Do the aftermarket fuel screws tend to give you the feeling that they could loosen, I know that there is more leverage. I am coming off a 2 stroke, and wonder if you need to mess with a 4 stroke more or less . I ride between 4,000 and 11,000 ft. on my yz 250 I would only have to adjust the air screw a quarter turn depending on temp , and of course a main jet up or down. After looking around the carb on my 06 wr I don't want to mess around any more than I have to. Also how far out do most of you have your fuel screws set at and with witch pilot jet thank you.

I'm sure it's possible - but putting the aftermarket screw in was one of the best things I did with my bike especially with the altitude diff you're talking about. I can't remember the setting and it's too late to go check - I ride mostly at 4500 to 6500 feet and I just followed directions on dialing it in. I love it because when i do ride at higher elevations, it's really simple to get by for a few days without messing with the other things.
And IMHO I think you'd want it as much for the four stroke as the two stroke.

I bought a Zip-Ty fuel screw. O-ring on that shrunk after first ride so that I can't use it any more
Just haven't have energy to go and get a new one which can take engine heat
