Question about float needles

I'm on ebay trying to buy float needle valves. The descriptions are confusing as to what all they fit. Does anyone know exactly what the size is of them is so I can try to reference what they will fit otherwise? The only ones that I see on ebay that are specific to the vulcan are $30 each and there is no way...... I see some that are $6 each and free shipping, but they are for the VN800, etc.... This suction says triumph, yamaha, kawasaki, etc.... If I knew the measurements I could do a lot better finding them. Kawasaki Vulcan VN 700 750 Carb Float Needle Valve Set | eBay

The ones for the KZ750 are only $6 New Float Needle Valve Kawasaki KZ 440 D Belt 750 750B E 750F Shaft 750H F H | eBay

Thanks ive got the book on the bike, but still no specs size wise. If i could stretch the spring it would be fine, but i dont think you can take them apart can you?

I've never had mine apart so I can't tell you from experience. In fact, I'm not entirely sure to what you are referring to. According to the IPB (illustrated parts breakdown) there are only four springs in the thing. I don't see a reference to a "float needle jet".
