I made my own following the instructions from MotoMan's site....he has a couple of options....an on-the-fly adjustment tool or a little screwdriver (the one I did) made with a 1/4" x 7/16" coupling nut, 8 penny nail and a piece of 7/32" tubing. His website gives concise instructions to both.....if you don't want to mess....I made a couple of extra's. PM me your address....I can mail you one.

sjw I made one with a 1 1/4" long brass tubing that slides perfectly over the fuel screw. I got a 3/8 nut and drilled out the center just a little smaller than the brass tubing and then press fit it on the end with a vise. I then applied a liberal amount of JB Weld on the fuel screw, slide on the tube and let it dry. It works perfectly. The only thing I would change is I wish I would have used a brass nut instead the one I found in my garage. Here is a picture.

I just installed one on my 450. I like the ease of adjustment very much.

The zip-ty gets a 10plus from me. Using the little screw drivers is a pain when you are in gear warming the bike up on the stand and want to make a minor adjustment. You really need to adj. the screw everytime you have an atmospheric change i.e. : temp altitude or humidity .

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK..YOU CAN ONLY GET IT HERE ON TT !!!!!

Another thumbs up for the ZipTy fuel screw. The ease of adjustment and the index marks makes the process so much easier. No more digging for tools for a small, but needed adjustment.

I got one, my bike runs great!

Mine works great. Plus It looks sooo cool. (which is the real reason I bought one anyway because the little screwdriver bit from my multi-tool worked just fine)
