    Who to get a carb kit from

    Me again,
    I have been trying to get my GP1200 to idle better, haven't found any vacuum leaks. I have the manual for adjustments. I have tried adjusting the carbs, the linkage is correct but it just does not want to idle. I have replace the plugs and the fuel is fresh so at this point I think rebuilding my cars is my next step. When I googled carb kits there seems to be a hundred kits out there. Can anyone recommend who makes the better kits ?
    Thank you, THE OLD MAN

    What year Gp1200? Either way, stick with GENUINE Mikuni brand kits, accept nothing else...

    If your is an early one, non PV engine, you have standard SBN 44 carbs, and need these kits;

    If you have a later GP1200, with a Power Valve engine, you have SBN "I" Series carbs, and need these kits;

    I strongly suggest replacing the needle and seat as well in each carb. I have these also.

    Thank you John, I have a habit of restoring anything I buy. Its just me. I restore everything. My ski is a 98 so it should be the sbn 44 carbs. Do you know the stock needle and seat size, I havent pulled them yet I like to get my parts first. It only has 135 hrs on it so it spent a lot of time sitting. I have been working on my parts list as I learn about the ski. I found a rear trim cable finaly. The people on this forum have been a great help. One of these days Ill post some pics.
