That little delicate piece over the carb...

I just searched through the first 3 pages and couldn't find anything (after searching term "carburetor")...

I was told there is this delicate little piece above the carb (I think) that is very easy to break while pulling carb out, due to maybe a light weld to begin with. My mechanic has the carb out (to be thoroughly douched), but says that piece appears to have been broken before and looks like it was epoxied. Also, the linkages appear slightly bent.

Does anybody know what I am referring to about that piece? If so, how important is it? Bike can still ride and be good to go, right? What about the linkages? Rebend them or do I need new?

One thing after another with this bike!!! Getting very irritated. I'm not a quitter, but this thing is pushing me to my limits.

only think *I* can think of that he is talking about might be the fittings for the fuel lines, or for the vent lines. but they are not on "top" or above the carbs, they are inbetween the 2 carbs.

you can probably get new linkages (or used), but they may be able to straighten them if they are not too bent up.

a pic would do a ton here if possible, but I realize the bike is at the shop.

Headed to shop in 45 mins. Will try a pic. He thinks he can tweak the linkages. I'll get a pic posted in a couple hours.

Same picture. I've marked the...troubled...part in my carb. You can see somebody had tried yanking it out before and twisted the linkage. Mechanic thinks he can fix it.

But, that plate on the rear side, with the blue arrow, needs to be replaced. You can see the linkage maybe looks snapped off or something. Not sure if that's all 1 piece or not, or even what it's called. But, I need a new one...or a used one. Anybody?!

you need a carb its too important to trust to jb weld or any other repair your mechanic could try (this controls the throttle and could get jammed WOT.

you could get just the part by itself oem, or get a whole carb assy. look on bike bandit to find the original part number and search it on amazon and/or ebay or look for a whole used carb assy. good luck

when going back in start on the left and lift the plastic air box up as much as possible and just wiggle it in, I remove all boots before starting, then once in the cylinder boots one at a time, then seat it in the boots, then the inlets

Tried bike bandit. As far as I can tell, that piece isn't shown individually, but rather part of the whole rear carb, from what I understood. Maybe I'm wrong. Looking for assistance on figuring out what that part is called. Not sure if it's just a cap or a cover or if it actually is supposed to be one whole piece (that's broken in 2)...

Somebody dropped those carbs at one point. I bought a pair of carbs due to worn out slides and they showed up just like that. Ideally the piece could be welded on but being die cast aluminum, you would have a better chance building it from scratch. Best option would be to source another set of carbs where that center float/mounting plate is intact, and in worst case transfer the carb bodies onto the intact center part like I did. Good luck, I hope I didn't ruin your day.

Tig weld may have been possible before all the epoxy. I think I found what it is...Chamber float assembly? Part 16020. But need to make sure it's the whole metal piece, not just that float. If you Google it, you'll see what I'm talking about. Carbs are pretty rare right now on ebay.
