New to the forum. looking for info on throttle shaft seals for ZRX1200. .Anyone know where i can get them or what else has someone used as replacements? Mine are causing serious vacuum leaks and need replacement.

I've found these rebuild kits CARBURETOR GASKETS JETS REBUILD KIT KAWASAKI ZRX1200R ZR1200A ZR ZRX 1200 01-05 | eBay
Not sure if it has the required o-rings/seals.

I looked on Ron Ayers at the fiche for the carbs and can't see any parts described for the seals on their own.

my bike only has 14,000 kms on it and the bike is like it just came off the factory floor but with some aftermarket stuff done with it.. the problem is the bike was stored for at least 9 years without being ran so basically the seals are dried or shrunk.. causing huge vacuum leak at the shafts... which really sucks cause no parts to be found!
