Carb bowl drain screw issue

Recommended Posts

Anyone heard of an aftermarket drain screw for the carburetor bowl?????

Went to the dealer & was told I had to purchase the float chamber assembly (bowl) to get this screw & was not available seperately. $61.00 for a drain screw is a bit outrageous!

Called the yamaha dealer & they had the yz450f drain screw screw in stock. When I got there & looked at it, I noticed it was somewhat different from the original. The honda screw has a tapered end & uses a tiny o-ring near the head. The yamaha screw didn't have this. I find it difficult to understand why honda would do this?

Lost the original, but I have good memory what it looked like. The honda parts fiche shows the tiny o-ring on the drain screw for the '07 450X. My sons '06 450R has the identical drain screw. The o-ring is available seperately, but apperently honda wants to sell the complete bowl assembly to make the screw available.
