    Exclamation Stuck low speed screws HELP

    I have a 2000GPR with 117 hours on it. I am in the middle of rebuilding the carbs. I drilled out the brass plugs covering the low and high speed screws. The high speed screws turn easy(All 3)
    All 3 of the low speed screws are stuck!
    Has anyone else had this problem before?

    Try soaking them with penetrating oil and let them sit for a while then try to loosen them if still no luck then you will need another set of carbs.

    The reason I have them off in the first place was that the ski has a serious low speed bog. I thought a carb rebuild was in order, this is what I find. The carbs look like crap on the outside, but very clean on the inside.

    Do you think it is a total waste of time on a rebuild if I cant get the lows speed screws unstuck.
