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?

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.
