    Sorry, I'm not sure what the exact diameter of the screw is. I hear that a lot of these chinese kits come with screws that have weird pitches to the thread..

    I'm sure somebody here will know, if you post your engine and carb model.

    As a last resort you can always buy a new carb from your distributor (about $50) and have spare parts (always good :D)

    Its M4 x 20, round off the end and add a tension spring

    And take some thin wire. fold in half, slip over screw and twist till the length is long enough to twist on something...never loose a screw again. That is how aircraft machine screws are safety wired.

    thine82: FYI - Duplicate threads get in the way of people answering questions, as the duplicates often get deleted... It's also very ... maddening ... to spend time answering a question, then find that the question that you just spent time answering, was already answered by someone else in a different forum... &*&%#@!

    I've merged the threads together, and moved the combined thread to the MB parts/accessories forum.

    PM me and I can mail one to you. I'm a slow shipper so it can take up to a week for me to get off my %^&U*I(& to do it but I've got several spares lying around.

    Haha 'silent'. These things are.. kinda loud. No way around that, even the quietening solutions out there are mainly for 'muffling' the sound, rather than reducing the pure decibel output.

    If you want quiet, go electric.

    well hajuu i will have to get a decibel meter to prove it to you.. and all your comments are negative and people dont hear me until i am about ten feet near them so yeah mine is near silent enough till i do the next mod... then it will be.. silent.... maybe you dont need to know when it works cuz you are so smart and know it all already.. ya ole fart..

    re: keep muffler on

    If you are using an expansion pipe with a screw in muffler, use blue loctite.

    If you are bolting a muffler directly on the motor (like the "poo poo pipe" or stock muffler, or a lawn mower muffler like on my build), use a Sick Bike Parts aluminum gasket, after filing to mate, and use blue loctite or maybe red "medium" stud locker. If you ever take it off, use new screws, or clean the threads really well before using again.

    I believe you can make a "silent" happytime engine. You would need a really good baffle muffler, or maybe fill a stock one with muffler gauze, and you would need a box and foam air filter setup.

    I think the most noise comes from the intake on mine.
