FYI - Hitachi Carb Parts

I found a source for carb bowl gaskets for the Hitachi carbs used on 84 to 87 virago 700, 750, 1000, and 1100's.

Yamaha and Hitachi had obsoleted the parts and would not supply them.
Asselstine's Yamaha in Blackstock, Ontario found an aftermarket supplier to provide them and they fit perfectly.

Asselstine's number is 905-986-4437.

I believe that other owners have also experienced this problem, so I wanted to offer this information to be made available somewhere on the web site for others to benefit.

Note: This is old information so don't be suprised if the number doesn't work anymore. If the number isn't good do a google search for the business. Peace!
