2009 Buddy 125 mixture screw cheap hack

Post by Bill61 »

If you have a tamper proof, non adjustable mixture screw on your carburetor, do this:
Remove with needle nose pliers.
Scuff top with 320 sand paper.
Cut the head off a steel screw. I used a 10-32 screw with an apex slot and a 5/16 6 point head.
Clean mixture screw and screw head with acetone.
Attach screw head to mixture screw with 2 part epoxy. I used ATACS brand. Let dry 24hrs.
I beveled surface of carb to allow for adhesive under screw head.
Install and adjust with a #2 apex bit or 5/16 socket.
