Thanks Dave.
This is not a "golden rule" but an indication of JIS screws can be a dimple on the screw. My research has shown that Suzuki do use JIS in the majority of their screws,YMMV,as always

For getting the carby screws out I just ran a 5 mm drill into the heads and the heads fall off when you are deep enough.
Once the bowl is off the rest will screw out by hand.

For a JIS driver, you can grind the tip down a bit on a normal Phillips for a fair fit.

Once chewed up, you can use a hacksaw to cut a slot in them and use a normal flat blade screwdriver with an impact driver.

Then replace with Allen heads, stainless is good.

Think I used an impact driver (from Supercheap auto) first time, and went to universal fasteners and got socket head screws and now use allen keys.

all fixed.
dodgey fuel delivery somewhere by the looks. Doesn't seem to fit the symptoms but I:
cranked it over - no start.
checked for spark, pulled and cleaned the plugs (they were a little dark but not toooooo bad)
pulled the fuel line and checked the carb inlet filter .. a little bit of grit but not enough to even slow the flow .. left it out and replaced with a small inline anyway.
Stuck the tank back on, cranked it and vroom vroom.
So .. maybe a little bit of grit in the line or something .. oh well, all's well that seems to have ended well

cheers

Just to report back on the crazy idle issue I had, the mixture screw was like 4-5 turns out. I reseated it and turned it out to 2. While I had the tank off I checked the valve clearance. Rear ones were fine (0.04) front were a little tight so I loosened them to 0.08. Put the bike together, started up straight away, idle was great....
Started to smell something burning, think it was just a bit of oil leaking from the rocker cover when I had it opened. I wiped it off and turned the bike off.

Went to turn it back on again and now I just get a 'tick' from the right side of the bike... Could adjusting valve clearances affect the starter motor in anyway?
I dunno what to do. I rocked it back and forth but still only a 'tick'. Grounding looks fine. Battery is new..... sad now :(

In theory if you adjusted the valve clearances and then had the motorcycle running, you can't have got anything that wrong to not restart. So that is probably not the issue. Likewise fuel mixture adjustment can't affect that. Might be worth checking the main fuse as you said you smelt burning. If you still have the stock tank maybe either the horn or some other wiring has shorted on the metal tank.

Mine did this once after I'd done some work on it. Presumably to do the valves you had the tank off which means the seat was off and therefore the side panels also. Have a look at the battery terminals, and at the starter relay under the R/H side panel. I pulled the plug off the starter relay and pushed it back and it was fine after that.

I got it working again, the connection on the starter was loose.

Anyone know how to get the magneto cover off if the hex hole is stripped?

Hammer and a sharp chisel around the outside edge has worked for some. It's easier with the engine at operating temperature.
