I don't think there is a carb kit for this carb....I never came across one. Supposedly this carb is a pretty rare Mikuni.

What parts do you need? I would start by just removing the bowl and cleaning everything up. You should be able to pick up another used carb on eBay if you keep an eye on there for a month or two.

What scoots do you all have? Ruckus & Beluga?

BTW, check out the Flea Market section of this site. Someone is parting out a Beluga and it sounds like they have an exhaust.

Well I took the fuel tank & carb off for cleaning , but the diaphram was stuck solid in the carb body and got mangled when I tried removing it . The body and ports cleaned up very nicely but when looking for replacement parts ... obsolete . hehe . I will keep an eye out on ebay and CL . A honda aero 80 just sold on CL for $400 , but I wasn't sure if they were similar . it was running too . I've got a BB Ruckus , 88 Jog + parts bike , Beluga , 78 Vespa super 150 . The only ones licensed running are the ruck and jog . Well everything is going into storage for awhile as we sold our place and are thinking of checking out a few places in Manning park plus buy a small condo in the city . busy busy lol .Thanks for the advice Dan .

Hey there,
Had my 82' Beluga in storage for a couple of years after melting the zener diode (?) and after seeing this site, I'm gonna get her out again.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Get yourself some liquid plastic in the spray form. Available at most home hardware stores. Its really good at rejuvenating those old diaphragms...

That's cool you're in Victoria. I sold my wife's Vespa to a guy in Victoria and I was in Victoria for the Garden City Scooter Run this past summer. I'm living in Whistler now though and my scoot is inside for the winter.

Too bad I missed that....what Elite do you have? There hasn't been too many scooters in Whistler that I've seen. Besides my Yamaha BWS 125 and my wife's Vespa LX150, the only I've seen is one other modern Vespa, 1 Yamaha BWS 50, White Honda Metropolitan, Blue Yamaha Vino 50 and 1 white Derbi Bullet.....5 other scooters all summer isn't a lot.

EDIT: Oh wait....there was 2 Ruckus's parked in town one day.
