I have not used them before, but over the years of working on old motorcycles I have learned that if the parts are still available from the dealer get them there first. What do you need? My wing sat for 6 years when I got it, while the carbs were clean when I opened them but there was still some clogging in passageways and jets. I ended up getting several new jets and all new rubber bits from my local dealer and the cost was not bad at all, and it was also nice to know they were all factory parts. I have used aftermarket kits on other bikes before with mixed results, I prefer factory parts when I can get them. Much for our bikes is still available.

Hope this helps.

Aftermarket kits normally don't work. The float bowl gaskets don't fit, o-rings the wrong size, if they come with jets they are the wrong size even if they are marked the same, float valves won't seal, etc. The only one that supplies a good aftermarket product is Randakks.
