Buying a dirtbike carb or carburettor, should be a fairly straight forward task.
First check out the manufacturer’s websites or stores, and if you find these spares too expensive it’s a good idea to check out independent dealers.
Local stores are ideal, as are independents on the web.
When buying a new carb, its an absolute must to have the correct make and model of the bike and make it clear to the store what you want.
Have the model number handy or any other helpful info that will help you get the right part, first time. Remember if its incorrect, you will only have to return it, leading to more time that your dirt bike is off the track.
A dirtbike carb or more prominently known as a dirtbike carburetor is such an important item to get right. A number of offroad dirtbikes use aftermarket dirtbikes parts from an online dirtbike store. The value they offer can be tremendous; whether it’s for an mx dirtbike or an old used dirtbike you’re bringing back to life.
We take a look at a few of the best dirtbike classifieds in finding the right dirtbike products for your racing dirtbikes.
Ebay was an obvious choice and we started here – we soon found a 125cc Carburetor Air Filter Set for $21.99. This was a brand new OEM replacement part, and for this price, there is no need to buy a used dirtbike carburator.
What about finding good mini dirtbike spares? While still on ebay, there was a mini moto pitbike carb for £9.99, in the uk. The carb was made for most models of 49 – 47 cc rides. Then before we went, a MIKUNI 29mm CARBURETOR KIT for a Thumpstar Pitbike, caught our eye as it was only priced at £34.99 (and should fit most bikes).
All items should be checked with the vendor they will definitely fit your own dirt bike of course.
