Rubber bung in Mikuni carbs on 1982 GS650

Post by Rhek555 » Thu May 14, 2020 10:29 am

Hi does anybody know of a supplier in uk for Mikuni carb rebuild kits, specifically the rubber bungs for the pilots jet holes, in the float chamber, mine are melted (best word as they have been sitting in old petrol for far too long and are a stick mess).
cleaned the first one, three to go. ultrasound cleaner of amazon my new best friend.

Hi Rob, I am new too so reading all the topics. Read your list and thought.. I might know someone that could supply him with the whole lot.
Will let you know ;-)

I got the rubber bungs for a set of 1100 carbs from Robinsons late last year, so still available from Suzuki if required - remember your 10% discount from Robinsons! Can look up part number of required. I also use NRP as well (waiting on 2 Keyster kits from them at the moment, not Katana though!)

Good to see 2 new members posting Rhk555 and Lexdba - welcome both. Lexdba - we are going to have to become Katana Owners Club EU soon, had new members from Irelend and France as well :-)

I did ask him and he is going to check. He broke 3 GS650G's over the past 2 years so I'm pretty sure he has the parts on the shelves. Last time I checked there were 2 seats and 2 gas tanks, all the other bits must be there too.
