I am looking for a set (or at least the right hand side)of carbs for my 73 CB350 twin. If it matters, it is the K5 I believe (front disk). The choke plate and accelerator plate were cracked when I picked up the thing. I tried getting a set of junk carbs off ebay and putting the plate in, but then reallized that those are machined to fit or something. The one carb will not close all the way making an idle around 2K rpm (not real good). These can need a rebuild, but I cannot afford a whole lot. Thanks for any help.

john, where are you?? i have alot of spare parts. i can send you some junk with good choke and throtle plates if youd like. they should all be universal. ive never had a problem with parts not fitting from one to another. and if they were cracked, id look at them really closely. theres a reason internal parts like that broke. i dont have anything all togther that would bolt right up, but i have anout parts to build some. let me know if you want some pices to try again.

Joe, thanks for the offer. I read somewhere that you were not supposed to interchange the plates because they wouldn't fit right. Maybe I should just pull the carbs and see if I can readjust the offending plate so it will close all the way. If that doesn't work, I will let you know. By the way I am up in Wisconsin.

my dad chopped off his fingers in 1980-something. we had to move from nc to florida so theyd heal right...something about the altitude and circulation. anyway, way to go fingers.
