Correct Screwdrivers for Metric Cruisers
I set out to replace my turn signal last week and as soon as the screwdriver started to turn in the head of the screw I felt it start to round out immediately. After stripping several screws on my carbs I figured it was time to bite the bullet and pick up the JIS head drivers from RJR Tools. I waited patiently for the screwdrivers to arrive and when they got here I was anxious to see if they made the difference I had anticipated. Even with the haed of the screw slightly rounded from my previous attempt the new #3 JIS driver went in and with little effort turned the screw right out. The head sticks in the screw extremely solid and has no play at all. I tried out the other sizes on various screws on my bike and without fail there is no play and only confidence inspiring feel.
So, if I had these screwdrivers earlier I would not have ruined my original carbs and stripped out the heads of the stock screws. JIS screwdrivers seem to make a difference...just my 2 cents.
