Anybody know why honda would have 2 different part numbers for the same part on the same make/model/year bike?

I am looking at the carb intake rubbers for the 1976 cj360T and honda has 2 parts numbers listed for the same part and both are listed as available. otherwise the part looks identical. Any idea why they did this?

the thing is this doesn't look like a superceeded part number. I was looking at honda parts direct's fiche and it literally shows both parts on the fiche. Normally when there is a superceede it is indicated in red on the part number.

jack,

the cj is the stripper cafe racer model of the cb series - kick start only a wide ratio roadrace style five speed instead of a close ratio 6 speed, a 2 into 1, braced frame, and bodywork that looks like a 75-78 cb750F. It is also lighter than the cb360 and cl360. Other than the no starter and the 5 speed the motor is the same as the cb/cl 360s. The CJ is kinda rare because it was only made for 2 years 75-76, and only in one color (dark red with blue and gold graphics). The part I need is the rubber going from the carb into the head.

Ken,

that is the weird part both par numbers have a 000 third set of codes:

http://www.hondaparts-direct.com/fiche_section_detail.asp

one is: 16211-369-000
the other is: 16211-403-000

both appear on the fiche picture. The later looks like it takes an o-ring while the former uses a gasket. my only though on this is they changed the design mid season and offered both parts. The later part because of the o-ring is also 71 cents more expensive.

if you look on the fiche it is both part #8 and part #9.

I am going to go out on a whim here and go with the cb360 part number since the motors seem to be the same (atleast use the same head). that is the 369 number.
