If you are after a new one check out OKO carbs. The should have what you need.
I've seen a few of those. Wasn't sure about the quality

Decent if you get a genuine OKO. Surprisingly there are knockoffs.

OKO make a heap of replacement carbs for bultaco bikes and such.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Are there any pre-2007 ninja 250 owners following who could help me out? I'm planning on using a set of headers, but wanted to make sure they will hang low enough to clear the engine and such. Just need a measurement of how far down they go before turning and how far from the head they go before turning. Thanks!

Couple of updates from today.
New bars are on! Went with super bike bars. I like em.

Bad news is the speedometer isn't working. Put a new cable on, lifted the front wheel and spun it as fast as I could but got nothing. I'm going to look for a small speedo on eBay or at a salvage yard this weekend.
Swapped out the shift shaft, which was quick and easy.

Also mocked up foot pegs. Plan is to use stock 250 pegs swapped left to right, so they bend back instead of forward. Gives a more standard position. I'm going to need to shorten the brake pedal for sure, and I need to scrounge up a shifter to figure out if that'll need shortening too.

I'm planning on using the clutch perch and controls from a GS550 I parted out. This will go with a brake perch and lever from a Suzuki.. Some kind of RM I believe? The stock right control is toast. I'll pick up a universal throttle and use a push button I have laying around for the starter. Probably a toggle for the kill switch.

The speedo on my 72 CL100 was stuck. (sat in a shed since 1978)  Wouldnt work w new cable.  Had nothing to loose.  Except the $ for a new one.  So, I popped it open, sprayed a little penetrant on the do-hickies, gave things in there a few flicks.  Been working great ever since.

How'd you go about popping it open?

HA.

That one had the stainless bottom to it w a couple screws.  pulled screws and gently worked the ring off w a screwdriver.  The black plastic body came out w a couple small cracks.  But only under the stainless ring.  Dont show at all, once reassembled.

Just took a look at the speedo on the old ladys Twinstar CM200.  Looks to be about the same deal, only the bottom cover appears to be black plastic rather than stainless steel.
