Does anyone know where I could pick up the special tool that is needed to turn the air/fuel mixture screw? Is this something I can grap at my local Honda shop? My jet kit didn't come with one and it's kind of a pain to try and get it to turn with out it. Thanks.

It's on the bottom in front of the float bowl. It's not a screw really. It's round with a flat cut on one side. I got it to turn with some tweesers but it's a pain.

The way I understood him was it was just a small tool that comes with the jet kits they sell. I believe it's aftermarket. I'll find out when I go by there tomorrow.

Yea what bigvick said, if you buy the jet kit it comes with it.

The wrench is called a D wrench, it does come with the jet kit but its a piece of junk. The guy at the honda shop told me he just uses a flat head screwdriver and gets on the flat side to turn it. Note, be careful how much you turn it.

Tried everything and got it to turn, but leaving many marks and nicks on the screw and the outside.

Sasquatch it may have worked good for you but I didn't have good luck with it. That was all I meant by what I said.
