185633510157 is my eBay item number for the needles. There I show with photos and give instructions on how to open the gauge cover witout removing it from the bike. 

I bought new needles from Lare and they are perfect. Highly recommended, pics show before and after

Hi Lare,
After I reinstalled the problem screw I noticed that one of my needles is just about to break.

Your photos suggest separating the needle from it's base with an exacto knife. How is the new needle secured to the old base?

Thanks
Bill

I solved all my plug fouling / fueling problems by fitting these. Bosch FR78X Has anyone else tried an alternative sparkplug?

I used superglue when I did mine, you only need a tiny drop

I just super glue the needles onto the old locations.
I Sell the needles already separated from hubs, I also sell the needles as universal needle with hub since a lot of 80s cars and bikes use the same type needle.
