    Are replacement float needle screens available without an entire kit?

    I'm looking for a set of replacement float needle screens (I guess that's what they are called).

    This is the part that I mean ("circled" in red).

    I have found a number of kits like the float and needle set on this page: https://www.partsnmore.com/parts/honda/nt650/?filters[category]=carb&filters[fitting]=custom.

    I found these through K&L: https://www.klsupply.com/carb-fuel/f...for-keihin.asp but it doesn't look like they are available.

    Has anyone ever bought these separately?

    Thanks

    I've only purchased the kits. Personally I've
    never seen a filter screen only option. K&L aftermarket is what I've usually purchased.

      Yeah, that link to the K&L page without any option to buy only the screen is all that I saw. I guess the worst case is $20 for two sets from Parts-N-More.

          I submitted a contact-us question to the K&L guys to see if they actually sell the filters.

          I'll let you guys know what they say.

            The Parts-N-More guys got back to me; no dice. They only sell them with the kit.

                  when my filters did not fit snugly. i grabbed a new razor blade and put 2 of the slightest cuts at about a 30 Degree angle NOT FULLY thru Maybe 1mm into the inside of the plastic. DO NOT REMOVE THESE WINGS. the wings just put enough pressure to old onto the 10MM housing.



                  OH and BTW..... do not cut your fingers when doing this!!!!!!!!
