air adjustment screw tool

Motion Pro Bit D shaped for use with 08-0229 90 degree tool (SKU 08-0242)

this might be the thing to use on my flexible shaft screw driver to adjust the D shaped air screw.

You can try it but in my experience, there is not much free room in there. I have this and it barely makes it (but does the job)

I have a flexible shaft screwdriver but it just couldnt quite do it. Anger didnt help.

Its a flathead but its no problem reaching in with a little dremmel wheel to cut a slot into that oh-so-soft metal (of the screw) so it works great.

thanks for the quick get back. Already got the screws slotted. I'm ordering it now. Appreciate the info. and the link. Didn't know if it would work cause i already have a remote screwdriver, but the turn is too shallow so it's a no go.

I gotta do some merge work to do on my 2 into 1, then i'll be using this tool.

thanks again

Yep, the $130 Honda specialty tool is pretty much the only one that will work with the carbs still installed (and mixture screws NOT slotted).

I managed to get one of those off Ebay several years ago for about 100 bux. It has been worth the purchase!

Worth the purchase? $100 vs $23? Seems economicly undesireable. Took me like 5 min to slot the screws. I will stick with $23 & use the $77 spare bucks for Christmas presents.

Yeah but I didn't have to pull the carbs to do it AND I can slap it on there any time and tweak them without hassle!

Unfortunately there is no easy access. I use the more expensive Motion Pro screwdriver and that is a struggle. Especially on the rear cylinder.Motion Pro 90-Degree 1/4" Hex Driver- Tool Time- Motorcycle Tools

In an ideal world I would like some fuel screws with a twirled **** that I can turn by hand. I have found some for quite a few for other bikes, mainly HD's and 2strokes, but not the VTR CARBURETOR - FUEL SCREWS - Zip-Ty Racing Products

Relavent thread here https://www.superhawkforum.com/forums/general-discussion-30/carb-mixture-thumb-screw-28832/#post338413

I will find out what the thread pitch is one day and maybe get some made up. I am constantly tweaking and playing with the carbs and not having easy access to the A/F adjustment frustrates me.
