Got the "nickel plated" emulsion tubes in the other day. Regular worn out brass ones. Emulsion tube pics from the ad below. Can't say they look brass in those pics. Seller was cool with returning. Ordered stock ones for a 89+ FZR1000. They were $15 a piece plus shipping. There should not be $10 shipping on something small enough to ship with stamps.
Fun fact: If you need a slide diaphragm Suzuki will sell just the diaphragm for a DR650, which uses same carb, for $20~ rather than the whole slide for close to $200.
The vac ports for synching the carbs were capped with electrical tape and sections of hose. One hose plugged with a bolt and zip tie. Ok. The other hose plugged with a piece of plastic shopping bag. Hmm. Ok? Vac caps can be had at any parts store. They aren't one off OEM parts. See odd stuff used for plugs a lot and can only wonder.
Speaking of vac caps, the rubber bit on the end of the tank prop was shot and I replaced it with an appropriate sized vac cap!
Shaking my fist at the clouds while waiting for parts. Haha
