Be careful! Aftermarket float needles have issue with the plating on them. The plating tends to slag off over time from the gas. There is a thread out there that shows a pic of a non oem needles and they look like what paint looks like after using stripper on it. I had my carbs all done cloased up and ready to go back in the bike when I read this thread. Well I took them apart and put the originals back in and she run great. I'll try to locate the thread for you.

Yeah, I know..Randakk's has info and pics but said newer ones have improved but still recommends staying with OEM..just posted for those with $$$ issues or willing to take a chance..

There aren't many places that sell the needles alone and thsi price beats most out there I have seen and no shipping costs...

Guys like me appreciate the Non-OEM info because as RB wrote, $$$... I could not afford OEM 1 yr ago when my 78 needed rebuilt. (mostly needed a cleaning very bad). Anyway I bought K&L for cheap and they are still ok at this time. Took carbs apart about 3 weeks ago just to make sure the aftermarket valves were not going bad.. They looked fine, saw no problems.
