adjusting fuel mixture screw on 99' r6

I just want to ask if whether the fuel mixture screw on my 99' r6 is the same as pilot screw? when i remove the air box i can see the 4 screws in golden colour in each cylinder, it doesnt seem like i need to remove the carb to adjust them.

i try looking up the manual, cant find anything says the fuel mixture screw

any help would be appreciated.

Re: adjusting fuel mixture screw on 99' r6?

Look in my 02 thread at the pics. If you can see them that easily, you are looking at the wrong shit. They are nearly impossible to get to with the carbs on using a standard type screw driver. You really need a long one with a universal in it or something like that.

Re: adjusting fuel mixture screw on 99' r6?

cuz my bike wont start with choke especially during cold, i only smell gas if i put the choke on. hence im suspecting it is running rich. but i haevn't cleaned the carbs since i bought the bike, not sure if this will create a fake riching effect?
