High speed adjust screws broke...
While attempting to adjust my carbs, the high speed adjust screws on my carbs have broken now, and I am unable to get them out, is it ok to easy-out these? I have already ordered the T-handle replacements from Riva, I am just hoping that I can get these out without having to do more damage then I already did.....,
If I am carefull enough and tape off any openings on the carb so that I do not injest any of the shavings I should be ok right?

How did they break? Regardless, you're probably going to trash the carbs trying to get them out. Time to look for a replacement set if you can't get them out.

the flat tip portion snapped off trying to loosen them out. I cannot even get them to turn with a set of pliers..Looks as if the PO painted over them and that has gotten them stuck. I sprayed carb cleaner on them and letting that soak on there since this morning, tomorrow I am going to try again.

is it possible to take a 3 carb setup for the 1200's and only use two of them on a 800R?

removing broken carb screws
I just had the same problem. I had the screw removed from Jerry's broken tap service contact Tom. I dont know how he does it but he does. here is there website http://www.brokentap.com/
These guys saved me from buying two carbs.

he uses a hole popper, it is basically a drill press that burns away metal so to speak.
