Carb gaskets?

Hello everyone. I am looking for a little assistance with finding some part numbers carb gaskets and what ever else I would need after doing a carb cleaning. I recently purchased a 2000 Vulcan 750. The bike did start but contantly needed some throttle to keep it running. This bike sat for an 8 month deployment and we believe all that is needed is a carb cleaning.

I am gratefule for any advice and/or part numbers you can provide.

Thank you,
Jason

if you take apart the carbs real carefully, you shouldn't need any gaskets.. I have had mine apart several time son the same set of gaskets.. if the chance you do rip one, you can use some O-ring found in your motor pool.
