The only places I've seen the clip is on eebbaayy (rare) or in the K&L accelerator pump kit.

The clip that is shown is the original Mikuni clip. The ones included in an accelerator pump kit are shaped like a small e and are much more difficult to get fit into the very shallow indentation.

The clip in the K&L accelerator pump kit is the same as the stock part in the pic shown in my first reply above.
In the past I've looked around for a tiny clip to use as a substitute but didn't find anything. doh.

Z1Enterprises.com is where I got the AP kit.
