I've done a lot of searching on the internet for a rebuild kit for the 83 vt500c. Does anyone know where i could find one or recommend an aftermarket kit.

I have the Clymer Manual and the carb removed but don't want to get started without a kit.

Thanks,

You can still get Honda parts for this. I use BikeBandit (very expensive!!!) just to see if they're still available, they seem to have the most up to date fiche that'll show the dreaded DISCONTINUED parts.

http://houseofmotorcycles.bikebandit.com/partsbandit/oem_schematic_view~schem_dept_id~2340935~section_dept_id~1~section_dept_name~OEM+(Stock)+Parts~dept_type_id~2~model_dept_year~1983~model_dept_mfr~Honda~model_dept_id~2340930~model_dept_name~VT500C.asp

You'll need item 1 & 2, gasket set and float needle/seat ( 2 each for 2 carbs), maybe more when you get it open.

To actually ORDER them, use Service Honda

BikeBandit
#1 $24.25
#2 $47.07

Service Honda
#1 $17.16
#2 $27.68

They're the cheapest place I've found. Their fiche system take a little getting used to, but worth the effort. Another place I've used is Powers Motorsports, their prices are good to.

Good luck

Thank you for the help. I will check out the websites and get the parts I need. I plan on rebulding the carbs shortly once I get the final parts of the bike disassembled and organized so I can rebuild.
