recommendations for aftermarket float and float needle?

So I´m back from having been away for a long time. My Vulcan 750 was disassembled 5 years ago and only now the (another) mechanic is building her up again. I might be a lucky man in a couple of weeks!

The carbs need new floats and float needles. Prices here in Brazil are absurd as they increase them with 60% import taxes. Some aftermarket parts are offered on the brazilian ebay, however. My question is, are there brands to avoid or that you recommend? Any experience here on this topic? Thanks a lot.

Haven't heard of any to avoid, but check prices on Arctic Cat parts, they use the same carb and are lower cost sometimes.

The brand that seems to be offered most here is Keyster. Any comments on that - positive or negative experiences with float needles by Keyster? Thanks.
