Zenith/Bendix is still open in VA. Call for a dealer to get the part. I think the whole new carb is less than $200.

WTB. Hens teeth, rocking horse crap, or C ratio clutch gear & 4th gear for pre-70 900. Andrews or HD. Or anyone willing to do the DR DICK mod on the later gears and sell them.

Harry, I can't remember which one was used in the "C" ratio. Here, I'm guessing that's what you mean and not just a "close" ratio setup.
I am pretty sure I have an 18 and a 20 clutch gear, would have to look to see if I have the C/S gears as well.
I presume your going to race this as these aren't really good ratios for stock street bikes.
And the 20 is probably only good for places like Daytona.

Yep, close ratio.

No racing, unless I misunderstood which gears need to be changed, I only hear good things about the C ratio 4th for street use.

Please correct me, my wallet is crying in the corner.
