Hi Dave
I have a set of carbs taken off my Honda CB550K3 it has a manual choke lever on the L/H side off the carb.
the cabs are Keihin these where only taken off my bike about 4 weeks ago If you are interested I can send you some pictures via emaiL. I would be looking for £150 for them

Best Regards
Nigel

If they are off a K3 they'll be PD carbs.

The 550F uses 069A carbs and are totally different.

My BIL took his carbs apart the other day, for some reason he had 1x627B carb (No1) and 3x069A carbs. I have supplied him with another bank of carbs correct for his 500, when he gives me the old carbs I'll see if there is a No2 069A carb as I'll be breaking the bank and will be selling the spares off them.

Where's the corrosion Dave?

Hiya
Not received your pm as yet I have checked the trash & spam to see if they are in there by miss take and they are not so not sure where its gone . I got a complete set of 4 that I are up for sale if that helps you but as Ken has pointed out they are different to yours if you where planning just changing single one .
You have to ask Ken if mine would fit your bike as a bank of 4 ?

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi Nigel , yes I just wanted to change one as a whole bank are getting pricey , as Ken pointed out I do not think yours will fit a 550f

Dave. I'm away at the moment but I have a load of seperate carb bodies from 069A's at home. If you PM Graham and tell him which one you need, he can have a look for you.
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

They might not be wrong Nigel. If they have a choke lever on the left they ain't PD carbs. Whether they are 069a or 627b or even 022a is relevant though.
