I have an 03 Sportsman 500 6x6 that I managed to break the carb on.

Yes, I broke the carb. It had come loose and I didn't realize it. Just had intermittent power issues. I continued to run it to do chores and finally, the flange where the bolt attaches to carb broke.

So now, I need a new carb and they are: 1 - Expensive and 2 - all on backorder.

Th6x6 uses a different carb than the standard 500 sportsman. Any ideas where I can locate one?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the 6X6 carb has a different part number, but all the 500 carbs are the same model. Due to the rarity of the 6X6, I doubt you will find a used 6X6 specific carb easily. There are only minor differences in jetting and such between the carbs, so I suggest you try and find a used carb with an intact body, such as this example:

If you find a used carb with an intact body, regardless of condition, you can always disassemble it and use the jets and such from your old one with the good body. Good luck - MarkC
