After reading all the carb threads is seems most places offer a 4160 for $450+, yet this ite offers the 4160, marine..... for $269, so whats the catch..... is it too good to be true?

and yes we think i need a new carb, MC dealer has been fusing and rebuilding mine and yet still not happy with its idle. We don't know if the previous owner messed with jetting or other, we fuel screw has no reaction at idle so tuning is not easy, and one of the plugs has rusted out which was replaced with solder... so buy a new or keep paying the hourly rate to trouble shoot... i say buy a new one and at this price why not????

Confused!!!!!!!!!!!
First set of carbs shown are refurbs, and second set are new carbs, yet, I don't even see listed, a $269 carb, unless the $20 discount special applies to the 4160?

Right your quote pertains to the reman carbs. i called again, they guaranteed new not remaned and they say they build there carbs themselves. I took the chance and ordered one will see what i get, but they guaranteed NEW.

Hmmmm....... I wonder if their term "new" is the same as mine.....:confused:


Not saying it doesn't look like a good deal......If it is exactly what you were told, it probably is.

What would be wrong with a rebuilt/new?

REBUILT= You never know........
NEW = NEW

Again, not saying anything is wrong with this. I myself, when my carb was giving me trouble (2nd to last boat) I found a mech. that had alot of carb experinence, rebuilt the carb, then had him take it out and lake test and tune it.
