    I'm not sure what parts the previous owner put in this carb but I'm sure their not the right ones.so what replacement carb do you all suggest? Bike is a 1987 minitrail 70. Thank you.

    We don't see many 1987 models, in fact, it's been many years since I last saw a decent photo of one. They weren't sold in the US from 1983-1990. Please...post lots of good detail shots!!!

    Best guess, yours had the same carb as the 1982 model. That said, unless you're going for purist originality...which would be really cool, with this rare, "non-existant" model...I'd install a hondatrailbikes K0 reproduction carb. It uses Keihin parts, so no prblem with future rebuilds. And, unlike the other `80s-later "emission" carburetors, the early style (with the rectangular float bowl) is very adjustable.

    Oops my fault. I read your reply and discover my fault in the post. It's not a 87 but a 78. My fault. Sorry. With that being said. Carb ideas for a 78 or is there anywhere I can purchase oem parts for a origin keihin36a.
