CARB TOP PLATE

Just letting you know so if anyone has the same problem but I am positive I am the only one in the world capable of doing something this stupid.

I take umbrage with that statement.
At least you’re man enough to admit your blunder. I think that’s pretty cool. I tried to think of some things I’ve done that top that:
Let the slack in a tie down flail, it got caught in my driveshaft and bent my buddy’s handlebars. And scared the hell out of both of us.
Snapped main jet off inside carb on KX ‘cause I overtightened it.
Drove out from under unhitched gooseneck trailer with tailgate shut.
Let my (ex)girlfriend ride off (horseback) with a loose cinch. But the stupid part was when I laughed after she fell off…
Routed throttle cable wrong on KX and almost rode an open class MXer, WOT, into my roomate’s bedroom (via the garage). It’s strange how a kill button barely works at 10,000 rpm.
Started a race with petcock off.
Started practice loop and accidentally ended up on mini course (I’m thinking “Jeez, this is a TIGHT course!”).
Feel better now?

Thanks for your reply it definately made me feel a lot better and it just goes to show that we are all human and we all make mistakes and as long as no-body is injured or there is no major costing involved I guess we can put these misfortunes down as learning experiences and even sometimes look back at the funny events and have a laugh while having a few beers with our mates.
