Quality of aftermarket ATV parts is all over the place. Almost everything is coming from China. Gaskets, seals, carb kits, plastics are usually a safe bet. A new OEM carb for my Suzuki is $540 . An aftermarket carb on Amazon can be had for $50. Trouble is, it doesn't fit onto air intake, throttle cable has to be altered, and then, after you get it rigged together, it runs poorly. Starter motors..240 OEM, 32 from China. The aftermarket starter body was a hair bigger, but got it in. It didn't sound right to me, so I took it off and replaced the brushes in the factory starter. It's helpful to read buyer reviews on the purchase sites. Some reviews scream junk. It is tempting to go the Chinese route...but buyer beware.
