So you see nothing wrong with this...because you are not buying a Mikuni hsr42. Yet they list the manufacturer part number. Brand? Unbranded


Condition: New Brand: Unbranded
Type: Carburetor Manufacturer Part Number: HSR42 TM42-6PK
Warranty: Yes UPC: 884804095970


https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Mikuni-...edirect=mobile.

People buy this crap thinking they're getting a good deal on a mikuni hsr 42 when they're actually getting a cheap imitation that only looks like an hsr42. It's not even made of the same materials and certainly not supported by mikuni.

A brand new Mikuni carb for 97 bucks? Yeah right...Well, if it is too good to be true, then it often is.

My point is, it's not where it made that count it's how the quality is controlled. As previously quoted, you can have crap from everywhere. What count is how much a supplier or vendor want to screw you. Yes you can make a part with cheap material or the best there is where ever you want. I support the good vendors who give me the most for my hard earn $. If he start selling me ch.t then he will not get my canarian dollar no more.
