You should order the gaskets that go with the float bowls and the jet cover (the latter are kind of a pentagonal shape). You should also go to Home Despot or Lowe's and pick up some replacement bolts for the float bowls - 5mm x 12mm. I've been going with the flat heads (that is, for flat screwdriver) 'cause the phillips heads are a PITA. On that note, you may find that the existing screws are nearly impossible to remove - the heads strip, etc. You can drill them out, though, just be careful. Also pick up 6 5mm lock washers for the same. Finally, you'll need some tiny hairpin clips to re-fasten the rods on the throttle plate. I think I've been using 7/32 from HD or Lowe's - don't get the tiniest ones (too small); but the next-to-tiniest will work fine. However, get a few, 'cause they're easy to break when you're trying to wrap them.
Motorcyclecarbs.com is out o' business (a couple of us had very bad experiences with them - either it was a sign that they were on the way out, or the reason they folded!). Your local Kaw shop may have the jets you need (140 mains, 40 pilots; 2 shims per needle).
