Does anyone have any comenets/experience with Saber Cycle's deluxe carb kit. The price looks good and it has all the componets I need but I am concerned about their quality and fit.

I've only ever heard extremely bad experiences from people using the Saber Cycle carb kit. Have a look at the user comments: http://www.goldwingdocs.com/Vendors/Saber_Cycle_880

Saber have a lot of reputation, most of it very bad.. Would definately suggest you try someone else (like Randakks).

Stay away from the kits. I bought a set and the only parts that were any good were the O rings. Whoever manufactures the kits for them has lousy QC program.

From all I have gathered, body parts and such are fine to get from them but when it comes to Carb parts, I'd look elsewhere... Oh I read someone complaining about a water pump they got from them too.. and fan switch too..ect. ect. ect....But you make the choice... :D
