Who makes the carbs for the trx300fw? Keihin?

This is the one on there, Made in Japan. Remember when that meant crap?

Anyone recognise this? Any good?
something else just caught my eye about the second pic ?, the fuel drain screw in on the other side ?, where is, on a oem Honda carb ?, the drain screw in on the same side as the primer bulb !..lol. yep..deff a china carb !.

I get OEM parts for my early Fourtrax whenever possible, esp carbs fuel pumps CDI. Most importantly I buy parts needed to restore performance--I expect OEM to get me there.

Yeah, you're right, not OEM. When I went to adjust the pilot jet I tried to use my 90 degree tool with the "D" socket. Didn't fit. I had to remove the carb to see why and the jet is a straight screwdriver head. Not OEM. Good news is it's working.

the pilot jet screw is a flat blade slot, even oem Honda carbs have this on them.
