hey guys, i have a 1982 honda ft500 ascot that i bought not to long ago and i have moved onto fixing the carburetor issue, the carb on it is one giant piece of crap! broken parts all over the place. my question is....if i were to get an aftermarket carburetor for it which one should i get? take into consideration that this bike is a cheap bike and i only paid 300.00 for it. so with that said i dont want to dump an extremely nice race carb on here that cost more than the bike lol

Where the hell was that 90 dollar carb when I was looking for one.
I got a 83 500c, almost the same bike. Mine had a torn diagphram and that alone was 90 dollars, for one. Wound up buying a used set for 150, got lucky and their not complete trash!
But I think your right, unless your gonna redo the bike completely, I'd stay away from any aftermarket high performance chrome dipped piece of junk.
