|Don, An update on the (K-72-S) diaphragms: I installed these diaphragms on 3 Hitachi HSC34 Carburetors. These were
standard issue carburetors on Yamaha XS850 motorcycles from 1980 and 1981. The groove diameter on the Carb itself
is actually 73mm, but the dish and slide groove measurements are the same. Also, the key is slightly smaller on the
Hitachi than it is on the Keihin. With a little trimming of the key, I was able to install them with little issue, and they work
In case anyone asks in the future, These are a great fit for the XS850 with Hitachi Carbs.

|I have a '82 xj750 Maxim. I have purchased 2 of these H-68 in August the same bike and they work great. Kevin
|I have received the diaphragms today in good order. 6 days!! Must be a record for items sent to Australia. Your package
actually arrived before a similar sized item I ordered from my home State of Queensland! Thank you again, I will be ordering
K-78 diaphragms for my CB360 soon. Kind regards, Adam James
|Hi just wanted to leave some feedback on the H-68 slide diaphragms I purchased from you: they work great on my 1981 Seca
750 rh .. This has to be one of the best products I have ever bought. Saved me a lot of money and I look forward to doing
business with you in the future. Thank you, Cory Silver
|Thank you so much. The H-68 diaphragms worked great and fixed my Honda Shadow. The 20 dollars I spent on the diaphragms
sure beat the 140 dollars quoted everywere else. Keep up the good work
Oh, and by the way they worked/went on a 1983 Honda Shadow 500 with a dual keihin carb with metal slides thanks again, Chris
|I purchased two H-78 for my 1982
Yamaha Virago 750 and they work
perfect. Saved me lots of money. You are
awesome. Thanks again . Dennis.
|I have previously purchased from you a
set of diaphragms for the Hitachi carbs on
my 1981 Yamaha XJ750 and am delighted
Kind regards, David Merry
