    I bought a 79 Z50 from a guy last year. The engine is from a CT70. The carb is a keihin, but it is not the usually square carbs for a CT70. I know keihin made round carbs for the CT70, but this carb does not have a choke or petcock on it. I have a few pictures I will post, and am hoping somebody can tell me what carb this is. Just trying to find out if I should just try to get a aftermarket carb or stick with this one.

    A carb with no choke??! No choke plate/flapper inside?

    IDK...I think I'd find a known carburetor. That one is probably from a lawn mower or something.

    Thanks for the reply. What carb would be recommended for a CT70 motor in a 79 Z50?

    You may want to poke around on e-Bay or DRATV's site to pick a carb that will work (and fit) to your manifold and still yet allow room to install an air filter.

    I'm not sure which manifold is on your bike, but you'll need to match the center to center dimension of your manifold to know which carbs will fit.

    The most typical style for a CT70 is the one shown on DrATV's site for $34.83. The C-C on this carb should be 48mm.
