    I lost the carburetor Idle Adjustment Screw today on about the fourth test ride. I don't know if it was just simple metric screw or something specific to the RAW Motors carb. I don't really want to buy a new carb for just the screw.

    Does anyone have a work around? Can I just find a replacemt metric screw of some sort. The bike still runs without it if you tweak the choke.

    roll your bike right into the hardware store. if anyone objects, tell them to eat $hit.
    you'll find one that works.

    you will get a better responce if you use honey instead of $hit.
    But that is funny I'd pay to watch that go down.
