard o rings that I'm trying to stretch to match the float bowl but the drain bowl will be a bitch. I'm pretty broke so spending money on an entire kit isn't worth it to me.

Kawasaki PN 92055-1290

Cheap Cycle Parts $11.04 each +s&h
Ron Ayers $12.25 + s&h

Bike Bandit $11.14 +s&h
Motorsport.com $9.80 + s&h
Partzilla $8.52 + s&h

this took me all of but 20 seconds to search. opened up my Kawasaki Service manual (downloaded from http://www.tocmanufacturing.com/File...nd%20Parts.pdf) opened the parts diagrams and searched through the carb parts and found the kawasaki PN then entered that into google. I just gave you the first five that google came up with... there are about 100 pages of companies that sell the o-rings. you might even be able to search through eBay for them and get them even cheaper. My point is... Try searching it... I even found several threads with the part numbers already posted when I searched the sight. https://www.vn750.com/forum/archive/i...p/t-13020.html

actually wolf, he isn't looking for a round o-ring.. the float bowl o-ring is a weird shape, and yes a round o-ring would work, but the correct one would work better. I tried my o-ring kit to see if I could find one close enough (I have both standard and metric sizes) but nothing fit perfectly.

...well, never actually tried the float one, but I have made round rings work in weird shapes (like the oval one for the petcock)....I just lightly smear a lil sillycone on it first (very little), then press it into the slot....I cover with wax paper and a weight until it binds.....

The o-rings for the chamber that contains the floats are circular (I got them at cheapcycleparts, I think) and the ones at the drain bowl aren't circular but you can buy them at any of the above mentioned websites and even on ebay. I think it was about $35 a pair on eBay.

Why did I not think of that ? Cheers Wolfie, another thing I have now learned.

One can never have too many alternative forms of transport.
