Thought I'd just add this, Talked to Jessie and his wife at Keintech, couldn't be 2 nicer people. Jessie also knows alot of tricks on the XT225 and has special ways of taking care of problems, I highly reccommend them.

yes that is a lft handed drill. The idea is to run a at very slow speed in reverse so as to cause the drill to dig into the screww head and drive out the screw. it is not to actually drill a hole into or through the screw. I have used this very method to remove head damaged screws many times and like I said, my first xt had the same problem yours had and it worked perfectly. You can even practice on some other pieces with screws to get the hang of light pressure and slow speed and see how it works to gain confidence before you perform on you critical application.

I should point out this method is for a non tight screw such as the mixture adjusting screw. if the screw is tightened down or thread damaged then it will mearly put a hole in the head, which is NOT desirable. Unless it is crossthreaded in the hole this will work. If the screw slott was ripped out because the screw was cross threaded into the hole or bottomed out and tightened then getting the screw out is the least of your problems. since your bike idles reasonably ok now I doubt it is tight or on it's seat. But, since you said you were new at this i felt i should give a bit of disclaimer.

Just thought I'd post a update. Went to the local Yamaha shop to order a new Pilot Screw set and was told it would take 10 days, forget it, I try to not do bussiness with them for that reason, god they piss me off! Called Jessie at Kientech and its in the mail today, cost a little more but much better and I'll get it in a few days.Still waiting for my LH drill bit as mentioned above, hope it's here today. Don't want to start till I have everything. I now have the time but no parts. Will post updates when I have something to post, hopefully w/pictures.

Kientech is great stuff for sure, i just put a extended fuel screw on my bike, and it makes adjusting the fuel/air screw 10x easier.
