Ok, lets just say hypothetically.....
That I'm adjusting the pilot screws and then I go for a ride. Now on this hypothetical ride I notice that the bike is running good but needs to be leaned out a tad. Next thing I know the bike starts to back fire and act really weird. Then hypothetically I get home and notice the freaking pilot screw, spring and o ring are missing.......
Other than ordering a new one and replacing it. What else should I do......HYPOTHETICALLY
1. replace the other side as well (Manual says to do this)
2. Leave the old one in and just put the new one in.
3. What the hell is the purpose of the pilot screw anyways!!!
