Well,I tried with Sea Foam and B12to solve my carb problems. No go. I pulled the carbs today on my 1999 GL1500 SE. Glad I did. Plenty gooey, they really need cleaning. Vacuum hoses look great. Anyway, getting into it the Pilot Screw is circular with one flat side, no slot. What kind of tool is needed to screw this out and where can I get one? Also, looking down the road to synching the carbs, where can I get a barb to hook my vacuum guage hoseup to on the right side of the manifold in place of the plug screw? Where can I get one and what is the correct thread count and size? Thanks and thanks for all the earlier input regarding Sea Foam etc..
