BUMP on this

Time of the year when this starts to happen again - as already said Silkolene Pro FST is the only proper cure for this that I've used on a few Bandits (6 & 12) down through the years.

Yes but even some of the supposedly heated carbs still suffered badly . There just diddnt seem to be as many threads about it .
