1997 GL1500 Pilot Screws

Post by Brother54 »



Hello All

I'm working on my brothers bike which set for a long time. Got everything going good with the carb overhaul, tires, forks etc, went to adjust the pilot screws one more time and one of the heads broke off. Can you please tell me where too get these? These have obviously have been modified. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Brother 54

Well I really didn't think that was an option. You know the aftermarket screws are buried once you get them where they need to be so I don't think I could every adjust them on the bike. The ones I showed you were very easy to adjust. How would you go about repairing it?

Thanks Again

From the photo it looks like someone just soldered or brazed the head of a Philips screw on them. So redo the solder or braze job.

I agree, and it looks like “eyeball” tolerance. This doesn’t look like an aftermarket option.

That's what it looks like to me, too. And someone's "eyecrometer" could use calibration.
