Just rushed out into the garden and rummaged around in me bushes but no scrap bike parts potentially worth a Bonhams ransom price....just Mr.Toad🐸 soaking in the damp🌧atmosphere.

I have no idea what anything is worth :lol:

I'm trying to justify spending £12 on a new float valve.....

Justification answer....try making one...then £12 doesn’t seem so expensive🙂

Very true!

Yet another one of my stupid questions!

Hypothetically speaking if you were going to order a replacement float valve for a Mikuni VM26 would you get a 2.5?

Oh and if anyone uses a "Smart Watch" I've designed a watch face :)

I’d be very surprised if the needle valve shown actually seals it looks very ridged. Needle valve and seat called for....or suitable material from which to make both. So that’ll be a lathe and various tooling plus drawings and dimensions, £3,500 should cover it🙂🤷🏻‍♂️👍

:lol: Very true, I think I'll just buy a new one, the trouble is I don't know which one to get? I think, from what I've read it looks like a 2.5 but just need someone with a bit more knowledge than I to confirm :lol:

I spoke to a nice chap at Allens Performance, he sold me a 2.5 :lol: - Seems my carb is off an old Beta Rev4.
