Keihin Carb rebuilding

Hey guys,

I don't know too much about where to get parts for carburetors, but does anyone know where i can get new diaphragms and gaskets for the the floatbowl on a set of two keihin carbs for a '72 cb350?

I've been trying google, but all the results I get are unclear. Are all floatbowl rings and diaphragms built the same size? Keep in mind i'm still new to this stuff...

Also, where can I get some new seals for for my bike's pet**** (also keihin)? I accidentally sprayed some cleaner on the seal between the pet**** and the tank, and now it's pretty much disintegrated...

Yes, I have tried Bikebandit.com all I could find under "keihin" were jets.

If I just buy any standar "carb Rebuild Kit", will it fit on my Carbs?

Frankly, I think I need to buy keihin specific Diaphragms because the rubber on those don't (at least they don't appear) come off, and I think the only way to replace the rubber is to buy a new main needle assembly.

But if I'm wrong (which I really hope I am!!!), please tell me.

Go to bikebandit and use the OEM part finder. Insert your bike info; year, make and model and then find the micro-fiche of the carbs. The diaphragms should be on this. If not then bikebandit doesn't have them.http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmot...m9197sch396305
