Wild guess, but

It's not the screw that holds the pivot for the float in place is it?

This could be crap as I've just realised that 's probably a BST carbie :D

A few more tyre ideas

I like the XCMH for fanging through the bush, but put a Bridgestone ED78 (120/100) on for longer trips, not quite as grippy, but wears really well. I'm also about to try a Starcross HP4 (90/100 x 21)...
