Behind where the AIS was, remove the plate that covers the throttle linkage. Not sure if I'm using the right vernacular here. The plate is held on by two allen screws. Once the plate is off you will see the screw. The head in on the bottom and it is pointing up at about 1:00. It is help on with locktite so you will have to strong arm it just a bit to get it moving.
Just get the YZ screw and replace, for the money I think it makes a cleaner job but if you are good with a saw and ruler you can cut the old screw. Also get a little locktite (medium) and put a drop on the threads of the replacement screw. button her up and you are good to go. Don't forget any hoses you took off the AIS. The link in one of the responses above has the Yamaha part number to make it easier to order.

Thanks again! I appreciate it. Now maybe my WR450 will feel more powerful than my old IT490. I have been a little disappointed so far, but I realize I'm not getting anywhere near full power from this bike with this old screw in place.
Too bad we will be getting 4" to 8" of snow tonight.
