Default Yamaha Moto 4

Recently bought a Yamaha Moto 4 80cc I think itís about an 86. Sat for about 8 years. Took the carb all apart cleaned it fresh gas some sea foam and stabilizer. Sheís running good. Needs a front tire and battery which I have ordered.
My question now is finding a new carb. This one is working good but someone has overtightened the bolts and stripped the threads on the flange. Itís working good enough now but would like to have a back up.
The only ones Iíve seen or found were on Amazon. Has anyone had any luck with these or similar ones?
Thanks in advance

They are more than likely Chinese.

I would look into having the stripped threads repaired before buying a Chinese made carburetor. You could carefully drill them out one size larger and re-tap or have thread inserts installed.

Was hoping for a new OEM carb. I can repair this carb if I have to.
Iíll keep looking in the mean time Iíll try a repair on this carb.
Thanks Boys!

Look on ebay and see if you can find a used one.

Never had luck on eBay. Most that are posted are Chinese parts. Had a bad experience with those.
