Does anyone know the difference between the Keihin Jets and the OEM Jets from Jets r us?

Well, it says ‘OEM EQUIVALENT’ and they are half the price. That tells me that they are not genuine Keihin

Do they not have the "K" on them?

half price of where?
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

Agreed, they are copies and cost less than genuine. I am guessing that they aren't complete garbage like you would find on eBay or Amazon.

I have found that the cheaper ones thread in the carbs fine, they just aren't the exact size as a genuine. So a cheaper 40 pilot may not be exactly the same as a 40 Keihin.

I just bought the genuine Keihen jets instead as well. I had the same thought, but then realized if the part is directly reflecting how the engine functions then I might as well get the "premium" part.
