Well if your bike needs "crabs" I would try to find a cheap HD hooker for it. They probably have crabs plus other things too. lol

On a serious note, I would make the following suggestions. If you know for sure that you need new/rebuilt carbs then go to the Sell or Swap section and ask if anyone has carbs for sale. If you want to rebuild them yourself then do a search and find the information possibly in a "Sticky" as to how to do the job. I would also suggest that you do a simple and proper introduction in the Newbie Check-In section so we know a little about you such as your riding/wrenching experience and home location. One of our other members may be close by and may be willing to help you do the job. Also knowing your wrenching experience we can make the proper suggestions to help you. Good luck and welcome.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Might be trying to impress his new bike on his first date.don't buy snow crabs.king crab is much better.or get some soft shell crabs,and dip in tempura batter and fry in 350degree oil till golden brown.sorry some of us like to have fun here.unless your carb bodies are broken or missing, they can usually be rebuilt unless they are corroded really bad.what is wrong with them?
