There is a rumor(self started-of course) that there is a guy "in Houston" named "Albert" that has more hyo crap than he should. Maybe you could look him up to see if he has what you need if you can't source them elsewhere.

And I see you are in Tx. From the looks of that bike(just saw the pictures) you are in Dallas. They do you F'd up SHIRT up there. ;-)

Haha, no, currently I'm going to college in Lubbock. I got this bike for the gas milage, parking, and fun. My truck gets 8 at best, so it's definitely not feasible. Right now I need a new right hand clip on handlebar. I'll be pretty set once I get that.

$50 on Ebay.

OR....
 Order a Chinese set of 51mm clip-ons ($35) then sell your left one on Ebay for $50 and re-coop that money.
done deal.

Haha, that second option is what I am planning on doing. I actually found some for 27, and aneeded aluminum brake reservoir for 6, and free shipping. I have to wait until mid October but 33 bucks for over 200 worth of parts if I would have bought them here. I also ended up buying a new 30 dollar long board because I broke mine in half.

Update: I have ordered new handlebars and a brake reservoir. I didn't get new controls so I am probably going to mount two toggles and a momentary switch to the side of the bike for engine on/off, ignition, and then start. I am going to try to get a petcock or do SOMETHING for the fuel, and I also need to rebuild the front carb, but if I have time I will do both. I am almost positive the float on the front is sticking open letting the tank of gas drain into the oil every time I turn it off.

Does anybody have any tips for rebuilding carbs?

I have no experience with carbs, so I will not be much help. What I can say is:

Forum member mad8vskillz has brand new carb assemblies for sale.

whygostock.com have rebuild kits.

The workshop manual has a typo on the float height.
