    carb drain screws?


    ARGH! I cleaned out the float bowls and adjusted the floats the other day, but I must have forgotten to torque down the drain screws, 'cause one backed out and dissapeared! I ordered some from BikeBandit, but it'll probably be like a week till htey get here. Anybody have a spare drain screw? (it's a m5x12 screw with a little cone on the end, probably the same from 89ish-96ish katana 750s and gsxr 750s) anybody? I don't wanna spend this whole week missing the good weather 'cause of a little damn screw!

    Have you tried calling a local bike bone yard? If you have one local you might be able to get a set sooner.
