Mixture screw off a P-series carb? Last Sunday, I took a sprint of a ride from Greenbelt for the better part of a mile across University Blvd. After turning off on a side road and stopping in traffic, I found the bike wouldn't idle. As dark was falling, I got the bike home, threw it in the shed and left it until Friday afternoon, when I pulled the plug, saw it looked like the engine was running a little lean and went about checking the carboration. The culprit wasn't hard to find. The mixture screw was AWOL. Swapped one from a spare carb and all was honky dory all weekend. But off all the parts that can rattle off of a P-series, this seems like an unlikely suspect to me. -- Ryan

Not off the P-series carb, but have lost them off old dirtbikes as well as the RD. Springs get worn/old and combined with the rattling they just back out.
Oft-overlooked replacement part!
