Went out and brought a screw drive with
the right blade thickness, then took it to local machine shop and had it
ground to the width of the hole.

I sorta did the same thing in my 'machine shop'.

I used the bench grinder to grind a screwdriver end til it was the right width, and the tip to the right thickness for a snug fit to the pilot jet slots.

I call it my 'custom made precision fit carburetor pilot jet extraction and installation tool'.

Why don't you route it to the ground? I run it down into the center stand spring. Stays there perfectly.


yes, did it myself. pressed in with green loctite as an added measure .  no issues. theres many ways to skin a cat.
rode it in today actually (turned around took pic out my window) and i store it in a garage at home. there has -never- been fuel on the crankcase from the overflows, ever.
Keep in mind, im an engineer and have a LOT of machining experience. Its not for everybody to do. Ive also been playing with vintage bikes going on (now) 27 years, so carbs to me are second nature.

Just didn't bother, not too worried about it.  might down the road. too many other bike projects to nth degree this bike, to me. its most definitely NOT my primary bike, and isnt my 'get it perfect' machine, yet. mechanically its perfect but not nut and bolt fussy perfect. (its my rain and haul stuff motorcycle) :beerchug:
