Padding issue with page menu

I'd be very appreciative if anyone could help me out here. I'm having trouble getting the padding right on my page menu.

It's working just how I want it on the one link without an expand-down arrow, but the links that do have an expand-down arrow lose the padding to the right of the arrow.

The URL is: http://www.hummingbirdsusa.com/. It's very much a work in progress.

I'm using the following CSS insert:

#menu1 ul.rMenu-hor,
#menu1 ul.rMenu-ver {
  padding-left: 0px !important;

#menu1 ul.rMenu-ver {
  margin-top: 0 !important;

#menu1 .rMenu-hor a {
  font-weight: bold !important;
  padding-left: 25px !important;
  padding-right: 25px !important;
  line-height: 20px !important;

#menu1 .rMenu-ver a {
  margin-top: 0 !important;
  line-height: 1.2em !important;
  font-weight: normal !important;
  font-size: 13px !important;
  border-top: solid 1px #BBBBBB !important;
  border-bottom: solid 1px #333333 !important;
  border-left: solid 1px #BBBBBB !important;
  border-right: solid 1px #333333 !important;
  padding-left: 7px !important;
I've tried many combinations of adding padding to various elements, but nothing I've tried has worked. Any ideas?

try using
HTML Code:
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li.rMenu-expand a
instead of
HTML Code:
#menu1 .rMenu-ver a

Because the arrow is a background image I would probably just edit the image so there is more space on the right.
