Title: carb insulators
Post by: cbx1260cc on May 18, 2018, 07:32:07 AM
Looking for a set of Carb insulators (rubbers) that enable carbs to be attached to cylinder head.

OEM Part numbers are:

                               16212-KAF-000 x2

                               16213-KAF-000 x2

Will take aftermarket as well.

E-Bay listings from China etc all do NOT seem to fit (even those that say HONDA CB-1 (CB400F)1989-1991.

Can anyone provide a source for these?

Thank you

CMSNL appears to have 16213-KAF-000 in stock but not 16212.

You most likely will never find NOS carb "A" insulators, I had the same problem 2 years ago.  I did find Honda NOS "B" insulators and bought four after looking over my originals very closely and not finding a significant difference between them.  Bike runs just fine with all "B" insulators installed.

Type A insulators have been unavailable for years and I did look at getting them re-manufactured but the costs were ridiculous.

Sugs /  members,

Is it POSSIBLE then that one of the aftermarket suppliers products will then fit?

Here's an example of what I refer to:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carburetor-Insulator-for-Honda-CBR400-NC23-87-89-NC29-90-94-CB-1-CB400F-1989-91/162859636664?hash=item25eb30d7b8:g:Yq4AAOSwvGlaYaBl


IF they will work would be a Godsend.


Would appreciate comments and possibly info from a member who has tried and -hopefully-been successful.

Kind regards

Rick

those are the cheap Chinese copies. I have used them on the CB-1 & NC23 and they work but aren't the best fit as the airbox needs tweeking & nudging to line up with the front frame mount

Pod70,

THANK YOU for that insight and helpful information based on personal experience.

At LEAST there is SOME HOPE.

Appreciate the courtesy of the reply.
