I did on my 250 and just replaced it with a stock one. I now only tignten it with my fingers. This seems to last longer as I messed with my 450 just as much as the 250 but the threads are still good. They should have used a metal screw as the plastic will wear out no matter how careful you are. One of the dummest things I've seen. Especially, if you experiment with jetting.

Tell me about it - yesterday was jet testing day for me - just loosening the carb and turning it broke the threads and the hotstart cable itself....that was the end of the day for me - they dont run worth a damn without a working hotstart installed - :cry:

FFRacing79,

OK, maybe I'm dumb for asking this but where did you get that one?

More to the point, how can I get one. . .?
