Carb float adjustment Perth

Looking for a perth local who is good with carb's.

Mine is leaking through the over flow pipe and I have tried pulling it apart and adjusting the tab. Stopped leaking then and even after I let it idle for a while but then started again after a ride (freeway and some first and second gear in sand).

Any advice or assistance would be appreciated as I'm trying to skill up mechanically by doing anything I can on the bike myself.

Mods: Sorry if this is in the wrong spot but thought with the local request it was best suited here.

These two O-rings fail regularly because of ethanol and should be replaced every other year or so. The older the bike the more likely. Just because they may look good doesn't matter. They will allow flooding just like a leaking needle.

and they can bugger awful fast. my last DR was only 9 months old when those o-rings stuffed up. took ages to work out what was wrong because i figured the bike was too new to have those rings perish.

A misadjusted float height alone will not cause a BST40 carburetor to overflow.

Inspect the tip of the float needle with and without magnification to see if it has a witness line where it has been contacting the seat. If so, fuel is leaking past or will do so soon.

Regards,

Derek

initially just stalled on bumpy ground. got progressively more sensitive to this. eventually would only run if using at least half throttle. worst point was overflow of fuel back into the airbox and leaking out. had the carbie apart about six times over a two month period, plus posting on various forums and taking it into suzuki for their mechanics to inspect.

only got it sorted when someone who had this happen to their near new DR said replace the o-rings even if they look perfect.

Thumb Fat bar mounts help please

What have you guys used to mount fat bars on the DR? Is there a recommended mount? I have been looking at some generic bar mounts with a 60mm thread length and 10mm diameter bolt, but the guys at the bike shops seem reluctant to sell them to me and say they think they won't work... I can't see why not?
BTW I don't want the riser style ones that sit on top of the stock mounts, I actually want as little rise as possible, just want to convert to pro taper fat bars 1 1/8" size.
Help appreciated!

Question

Just bought a DG slip on, anyone else got one and had to adjust the holes on the mount brackets because they didn't line up with threaded holes on frame?
