Carburetor differences 2006 and up

I am in the market for a new carburetor for my 2006 Rebel 250. Looking at OEM parts online, the retailers have different part numbers for 2006 and 2007 models (16100-KEN-671 and 16100-KEN-B11 respectively). There is also a significant price difference, $500 to $365.


Are there any differences between these 2 carbs? The limited info I have found online suggests that the carburetors for these 2 years should be interchangeable. Is this the case? If so, why the large price difference?


Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum. This question has come up before, and no one seems to know why the big difference in price, since they are essentially the same carb. Why do you think you need a new one? Unless the body of the carb is broken, all it takes is a rebuild. Might be interested in purchasing the old one if you are looking to get rid of it.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

some internal difference,,
honda is always being pushed to achieve leaner burning machine, they used smaller jets as years progressed and enlarged venturi size 0.8mm between 1st gen and 2nd gen that I do know..

What I can tell you is it is the same except for?

turned out quite easy to identify some differences
comparing 2006 to 2007 parts lists side by side the bodies, float chamber set, and float chamber gasket part numbers are different,, All other part # match between years..

Just as an fyi, the carb for my 2016 also has a different part number. So it seems Honda continued making changes, maybe even right up to the end of Rebel 250 production.

Honda may change the part number when they use a different part supplier. Doesn't necessarily mean the specs for that part aren't exactly the same. In 2013-16, on the air/fuel (pilot) screw they removed the tab, recessed it, and put a cover over it. Other than that, I'm not aware of any differences in the carbs, and I think the older screws with the tab cap will fit carbs that come with the recessed screw.

I do see that carb kits on ebay are listed as either 1996-2012 or 2013-2016, which leads me to think there may be differences in those years. But again, that may be the kit supplier. I'm going to order a 2014 bowl gasket from Honda and see if it is different from earlier 2nd gen models.

I did notice the different part numbers for some of the components, but wasn't able to determine what the actual difference is.

To answer your question flitecontrol, I am leaking gas from the overflow when the bike is off. The needle and float seem to be fine, so I'm thinking it might be the seat. I'll need to take more of a look at it before I am sure.

The brass seat can be polished with a Q-tip and dab of polish, but that's usually not the problem. The rubber tipped float valve will often form a faint ring and/or harden, allowing fuel to overflow. The valves are pretty cheap.

Sounds like the issue I am having with my '09 that had sat for 4+ years. Will watch to see what you find.
