Anybody have a good carb body for sale? Mine is cracked. That's why it's running so lean.

It's too bad to patch. Anyone have one? It's an 89 btw.

:( Bummer. If you are committed to replacement and can accept a little temporary red-neck repair you can always goop- up the old one with RTV silicone and keep riding until a replacement carb is at hand.

Sure is. I'm just going to get a carb off of eBay. There is a nice one I'm looking at. I'm not even on the tw anyone. Just preparing it for a family member. No worries, the forum is still home. And I plan on buying another TW someday.

I would be interested in seeing where the crack is and learning how it got cracked. I have seen a few that had the float posts broke off and a couple that had a corner of the float bowl broken but never have see a cracked body.

I'd buy the $24 China carb off ebay I've used 2 of those this week on BW200's and they worked fantastic! I then sold the old dirty oem carbs on ebay for $125 each
PL, did you use the stock BW throttle housing and cable without modification?

yes the BW uses the single cable spring return so it's 100% bolt in. The TW requires a little throttle cable conversion work but well worth the effort and not much expense
That's what has me confused. I purchased a throttle cable for a BW200, along with an aftermarket single pull throttle housing. It still wasn't "plug and play". There wasn't enough unsheathed cable for it to work without modification.

All I had to do was use the curved throttle cable guide that cam with the china carb and it worked perfect the final cable adjustment was almost exactly the same as the stock carb

Used the curved guide also...no luck. Had to cut off more cable sheathing to get it to fit.

Alright guys, turns out the stealership wanted to murder me and say that I needed a new carburetor. No. It's just the float bowl!!! Wow. The idle screw part broke off they said. They charged nothing.

You probably found out already that the float bowl isn't available as a separate part.

Might be a good time to experiment with that Chinese carb.

My cheap Chinese ebay carb continues to work flawlessly on my '89 after over a year. Down right pleasant, after all the great gnashing of teeth and hair pulling with the stock carb.

How is the install? And can you post a link? I can't find one
