here is a updated list of all normal rubber service parts. Specific to the carb set being worked on others may need some hard parts... fuel screw, float needle, jets, ect...
For full rebuild, you will need 2 O ring sets for each carb.
note this number is different then what is showing on parts sites right now, it is a superseded number and commonly list out for applications other then the VTR..But My Honda parts guy confirms the number is right and I have personally used this set on 4 VTR carbs now..they are the correct O rings.
So 2 of these

2 Each Float bowl O rings

2 Each carb to air box O rings

2 Each O rings for the fuel screw Which are not available as a single service item for this carb, but can be had in same size (same part) in other bike models or bought bulk as I do.
The OEM part is SCREW SET 16028-MY5-890 which gets you a fuel screw, spring, steel asher and rubber O ring.

Consider replacing the carb to head rubber manifold. after only a few yeasr they get hard as a rock, nicked if you R&R carbs a lot, and may not seal well
1 Each
NOTE there are different front and rear

And then Silicone hose for everything you wish to replace... for me that was every mm of black rubber hose
