Hi Shawn -

The "superdry" seals need to be used with updated jet bearings as well.... the old style jet bearings will only work with cork seals, you cant put rubber seals in it's place.  You have to buy them as a unit.  I have zero problems with leaky H4s.

Anyone come up with any good tricks to seal the jets from leaking, and stay centered? I chamfered the jet side holes so not to tear the "upgraded" o-rings but still seeps fuel. Tried three sets with with no success. Also the jet bearing doesn't seem to stay centered and it's easy to move the jet assembly around from underneath.  I stretched out the old gland springs and that seemed to help, so I installed new gland springs and still not great. Thinking of stretching out the new gland springs and use new oil soaked cork seals, as original.  Thoughts?
TIA, Shawn
