Float retaining pin ding,ding,ding
 
I was cleaning a carb off a burgman 250 last night and I dropped the float retaining pin. It Ding'd across the shed floor which I have searched inch by inch but I cant find it anywhere.

Ive looked online but cant find anything. I took apart an old carb I have lying around but the pin is too thin.

Where would I buy one?
Its a Keihin carb.

Thanks:bikerie:

Fair play Gixxer. No wonder I couldn’t find the pin, I couldn’t even find that.
Thanks
