Has anyone bought these kits? $31 for 4 Gl1200 carburetor kits?

Sounds too good to be true.

I've used the bargain kits and so far they have worked out fine. I imagine that you will hear about kits that people will call shiat, and those that only use the Randakk parts, but I can't bring myself to pay for them. Per Joe all of the carbs have built-in deficiencies so why not try the cheaper parts? It's $30

True but the rack I have is missing a bit. If I'm successful resurrecting them it will be money well spent. If not it will be money.........well.........spent.

At that price I'd take a chance. If nothing else it would be good experience learning the carbs.

After taking my first shot at rebuilding 1100 carbs last year, I can attest that it is not a hard process if you take your time.
