Carbs off eBay?

Post by passion4 »

I’m sure I remember someone recommending a seller for good quality refurbished Dellorto carbs on eBay, but cant remember who it was? Or am I better sticking to Eurocarb?

Thanks 🙂 your experience all good?

Cost wise you’d need to add all the extra bits in as opposed to say the Eurocarb VWK11 Type 1 twin Dellorto DRLA36 kit – CSP & K&N

Experience was great. Jetted to my asking and looked like brand new. Got manifolds and linkage off other suppliers , best deal at the time was heritage for manifolds and vintage speed for the best linkage.
