    I noticed my idle speed screw is backing out due to vibration or throttle cam tapping screw when throttle let off. What can I do to keep screw from backing up?

    A trick I use for bicycle set screws is a light coat of nail polish on the threads. Coat the threads, screw to desired depth, 5 mins later it should be secure and easy to adjust later if needed. Not as good as loctite, but you don't want it that secure anyway.

    are you still using pink, or did you switch to chartreuse? :p

    thats a good idea many do the same for grip screws on hand guns.

    A nice glittery blue to match my eyes works best for when I march in the pride parades.. But for the bike I'd go more subtle, maybe something from Revlon in dark red, LOL!
