I’ve got a 1981 Yamaha 850 Midnight Special and it’s got a broken float post on one of the carb bodies.. I’ve had a bit of trouble tracking down a replacement in descent shape.. this is a triple carb motorcycle.. if I wanted to go with a new carb are there any options? Is finding an old replacement my only option? I’m just figuring if I can put something new on there for reliability I’d like to do so and not have to worry about it.. or.. anyone got a set of carbs for a 1981 Yamaha Midnight Special 850?

Thanks for the quick response! Any thoughts on a new or aftermarket solution? I live in a secluded area so there aren’t any such places near me... i could probobly track one down by calling around but if there is a easier way to acquire a “new” part easily ordered I would consider it...

What kind of carb does it have? Can you posts some photos or the make/model of the carb? (Mikuni, Kehein, etc?)

I have a lot of old carb parts lying around - I might have one.

Edit: Better yet, if you can get me the length and diameter of the pin that might be more helpful. I found the pin online but it's NLA and no one has published the dimensions of it.
