I haven't, but I've only done 6-10. They seem to work OK even if they get a little stiffer than when new.

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

I did replace the accelerator pump on my first carb rebuild, too stiff and shrunk and the rim wouldn't seat back into the groove.

These may or may not have the OEM chrome cable cover, and if it does, it isn't pristine. The cable cover only came on the first generation bikes and is cosmetic bling. It serves no other purpose.

That said, I do not have a first generation bike to test them on, so they are sold "as is". However, I've cleaned many Rebel carbs and no one has ever reported a problem. I'm asking $135.00 which includes shipping. If you are interested, send me a personal message and we can work out the details.
Hey Flitecontrol, have you got any of those carbs left?

Sorry not to get back to you sooner, but I was out of town and couldn't remember my password/log on. Yes, I have a couple of 1st gen carbs left, but may need to order some parts to complete them. I'll check my box of spare parts and update this post.

Hey Flitecontrol,

Just wondering how you went checking for those parts? I'm keen to buy a carb.

Cheers

I have three first generation carbs, and none of them are complete. The parts they do have won't make a complete carb, so I'm going to need to get replacement parts. I will try to get the needed parts and get them all functional within a month or two. I certainly understand if you want to find another source for your carb.

What parts are needed? I've got a rebuild kit so if its in good condition other than the couple of missing parts, it might be fine.

What parts are in your rebuild kit? It's possible I could scrounge enough parts from the three to get one to the point that your kit would complete it? My price to include shipping was for the continental U.S. Would have to see what shipping to Australia would be.

That kit should do it. You want me to send a partial carb, or you send the kit and I assemble it and return the complete carb?
