Hello all! I am the proud new owner of a white 1984 Yamaha CA50. Overall, the scooter is in nice shape. I have it at a friends house, who happens to be a mechanic, so I am unable to show to beauty off at this point. My friend has owned the scooter for years before I bought it from him, and he got it from his grandfather. The scooter has roughly 1600 miles on it and has been kept in a garage for the majority of its life. Whether its a good thing, or a bad, the scooter has not been driven much. The last time it was driven was about three years ago to go to the convenient store and back. I got it home, changed the oil, drained the gas, put new gas in it, bought a new battery and surprisingly it started right up. It bogs down a bit and obviously needs to have the carb cleaned, along with the drive belt replaced. Unfortunately, I am having much difficulty in finding replacement parts for it, specifically a carb rebuild kit (and drive belt). Anyway someone could weigh in on the issue and point me in the right direction to finding these parts? I would greatly appreciate any input, and I sure am excited to get this hog on the road. Thank you.

Checking Cheapcycleparts.com I find that there are a few Carb parts that you could order depending on what you need. As to a belt if you have the original one measure it and look for an aftermarket one of the same length and width. I believe that's the best you could do next to scouring Ebay and getting lucky on parts.

Good Luck

Thanks for the info. Ive checked cheapcycleparts.com along with partzilla.com and have had some luck. Unfortunately these sites are fairly limited. Anyone else have any suggestions? I really want to get this thing on the road.

Looks like most carb parts are still available, here is a link.http://www.yamahapartshouse.com/oempart ... carburetor
The belt appears to no longer be in stock, here is a link to the part number. http://www.yamahapartshouse.com/oempart ... carburetor
Using the original part number, you should with a little creative internet research be able to translate the part number into a width, length and sidewall angle. Once you have those measurements, you should be able to locate a replacement that is very close. Yes it will require research, work and searching, that is a normal process when working on antiques.

Thanks for the input. I'm still only coming up with an incomplete list of available parts. As far as the carb, is there possibly i new carb thats readily available that is compatible? I was thinking I may be able to switch it out with a totally new one? As far as the drive belt is concerned, I will take the existing one off and just try to find the closest belt in size and hope that works. What do you think?
