carb air/fuel mix

PostAuthor: bigwheel53 » Fri Sep 11, 2020 3:31 pm

So I decided to leave all the California pollution control stuff be. If I decide to sell it,it will be unmolested. BUT,,,The air/fuel mix screws STILL have the plugs in. Bike is a 1990 and hasn't been touched lol...I tried drilling the plugs out but those suckers are in there ! Im going to synk the carbs tomorrow and figured I would do a complete adjustment. Does anybody have any ideas how to get them out? I DONT want to pull the carbs. Been there done that..

Depends on how big the hole is you drilled. You only need a hole big enough to get a wood screw started, then pull screw and plug together.

If you went beyond that with the drill, then you should be able to pop it out with a seal pick.
