Buy a new carb or used carb?

I need to replace my carb, 2001 cr125 and wonder if I should buy new or get a used one. I've been babying my current one for months because the threaded stem cracked the broke off, the piece the float screw goes on. Do I spend $200 for a new carb so I know it's not jacked up in anyway or buy used, there's some decent used ones on eBay.

Thanks

Buy a 38mm Keihin PWK carb, you won't regret it.

I vote for a new carb every time. Used ones are a gamble.

I thought about the pwk but how hard is it to get it working correctly? Bolt it on and jet or what? I have a ride planned next week that I don't want to bail on.

Thanks
