If you are like me, the first place you go to find a part for your bike is the scrap yard. Unfortunately, it's gamble whether or not they will have looking for and the OEM alternative can be hard on the wallet.
As many of you know, my summer project this year was the rebuild of my RZ350. After completing the assembly, I ran into a bit of trouble when it came time to get the engine running right. Due to careless neglect, it had been years since I had started the bike and the carburetors had suffered the consequences. Several days and multiple cans of carb cleaner later, I accepted defeat and began my search for replacements.
After numerous unsuccessful calls to my local salvage yards, I moved my search to the Internet. I checked out Ebay, bulletin boards and numerous classified ad sites with no hits. My resources now exhausted, I knew I had no alternative but to save up for a new set.
One month into my "savings" attempt, I received a link submission from Cycle Search International. I surfed over to their site and rekindled my hope when I found the words "We specialize in locating hard to find parts". As fast as I could type, I sent an email to their salesman Adam Goerlitz. Within hours I received a reply letting me know that the search was on. Two days later, I received another email - Cycle Search had found my carbs! I placed my order and received my parts a few days later. When I opened the box, I was thrilled to discover an almost new set of carbs that had even been cleaned. How's that for service!
