Does anyone know if Yamaha used a Keihin CV carb on any year or model bike ???
I'm looking for a close by source for CV parts. Got a Yamaha dealer 2 blocks from here, nearest H-D dealer is over 20 miles in any direction.

Not sure about Yamaha, but Kawasaki used a CV.

All the jap bikes used them long before Harley. I guess it depends on what you need. Needles,jets and gaskets will interchange. Other parts will take some research.

Yamaha doesn't use a Keihin. Almost all Honda's do! Most all Jap bikes since the 70's use some manner of CV carburetor, but Keihin is for the most part Honda.

My 74 GT 750 Suzuki has 3 CVs on it. Manual says CM 40. Not sure if that's the size.

Wow ! If those are 40s that's a lot of carb for a 750 !

My Kawasaki Vulcan uses a CVK 36 , parts are far more expensive for it than Harley CV parts and no kits are available either. I paid $48 for a needle & float only available from Kawasaki.
