    I was tearing down a Honda carburetor and found that the Piston Vacuum had a tear in it, I priced the piston vacuum from Honda and it was close to 70.00 bucks. So my question is, can I buy a clone carburetor and switch out the part that I need, as the whole clone carburetor is half the price of the single part that I need. Another question, can the jets be switched out also?.

    If you buy the direct replacement clone carb, Just install the whole thing... I haven't had any issues with the clones......
