I need a CV CARB for a 1994 sportster, any one know where I can get one near me? I am in Berkeley, ca.
When trying to adjust the float, one of the arms that the pin slides into for broken off, now the float hangs by 1 arm and the pin, just put in a big bore kit in the 883, so is a CV CARB from a 1200 going to be the way to go? Any help will be appreciated!

Well, I Jerry rigged the float but I think I'll just put down some $ for a "NEW" one,
Found one on eBay that's" New", nice and shiny, coming from Florida, (wincycle)
should have it by Monday, it comes with jets 45/190, can anyone tell me if I should change to a 180 or keep the 190 or just ride it and see what goes on and tune it from there.
Thanks for listening!

Put the new one on and run it. You should be able to see if it is running rich or not. Jets are pretty easy to change.

Good Luck, and welcome to the board

Thanks for the welcome!
I got the new carb, looking at it, there is no overflow nipple on the float bowl, and no nipple for the hose to the EVAP HOSE that goes behind the oil tank, what do I do with the EVAP hose? As for the overflow-if I need it should I change out with the one from the old carb? Any help would be appreciated!
