In order to get the plug out make sure the socket has the little rubber insert in or use a 3/8 hose and push it on the end. On my 06 yz450 I'm running the following:
48-PJ
170-MJ
GYTR fuel screw 1-3/4 turns out
NCVS neddle in the 3rd clip position
This makes my bike rip all the way around.

You need the tank off to begin with, then just a 16mm plug socket and an extension.

Either the Moose screw is made wrong, for the wrong model, or you either forgot the O-ring, or possibly left the OEM one in place and jammed it up in the bore when you installed the new screw.

Once I losen the plug up I use a magnet with an adjustable extension on it that is like an inspection mirror.

A real plug socket will pick up the plug without using a magnet.
