    I replaced all of them to Stainless Steel back in a days. Found all the screws needed from Ace Hardware.

    Re: Mikuni sbn screw replacement

    They are plain steel originally, not aluminum. Stainless is OK to upgrade, but not really needed as there should be NO moisture in your carbs to cause rust.

    People have problems with the original screws because they are not using the correct Philips screw driver. These are actually a metric screw, and need a metric screw driver to fit correctly.

    I see people upgrade to an allen head screw. Personally I like the phillips head as you can give your screwdriver a good smack with a hammer, and they come right out. The allen head screws take a very small allen wrench which can still strip, and be hard to get out IF overtightened. BIG thing is NOT to overtighten.

    Does anyone have the screw specs?...Thread size and pitch as well as length?

    I need some and would like to just order them, costs me more in time and money to drive around looking for them haha
