I see procycle carry the extended screw for the 650 DR but, converting to canadian dollar and paying for post or shipping! Does anyone have one to spare or know where I can get one in Canada?
Cheers
Mark

You could try contacting the Carburetor Doctor in Alberta. They may know of an extended pilot screw that will also work for the Mikuni BST 40SS. :s_dunno

Does one need one actually?

Admitted, I live at sea level and the weather doesn't change much here either through the year. But in my 25 years or so of riding bikes, I hardly ever readjusted the pilot screw once it was properly set. Really the only reason for me would be "because it exists"....

Agreed. When dialing it in or if on the rare occasion an adjustment is necessary, one could make due with a screw driver bit.

... which I have had in my jacket pocket for over 6 months and never used since the day I pulled the snorkel out and shimmed the needle.

I got the screw but in hindsight I could have just pulled out the plug and set the original at 1.5 turns out, would have been all good..

Thanks for the replies! I'm convinced to leave well enough alone! The plug is out by the previous owner I suspect? The bike starts easily and runs fine so I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it!

If you do want to get one (makes life so much easier when tuning with a jet kit, vs a screwdriver), I got mine from Gnarly Parts in Chilliwack. They get Kientech ones from JD Jetting if you call (not listed online), but as Kientech is now retired you should get one while JD still has them!
