    New carb or rebuild old?

    I have a 96 that needs a carb. For my 99 i just bought a new carb and it works great now. But there is a huge price difference, read $200 difference, beween a rebuild kit from pro cycle and a new carb. Is an older carb that has been neglected worth rebuilding or should i just shell out the price for a new carb?

    Also while im at it, is there a replacement carb that could be swapped?

    As long as the internals are not severely corroded, the carb body isn't cracked, or the float posts broken, a rebuild should make it like new.

    ...and as long as you don't mess up anything during the rebuild.

    There is no direct carb swap without buying extra parts that would make the total cost as much as replacing the original carb.
