    Just picked up a quiksilver carb kit from the local yamaha dealer for my motor and after tearing the carb apart none of the parts seem to match. I've cross referenced the kits and they say that they go up to a 2004 but in the small print reads fits models up to 2002? My motor is a 2003 15 yami 2 stroke short shaft tiller. Any ideas? I have already wasted $45 bucks and just want to get the right kit. Is it possible these are universal and the gaskets may not look oem? The needle valve even looks different. Any suggestions? Thx guys! :(

    Comparing parts numbers for the 02 and 03, they seem to use the same.
    Even the 2000 model has the same numbers. :-?
