If you have access to the right people, I wonder if one could be machined out of SS (inconel would be my favorite or maybe titanium)?

Did you try getting it from Sudco or your local Keihin parts distributor in Belgium rather than the Yamaha dealer? The price should be better.

Sudco definitely sells the parts. I've bought 2 from them. :D

They call it a vacumm release plate. Make sure you buy the seal that goes behind it!!
The first one I bought, I didn't know that there was a seal for it and it broke after a few rides! :)

Is this something I can look forward to replacing? Did you do ant modifications to the carb (remove stop) to make this happen?
