Adjusted my valves yesterday, and decided to install the Zip-ty fuel screw. Problem is I can't get the factory screw to drop out (doing without pulling the carb) tried to grab it with tweezers, no luck. Any idea's :)

The fuel screw on my '99 also will not drop out. You must remove the fuel bowl to get it out.

You need to remove the float bowl and carefully drill out the fuel screw hole in the float bowl so that new fuel screw just barely fits through opening. Be careful not to lose spring, o-ring, and small washer at tip of fuel screw. Before drilling, check to see if new fuel screw will fit through original hole.

Thanks I'll wait till I need to service the carb. The bikes running perfect now. :)
