carburetor

Hey guys in new to this forum. But I have a 1986 honda rebel cmx250 that I'm building into a bobber. The guy I bought it from said there was nothing wrong with the bike besides the carb. So when I took the carb apart it was missing jets and some cracks in the bowl it is a keihin single intake. Anyone know where I can get a used one? I looked all over an can't find one. So my question is for you guys. What aftermarket carb well work for that year bike??

Yes but mine is a single carb. So a double carb I'd would have to change out parts in the motor right?

This is getting a bit curious. The Keihin is a 28mm cv carb. The duals are 26mm Mikuni's with butterflies. I looked at one conversion but it didn't have room for air cleaners. Weird.
My 86 factory service manual is for a single carb version. Gotta love Japanese engineering.

Ok, I think I found something:"As out of my curiueity, I hunted down some information about the Unknown model which I was thinking as a rebadged model, but infact its a real HONDA, but for markets other the USA/Europe, Honda introduced and better/powerful version of Rebel-CMX250 and called it a rebel-CA250."
It had two carbs instead of one, irotational Gear Ratio, longer wheel Base, different engine side covers, different head Cylinder design, different side fenders, but too similar to be instantly identified :slight_smile: as compare to the original old CMX-250."

So, knowing that; it's back to getting the right Kehin. From what I found so far is that Honda used the V35C in slightly different versions.
85 to 87 used same carb. I'll check if the CMX125 used the same.

If the carb body is okay you can probably rebuild it.

How handy are you? Get some good quality epoxy and reseal the float bowl. Then buy the jets you need($5-$10) and reseal the carb. it is not that hard and will save you tons of hassle. Find a carb that is the same size and adapt it to your engine. I have done both and it works fine.

Met Jack back in the early 70's. Worked down the street from his place. Give'm a call.
