Whats wrong with them? If you have clogged jets you can clean them real nice. If your seals are bad just buy those. Give us a little more info. Good luck on finding what you need!

Full rebuild kits are seldom required for general maintenance and cleaning. If you are careful removing the float bowl, that gasket stays intact. Other than the inlet needle/seat and gaskets, there aren't many other replacable parts that go bad. Like Josh said, clean 'em up and put 'em back together and go ride

Efi's tend to be more reliable, but harder to work on and alot more expensive to fix! Good luck on the carbs by the way! Make sure t read through how to do it before you take them apart. Know what your going to be doing. Its not as hard as it looks. The first time i did it i was thinking it was going to be hard, but it wasnt. And i wasnt going off anything i just did it!

Like others have said, other than the float bowl gasket and needle/seat assembly there is very little that wears out or goes bad on a carb. They are easy to disassemble and clean. Clean them good once and then go over them again to make sure they are clean. Install and ride.

+1 on not needing a kit.

A guy local to me has an Ultra that he wanted the carbs completely rebuilt on. I asked him to pull the carbs and give them to me... He gave me three carbs, the choke assembly, and the throttle cables (more than I had expected).

I pulled everything apart and cleaned thoroughly (used a dip, 12 hours for each carb body and metal parts, then sprayed with carb cleaner after a rinse in hot water). Put everything back together and replaced all three of the trap lines (they were broken) with new black fuel line from NAPA. Sync'ed the slides, adjusted the plungers, and then installed the whole setup in the sled for him.

Took some adjusting to get the idle right, but it ran nice. His cost? $25 to cover the fuel line and the consumables for cleaning.
