i just bought a 82 cm 250 and the carb is missing, they are discontinued, where can i find 1 or is there an aftermarket that will work?:banghead::Thanx:
do you know anywhere where i can find instructions to clean it?Carburetors rarely needs replaced, 90% of the time they just need a thorough cleaning. Sometimes they need new seals and float valve. Once in a great while they will need new diaphragms. Hardly ever does the whole carb need replaced unless the carb body has been damaged or broken.
it would not be so bad if it was a rubber diaphragm carb. mine is a aluminum diaphragm and bust be wore out. had it checked over 2 times by a pro shop and still no luck. we stuck a carb off a durt bike and ran fine. So we are on the lookout for an aftermarket carb that will fit and connect.Carburetors rarely needs replaced, 90% of the time they just need a thorough cleaning.

I just did mine this spring. It's a very easy carb to clean. Just get the schematic diagram from here:do you know anywhere where i can find instructions to clean it?
Hey Chris, any chance I could get you to post some pictures of the throttle side of the carb all hooked up? I need to reattach mine and I want to make sure I'm winding the springs properly and then putting the cables back in the right place. I forgot to grab some pics of mine before I took it off and disassembled it Thanks -Corry (fellow 82' cm250c owner)the cm 250's carb is cake to go through... just pay attention... go pick up a gallon of carb dip... pull it COMPLETELY apart and dip the body and all of the hard parts (no rubber, etc.. just metal parts) overnight... then clean them with a good carb cleaner and blow it out with compressed air. reassemble and set the idle mixture screw ~2.5 turns out to start with.. let it run for a bit (which while ur at it... pull the tank and clean it out... flush it out really well with water... then with rubbing alcohol or gas... if its rusted inside, seal it) Anyways... it took me ~30 minutes or so to pull apart the carb and reassemble... not including the time in the dip can. Ive got a few pics of doing it too... so if you get stuck... just ask. $30 in a good cleaning beats paying for a used carb of unknown condition or paying full price for a new chinese knockoff. Good luck! -Chris
I appreciate it. I may have to do that. I responded on here because previous poster said he had pictures I could definitely use.Hello & welcome to the forum.
I don't know if you noticed, but this thread hasn't been used since mid 2017.
You'd probably get a faster response just starting a new post on this subject.
