Welcome to the forum from Seattle.

Perhaps some local riding friends might be able to locate these parts for you. I highly recommend the GWRRA groups (Goldwing Road Riders Association) to find folks who ride wings in your area. When you attend chapter meetings you will find friendly folks that ride the same motorcycle you do, and like the members of this forum, they know their motorcycle.

You can find a local chapter by going their website

Welcome to the site! One of our members actually used bottle caps for carb tops. Not everyone's cup of tea, but was kinda cool.

hi gator, we just jb weld a nice shiney quarter in position from the inside of the cap, just enough to be air tight from the outer atmosphere. it's a good conversation topic an a possible emergency fund if really in distress.

well i got bored a couple hours ago and took the carbs off the bike, well i have found my issue one of the arms are broke that hold the float in place,and the float was stuck so now i need to find a carb
Is it the arm on the float itself? If it is and it's a brass float, it can be soldered.
