no XL80 parts???

Recommended Posts

XL80s? I didn't even know they existed until recently. I am in the process of trying to get a '82 running again and I thought I should start with a carb rebuild kit. I can't find gaskets anywhere! The only thing I could find is a float needle. Anyone have any ideas? I notice they sell lots of china carbs for those bikes, but they sound junk.

We put one of those Chinese ebay carbs on a big bore XR50 a couple years ago.  Runs better than it did with the original carb.  Fine for the little pit bikes, but I wouldn't use one on a bigger bike.

Thanks for the replies. I ended up carefully taking the carb apart and giving it a good cleaning. Thankfully I was able to preserve the gaskets and replace the float needle. Starts on the first kick!
