Pilot Screw ?

For those that have changed their jetting including removing the plugs for the pilot screws, did you replace the plugs with new ones, leave the plugs out or replace with something else?

No replacement needed. They do that do you don't adjust them for some reason.

How did you get the caps on the pilot screws out?

I am changing jetting, and discovered the cover plugs over the pilot screws? WTF? How did you get those out? They seem to be in there pretty good, and I did notice the factory tell tale black marker across the plug to know if you've been in there. I am afraid to drill these out, I briefly tried prying out using small screwdriver, but that hasn't worked out so well... Anybody have any secret tricks..

Thanks for reply's

You drill a small hole, then screw a screw into it, then pull it out.

The marks are on a lot of items, bolts etc. The marks represent a bolt got tightened, or a plug got pressed in ect. If a quality assurance person on the line sees no mark on whatever it is, it means it has not been tightened or pressed in or whatever.

Be careful drilling...don't get over zealous with the drill bit, or you will have to replace the screws!

I'm sure drilling a hole is a lot easier but also more of a risk of damaging something. I took a phillips head wood screw and used a screwdriver with a little elbow grease and they popped out no problem at all.

Thanks to all! I used a drill, and a self taping screw, and it worked like a charm!

Now I just have to figure how to get to the needle to put a shim washer under it!

Get the Hunterworks kit (Yamaha Rhino Accessories Polaris RZR 800 Accessories Arctic Cat Prowler Yamaha Rhino Accessories - Home) and be done with it once and for all. Plus get technical support with your purchase from Todd, he supports what he sells and he calls it like he sees it.
