Can anyone tell me where I can purchase a carburetor rebuild kit for the 800 drifter ?

Be very, very careful when you remove the float pin. Read the Kawa workshop manual first. The pin only extracts in one direction, and if you break the casting, as a few people have done, it's very expensive.

Sorry I can't help with the carb kit as I don't live in the US, but ebay is usually my first stop.

I second that and reiterate how important it is to remove the pin the correct way to avoid breaking the pivot points from the carb. The previous owner of my bike did just that and any bonding agent will break down in time. I ended up having to get mine tig welded back on.
