Hi,just asking about this,I already have started carefully drilling the screws out because they are really stuck and these are spare carbs,but was wondering for the next time if you guys have a better way. :D

Can't remember their name but Honda uses a special size of Philips screw drivers. Someone will chime in with the proper name.

I think you are referring to JIS (Japanese Industry Standard) screwdrivers. All Jap bikes use JIS screws and the matching screwdriver is the only one to do the job properly, without chewing out the head of the screw.

Yeah,I have those type of screwdrivers but whoever put these things together really got them super tight,but not to worry,I finally got them off so now I can rebuild this set like my original set. :D

A JIS impact screwdriver will loosen pretty much any stuck screw in the carbs.
