My first reflex is to say that there isn't much difference in any of them one way or other, but that isn't entirely true. Some, and I'm sorry I can't think of any names, have tips that are different from the original enough so that they don't adjust as the original does. Some come only as a screw.

The Zip-Ty tip is very much like the OEM fuel screw, and now comes with a complete set of parts; screw, spring, washer and seal. Seems like one of the best offered. Choice of color, too.

just make sure you get the o-ring to seat good, i had bought the zip ty fuel screw for 450 and it bogged bad off idle, i though it was the fuel screw because that's only thing i did to the bike, but after taking back out and looking at things the o-ring some how got torned when installing and made my bike feel as if it had an air leak

I heard the same thing about the tips being machined different. That gives me unhappy thoughts. I just stick with stock and use a nifty little flat blade bit that fits up there perfect to adjust. I've got probably a dozen of the aftermarket ones in my toolbox of various makes if anyone needs one.
