I have removed the snorkle and the exhaust baffle and even found the grey wire to unplug and tape but can't seem to locate the trottle screw/stop.
I want to get all this done at once so I can re-jet and pipe shortly later.
Thanks for assistance.

I removed the AIS and found an almost verticle screw that enters the back of the carb. The yamaha tech said it's this one, but you guys say to remove the right side cover.
I can easily get to this one with a 4mm socket on a long extension and air rachet. Should be a quick change if it's the one on the outside.

Do you have to take the side plate off the carb?
No you don't have to remove the cover. You can see the head of the screw and get it out without removing anything else. Getting the AIS out of the way helps speed up the process though.

I did the AIS removal tonight and had already pulled the straw out of the exhaust and the snorkle out of the air box.
It idles better and accellerates better. I like it. Cant wait to take it out on Saturday.
Next week will have the screw and will be ready for some more power.

cgrlvr - remove the plastic snorkle from the air box top and more air can flow faster into the bike. If you do this you should also remove the straw in the muffler to get both ends flowing better, if you haven't done this already.
