Hi
Does anyone know if a pilot screw would fit the rebel 250 please

The O pet number is 16016ken670 (I believe)

The screw on my carb has been tightened too much by previous owner to
disguise an air leak that it now needs drilling out and replacing.

All the screws are USA based and taking a long time to arrive so,
I wondered if there was a UK based one that might be of the same spec to fit
or could I be lucky enough that someone on here in the UK might have one for sale please

Thank you
Pilly

Wow, It amazes me that anyone would tighten a mixture screw like that. Basically when it bottoms out, the "valve" is closed and there is nothing at all to be gained by tightening it more. Good luck in trying to replace it. Even from the US it should take no more than a couple of weeks to arrive. I recently bought some stuff from UK for my Triumph and it was about 2 weeks arriving here.
