    KDX200 carb, anybody got one?

    My KDX200 carb just decided to snap the plastic choke unit off and was hoping to take it out on the weekend.

    Anybody in Aucks got one?

    So just the knob? Safety wire puller. The choke on mine I replaced with an mb50 on. They crossover with about anything. Failing that just wire the plunger down closed and take some engine start spray. Should only need it first thing in the morning
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    Nah its snapped off at the nut. I can get the bike going buy using vice grips to hold the knob up then take it off. Just seems to be running rich with the knob down so wonder if its not closing properly. But wiring it down seems like a good idea.

    the knob and most of the carb parts are common to plenty of other Keihins, personally find a oko and raid it if you cant find a PWK.
    I might have one here of a CR125 if i see it tomorrow you can have it. assuming you cant find one up it the biggest city in NZ

    The threaded part is still in the carb. The nut bit is not attached to the threaded bit anymore.

    I already own 2 unreliable euro bikes......

    Same bit as any other Keihin of the era only in a Kawasaki bag.

    You don't need to buy it from Kawasaki, Kawasaki don't make carbs, you buy it as a Keihin PWK carb part, possibly even some of the PWK knock off parts might fit

    I remember when my Mikuni TM28 arived without a choke, a Choke out of a keihin 18mm off a H100 fitted straight on.
