Good to see some of the old basic methods of removing frozen screws are being used...
these new guys would have tried to weld a nut to it ! HAHAHHAH
done right the easy out is by far the easiest method but it does require a straight hole...
and being a pilot jet the hole was already there you just had to enlarge it a bit...so the easy out would fit and start....
.... I've broken all of my small easyouts over the last 50 years so I would have to buy a complete set if I ran into that problem..... or just send it to you LOL
...

happened on the pilot adjust screw, not the pilot jet. Frozen solid, started with a tiny hole, increased bit size till I achieved proper size listed on the #2 EZ out,
still a tricky removal process.

the VTX1300 carb is completed, with the exception of a new bowl "gasket" which i await delivery on.

Complicated Keihin single carb designed with both an accelerator pump and a decel valve. I've disassembled both and cleaned all their passageways along with the same old pilot, main circuits (which were previously clogged solid)

These should be fine runners once reinstalled.

the owner just called, whoever did the install missed attaching the vac hose onto the petcock.....once corrected the 1300 runs SUPERB!

been busy preparing my #113 EX500 carbset (my property based on trade-ins)

Actually removed a tiny pilot screw tip, broken off and solidly blocking its port. I'll post a pic when I can. These are a tough refurb, the pilot jet port on the other carb is solidly blocked, currently in ultrasonic, hopefully will clear it.

And, in the meantime, the electric motor has overheated/seized on my 12-15 year old shop vac. As its NLA to buy/replace as new...had no choice but to buy a new shop vac this morning, an integral supporting device used within my services.

What is it with shop vac's ? I've gone through 4 of them in my time so far
my latest is a Haart 3.5 gal for cleaning my pellet stove, so far so good
but all the rest the bearings in the motors went out.... it's like they were ALL put together with no grease on the bearings !
I am tempted to pull the one I have apart right now and grease it real good !
they all worked great for a short period of time...then promptly died as the bearing would ware out and allow the motor to wobble
once they start going into that wobble mode they can't get the RPM and are useless.......
I suggest you pull your brand new Shop vac apart and lube the bearings !
they should be tiny ball bearings but even those need lubed !
....

on my shop vac the motors' commutator windings were badly burnt.

Carbset #113 (though for EX500) will be released tomorrow, I believe.
Perfectly passed a wet test this afternoon, levels right on the money, no leaks internal or external.

Edited to add: totally finished #113 today, currently listed FS on the EX-500 website.

done, back in the mail already. Findings included swapped jet needles (as they are '09 L/R placement is critical), totally clogged mains/pilots and also 1 choke circuit clogged solid. All cleared/corrected now, should be bolt-on runners. I'll await owners report.
