As far as I'm aware they only came in two flavors, the Weber 12 and Dell'orto phva 17.5.

I think the Weber was the only one to make it to US bikes (that's what I had), but you can pretty much only find the 17.5 as a replacement (unless you scavenge another ETs Weber). The 17.5 made it here on the Typhoon, and was used in a number of other scoots.

I will say - swapping different types of carbs can be a pain to get it tuned up for your bike. So unless you NEED to, I'd really encourage just cleaning and rehabbing the one you have.

And here's a guide on carb bits and setup using the 17.5 as a visual aid (but the Weber isn't too different)
