Would someone who has put one on their 05' be willing to give a verbal description of how to locate it, or even better, a photo?
many thanks in advance!

BTW, I got the "storm" screw (banner ad here on TT) & like it alot.

And, just like Jackazz said, it has plug that must be removed. I used a pick with the "pirates hook" tip. It will go in thru the hole in the center and just work it out. A little stubborn (traces of blue loc-tite on the edges) but it will come out fairly easily. For grins screw the stock one all the way in and count the turns, mine was about 1 1/4 out. After jetting and installing the zipty fuel screw adjuster, it is 1 3/4.

Did you change any of the jets?What is the elevation you ride at.I am starting on working on jetting this beast.I put in a JD needle from my DRZ I think It may be rich at higher elevation (3000 ft).It was missing at 1/4 throttle and it would start when cold with out using the enrichiner.When I got home (300ft) it ran good

Looking at your gallery of photos, I zoomed to the photo that shows the bottom of your carb where you are accessing the main jet and there is a red round knob......would this be it?
If it is, then when the carb is attached, the screw is actually hanging upside down off the bottom of the bowl?

If you are gonna spend the $20, I reccomend the Storm Screw as it has the grooves & #'s on it which can be seen & felt really well, & this helps alot for counting turns when adjusting. Also the way mine is positioned, I know that if I see #4 from the left side of the bike that the screw hasn't turned it'self from vibration. Not shown on the pic on their website is that they now put a small groove on the shaft of the screw with a greased o-ring in it to help keep the screw from vibrating loose.
