Japanese Screwdrivers Spec
Found this on the internet and thought I'd share:
There have been some complaints about getting the Phillips screws out of the carb float bowl. You need to use the proper tool. Those - and a lot of other screws on Japanese cars, motorcycles, and other products for the last 20 years use are Japanese Phillips, specifically Japanese spec (JIS 4633B/1991 and DIN/ISO standard 5260). Note the dot in one corner of the cross formed by the slots on the screw head indicating ISO/DIN. The Japanese style screwdrivers are available from AmesSupply.com and Katun.com.
Using normal American/Euro #1 or #2 Phillips screwdriver in a screw head with the dot on it will most likely strip the head on the first try with very little effort.
