Obviously have previously replaced mine with similar issue, but they were sent to me IIRC from Yamaholic. So consequently, have no knowledge of their actual size, but highly suspect based on my own experience that is the first suspect issue. After putting new 0rings on those mixture screws, smear just a shiny coating of dielectic grease on them. This keeps them from being pinched or distorted when screwing them back in carb.
