Default Carb Tip

Hope this hasn't been covered. The Mikuni Carb on the warrior has a float bowl held in place by Phillips head screws....but they're not really Phillips heads.

The screws are (JIS) Japanese Industrial Standard screws. I Took a pic, see the dimple that the arrow is pointing at, that is the indicator for JIS.

They technically require a JIS screwdriver, if you use one you will find they don't strip easily as with an American Phillips.

hope this helps.
