His kits are the best
Found this kit which has pretty much everything I need for my carbs.
(Basically all the rubber parts)
Honda CX500 & Variants - Randakk Master Carb Overhaul Kit® | Randakk's Cycle Shakk
Sounds like OEM is best, but I've had a hard time finding all these parts or for less than a few hundred dollars for all of them.
Price on this seems pretty reasonable.
Just want to know if anyone's used this and/or if I should stay away.
When you order, be sure to spend the extra money for the instruction booklet. I have done carbs before, but not these specific ones, so I decided to buy the book because I want to rebuild the carbs 100% correct. I was surprised at how detailed it was, and I am glad I purchased it. I have not done the carbs yet as I am still in mock-up mode on the bike, but when I get around to them the book and all the pictures will be a great help!

Randakk's kit was perfect. Just finished using a set on my carb rebuild. Too bad today's high is only -2 deg F or else I would be putting them in, lol

Thanks, looks like a unanimously good idea then
I'm in the UK and I've been buying and using the kits and from,"GeorgeFix" for years,
HONDA, FUEL SYSTEMS items in GEORGEFIX'S MOTORCYCLE PARTS store on eBay!
I'm sure Randakks stuff is good but I find the prices hyped.
My 10 cents.
I won't miss the Human Race,well maybe,"Fish-and-Chips"
Randall Washington's kits are the very best I have ever used... I have never experienced a failure of any of his stuff... I have rebuilt several carbs with his kits... All have been 100% successful with no issues...
