They're capped with a soft metal plug, have to pick, drill, rip it out to get to the screw.

Drill very slowly. If you go too fast you will damage the screw under it.

After having to pull them again today, I was ready to drain the gas tank and toss a match on them.

Top tip; Replace all the 4x0.7mm phillips screws in the carbs and clamps with socket cap screws, it makes working on them sooooooooooo much easier.
