True. K&L and Keyster offer good kits on ebay.

I skipped the dealers and local parts shop, they order from either babbitsonline or cheapcycleparts (or similar) themselves. One even ordered parts from another dealer 40 miles away that then ordered from an online parts website.

flitecontrol Me too. Except my most local dealership sucks when it comes to customer relations. I've ordered parts from them several times, and they always say they will call when they come in. But they never do. I have to call them. I made it easy for them the last time and got the part number from cheapcycleparts.com. Parts guy said he would have to confirm it was the correct number and would call me back shortly as he had a customer with him. I assured him that was the right number and asked him to order it. Said he'd have to check it first. Four hours later, no call back. I called and the guy told me it wasn't the right part number for my Rebel. Idiot. Told him I was going to order that part number from another dealer about 20 miles farther away and if it didn't fit I would let him know (it did). I sent the dealership an email outlining my frustration and why and telling them I was done with them.

Sorry, rant/hijack over.

Exactly my thinking. The difference in the diaphragms is too much, but for the other parts I'm definitely going local.

The diaphragms are definitely cheaper from eBay, but the paper gasket is actually cheaper from the shop (same price but no shipping charge) and the gasket set is $1 more from them than it is on eBay.

Thanks for the list, it helped make sure I didn't miss anything.
I went to two different shops today to get some help finding the parts, and it looks like I'm in for around $300. I found the diaphragms a little cheaper than they had, so I'll order those online. Still $250 all in. I'm still going to get the rebuild kit and the paper gasket from them though, since it's similarly priced and I'd like to thank them for the help. Might tip the guy who helped me out too, as long as it's not one of those weird places where employees can't take tips.

kryton if this is the first true rebuild of an 06 carb, yes replace ALL the rubber bits. the carb to manifold should have both an o-ring and a thick paper gasket, get new ones of them as well.
