The new floats and float valves arrived from CMSNL. These are the fixed-height floats and therefore needed special valves. I installed them without removing the carbs, simply by removing the float chambers. All very simple and quick.

I'm pleased to report that everything went perfectly well and there are no more leaks. Hoorah!

 Unfortunately, the low-rev problems persist and I'm buggered if I can resolve the issue. I just don't know what else I can try - I feel like I've replaced everything that matters on the bike and all to no avail.
That doesn't mean I'm gonna give in though! Oh no. Winter's approaching and that's when I tend to spend a lot of my leisure time in the garage, so maybe I'll solve the mystery then.
