You can also try to screw a coarse (wood or metal) screw into it until it grips and pull it out with pliers. Worked for me. (you are discarding the cover...so you are not worried about messing it up).

I took off the bowl. Placed the bowl between two 2x4's and used a punch. A couple of light hammer hits and it popped out.

I'm confused! Isn't the mixture screw on the '05 behind the silver plug thats right above the choke knob? Why loosen to get to bottom?

No, the mixture screw is on the bottom of the carb next to the float bowl. It's got a small plug covering it. I just used a small punch and pryed it out. No drilling necessary. Just find something to jab in the hole and pry that sucker out.

Take the float bowl off the bottom of the carb and pop the cap off that covers the hole and remove the fuel screw and replace it with a Zip/Ty Fuel screw.
