There are some used ones on eBay, but I didn't see any new ones. You can order from any Honda parts outlet to get a factory one but be prepared for sticker shock. I've wondered if a carb from a Harley-Davidson could be made to fit since they are plentiful and you can get some for under $100.

Before you replace the carb, tell us what is wrong with the current one. If it is truly bad, broken, bent, etc. metal, then perhaps you do need a new carb. Most often, however, it is the replaceable rubber parts in the carb that need .... ummm.... replacing :) or the jets need cleaned or the carb needs rejetted/tuned.

May have been my own fault. I cleaned it today and found fuel in the air box. I also changed the oil. It may be from me leaving the petcock in on position. Also a bunch of gas in the oil. when I was putting it back together I saw that the center screw on the petcock was loose.

That center screw may have been your problem. The vacuum line,#8 to the petcock is suppose to open the it up in the on position and prevent it from doing what you described. Was it the screw in the back #30. I'm guessing the one in the front #26 just holds the handle on

Well I got it all cleaned up and back together. No more flooding or dyeing but it idles a bit clunky. I think i need to adjust my air fuel mixture.

I recommend rejetting and tuning the carb using ONLY a Factory Pro jet kit. Also install a Glen's permanent A/F screw and do the pair valve mod using dimpled block off plates.

Check that the carb is jetted correctly for your mods, if any. You will benefit tremendously from a properly tuned carburetor.
