Carburetors have come a long way of “evolution” since they were invented and in time they became quite complicated. It’s quite a lot of work to adjust carburetor to work perfectly in all range of engine RPMs, so no wonder that average carburetor consists of many parts. But of how many parts? That’s depend on type of carburetor, its manufacture and production period.
However, these “exploded view” photos may give you an answer for this question in case of Mikuni VM24 carburetors with accelerator pump from Kawasaki KZ650 motorcycle. I couldn’t decide which of two photos I shot form slightly different angles is better so I decided to post both.
