Cool Carb Drain Screw

I have a stripped carb drain screw part number 92009-1095. I was wondering if it was possible to replace this with a more durable screw. It seems really soft, and on the right side its difficult to get the drain screw out, so easily stripped.

Ref #: 92009
Part #: 92009-1432 (92009-1095)
Screw, Drain, M6x1.0 1 per carb.

Don't know of a replcement screw that might work- it's a special application. You could try slotting the head with a dremel cut-off wheel and using a screwdriver. Also, don't overtighten!

On my Vulcan, you don't have to take the screw out to drain the carb. It also is a slotted screw. Seems they changed them at some point.

Don't know if the newer slotted screws fit the older bikes though....

x2 that would be the easiest option if only the head is damaged
