The second site had no 1st gen carbs or parts, but they will sell me a 2nd gen intake and carb for me to go through for $200. No a bad deal at all.

Those are all bit cheaper. I still like the idea of a new one though.....

I found a used vacuum piston complete with OEM needle (he says) for $50. A part of me wants to figure out why mine runs so poorly, just for the experience and just to know.

Couldn't hurt to have an extra vacuum piston. Is there anything you can use to preserve the daiphragm?

Found a couple of first generation needles. Both have the same number, 79T. Hope this helps.

Thanks flitecontrol. My needle says 79u but I think it's the same. It works great.

Keyster needles have a number beginning with D.

Advise only using genuine Keihin fuel metering parts. My bike ran terrible with the Keyster needle. Others on different forums for different bikes have issues with them also.
