I was hoping someone could help me find/verify the Pilot/Mixture Screw Location for my 2008 Brute Force 650. I've had a hard time finding an exact image online. As you can see I have started to drill out what I believe is the cap covering the screw, but my concern was that the metal was not a thin as I was lead to believe so I wanted to make sure before going further.

Can someone please confirm that I'm diggin' in the right location?



Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
BF

Be careful once you break thru it , you can damage the pilot screw pretty easy if you hit with the drill

Yep...that's it. Man...it would sure be nice if the 750s had allen-heads on the bowl screws instead of the phillips...
Hey I got lucky yesterday and found some at lowes, they were M4-.70 x 20 . I cut them down to 14 and now a happy camper :) first time in 6 years I have found those at lowes

True. The philips screws were a pain to get off. Even with the really short screwdrivers I have. Hex screws and a Bondhus ball driver are a must if you are going to jet. I have not tested it yet, but I believe I should be able to re-jet without having to take any of the plastics off.

Later I'll post some other pics of taking the plugs out. Just in case someone has the same questions/concerns I did.

Finally got the pilot screw cover off and have moved on to tuning. Here are the other pics I took. You have to pull a great deal to get them out. After drilling the hole, I used a self tapping screw to grab on to them. I also blew out the pilot screw hole with compressed air to get the metal shavings out.
