where do i get a used PWK carby?

Hi all,
I'm finally taking the plunge and getting a PWK Air striker carby (38mm i think?) for my 2000 RMX. Can anyone recommend wreckers or anywhere else reliable where i might find one ? I've searched the web and can't find anything apart from eBay US. Somewhere that's helpful enough to put the right jets in it would be a bonus...

cheers

US eBay.

I recently picked up a 38mm PWK for my WR360 from the states. But I ran the jetting too lean and big badda boom.

Like they say, an engine always runs the best just before it lets go. The 360 was chewing up 450 4-strokes very easily before it went.

Now to decide whether to cut my losses or rebuild.

Edit: I just took my piston to the very experienced small engine mechanic at work (he has also spent half his life working on dirt bikes) and he reckons, looking at the evidence, it probably wasn't my jetting that caused the problem. He thinks the big end bearing just let go because of age. And maybe the running it leaner than it has for most of it's life may have caused it to go 1 ride sooner than it was going to go.
