Randakk Master Carb Overhaul Kit
Randakk’s 1982-1983 Honda FT500 Ascot Master Carb Overhaul Kit

Here's another Randakk exclusive item designed to help you put your FT500 carb in top working order. Randakk Master Carb Overhaul Kit ™ includes everything you need (and nothing you don't!) for a comprehensive FT500 carb overhaul. This kit is engineered for single cylinder Ascots only.

Contents of Randakk's FT500 Master Carb Kit

Kit is proprietary to Randakk's – you won't find this available anywhere else at any price. Randakk's sourced the best available parts from 3 continents and combined them in a unique combination that represents real value. Kit is appropriate for any 1982-1983 FT500 with original carb.

Note: The round o-rings in each of our Master Kits are made of Viton rather than ordinary nitrile (Buna-N) as found in other aftermarket carb kits. Viton is superior to nitrile in terms of:

  • Heat tolerance (400 degrees F vs. 250 degrees F)
  • Compression set
  • Permeation

Did you know that one good case of severe engine overheating can ruin the carb o-rings found in ordinary kits? Randakk o-rings are the best available! See Viton Proof here.

Also, Randakk's o-ring sizes are precise. They’re equivalent to the exact sizes specified by Honda for each fitment. Not "close-enough" sizes as in many of the other aftermarket kits I've evaluated.

Only the highest quality items are included. The kit has been thoroughly tested. Collection represents the best value available in the market. Trust Randakk's, you'll need everything in this kit to do a proper overhaul of your carbs.
