Need carb info .

My bikes been down for a little over a year(torque limiter killed my case) so I decided it was time to fix it but before I tear the motor down I wanted to start it up to make sure everything still works.
I replaced my old chewed up stator with another one, charged the battery...it would turn over but not start up.
The plugs are firing but my guess is old gas, so I pulled the carb from the motor (all but the choke cable) to clean the carb out but I cant get the screws out of the bowl, I dont want to strip them but ther serious tite.

Whats the trick to get'n these screws out ?

I used a impact driver to remove my carb screws. Others have been successful with vice grips. Everyone agrees they are verrrrrrrrrrrrry tight. Replace them with hex head screws from hardware store. I think they have a gorilla put them on!

Had the same problem yesterday - went off and bought some M5X12x.80 pitch stainless socket head bolts ( and you need some shorter ones for the throttle clamp - we cut down two bolts by about 5mm to suit ). I also bought lock washers.

Then came the problem of getting the bolts out... the guy doing the work for me ( because I had already st***ed the screws enough ) didn't want to use an impact driver so we used a pair of largish pair of multi-grips on the top and bottom screws and then we managed to move/slip the throttle clamp around and this left us get to those two screws.

Put the new bolts back in with some anti-seize and it all worked really well.

I found a better way to get those silly round headed screws out, because they're rounded, they're hard to get a good grip with vice grips and they keep slipping off, so I found it easier to take the carb completely off, and clamp the head of the screw in a bench vice, then turn the carb itself to loosen the screw. Makes it much easier, as you can screw the vice up without it slipping off the head of the screw. I do this with a lot of rounded out screws, as long as there's room for the corner of the vice jaws to get in and clamp on the head.

+1. Used an impact driver on mine yesterday. Have used needle nose vice grips on other carbs in the past. Replace with allen heads.

so after only 200 or so miles on my D606's I've decided to get rid of them. I don't much trail riding and since I'm mostly on the highway I want something more street oriented. What do you guys think about the Shinko 705's? I was also thinking the Shinko 244 since I've had that pattern before on my DR200 and liked it a lot, both on and off road.

I want to have the ability to go off road when I can, but not be uncomfortable on the highway, 90% of the time.

Luckily I only bought the rear D606, since the front came with the bike. Oh well. Anybody want them?
