Here you go, from when I got the carbs from a bike that had sat outside for
I realize that they do not show this screw on any parts fische because I
have had to replace one and only certain rebuild kits contain this screw.
Your pictures don't actually *show* the screw installed, and whether
it's externally accessible with the float bowl still installed. I found
*one* message on Usenet where an owner asked about a mixture screw that
was *inside* the float bowl. Nobody answered that message, either
nobody knew the answer, or nobody was interested enough to reply.

My point is that next time, instead of just simply stating that the screw
doesn't exist because you can't find it on a fische, realize that maybe it
is something that you don't know about and shouldn't be giving someone false
information. Maybe it's possible that since the screw was supposed to be
capped from the factory due to emissions requirements, Suzuki chose to not
show them on any parts fisches/lists. Who knows. But it sure exists and your
post would have just further baffled the original poster if there wasn't any
False information? Why would I intentionally give somebody false
Why do you even accuse me of giving false information after I went out
of my way
to help somebody who asked for information? I asked the OP for more
about what screws he was turning, and I got a rude response from *you*
All information is "good" information, but sometimes it's not the
information the questioner is looking for. Maybe learning that there
was an oddball slidevalve carburetor with fuel mixture screws in the
float bowls will help somebody else what owns a 28 year old motorbike.
Now I've seen *two* kinds of slide valve carbs with mixture screws that
might be called "gas screws". Mikuni radial flatslide carbs also use
"fuel air screws" instead of "pilot air screws".
But there's no need to be so nasty about it. You actually went through
all that trouble just to prove that krusty kritter was wrong about
something. You had to
digitally alter an image just to prove it. What was *so* important that
you had to do *that*?
Why couldn't you just say, "No, there was *one* year of GS750's that
had a pilot gas screw, here is a picture."?
The parts fiches on www.partfish.com and www.bikebandit.com do not
include the 1977 GS750B carburetor, they show the 1978 GS750C carb and
go from there.
