Carb o-rings and coaster springs

Where have you guys ordered your o-rings? I need the large round ones and the special one for the drain. I found them on bikebandit and cheapcycleparts, but they're like 13 bucks a pop. Just wonderin if anyone has found them cheaper. And for the coaster springs, the one for the left carb was about twice as long as the one for the right carb. Any thoughts??

I get all my O rings and springs at my local True Value hardware store...really....no need to go OEM for crap like that....but, if you must...check for a local Arctic Cat snowmobile dealer....the carb internals are the same.....CVK34 Keihin......dont search VN750 parts....search for the CVK34 parts......

I looked at my o-rings again and decided to let them take a nice long glycerin bath and reuse them. I am still puzzled about the coasting enrichment springs, air cut valve springs, not real sure of proper name. The left one is almost 2x longer than the right one. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

Maybe count the coils and see if someone might have stretched the longer one or swapped in a short one. I only see one size offered for sale. I count nine coils, counting the ends.
