Bike Bandit has part #1800883 needle/seat assembly for $19.99 as opposed to Suzuki's part at $56.17. Has anyone tried this yet or should I be the lab rat?
At that price its worth the risk as long as its returnable if unopened.
Maybe pull your carb and compare the parts (with some magnification if possible) if it looks identical then PLEASE be the lab rat
Worst thing might be another carb pull and replace the original parts for the time being.
Anywho at least if you pull the current parts and take a careful look you will get an idea of their condition. So its just a matter of how much time you can afford to spend going through the process and whether you can justify the money or the time or the Susuki stuff.
Keep us posted please
