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?

The only problem you will have is a $.50 sealing o-ring on that float valve after 5 years. no problems with needles at all or brass holder in the carb. Replacement is a waste of $$$. Contact Keintech for the O-ring. You must be reading Thumper Talk too much.
