Jis b 1012 standard (screws) ?

Can't find anything on this using the search option. I remember it was mentioned in the past on a thread. Do our bikes use this type of screw and if so, where did you purchase the Drivers?

I have had good luck filing the point of the Phillips driver just a bit.

Our bikes do use JIS screws.
You can find drivers on Amazon easily and inexpensive.
Filed Phillips may work in a bind, but I MUCH prefer my JIS driver

There is like 2 of them on the bike and I can't remember ever trying to remove or tighten them, ever??? If I did, I used my Sears tool screwdrivers and never had a problem

A light touch with the tip on a bench grinder is sufficient to get those screws out. Used on the handlebar controls?

I remove the the two screws that hold the headlight in place with a large Phillips which does not fit well. I did not realize all the variations there were. Maybe that has been my problem. I will have to look into this. What say you?

Read my post above, never needed a special screwdriver for the 2 screws on the bike like that. The rest are nuts and bolts

Maybe it's because of the abuse of the previous owner, but I have needed my JIS driver on my hand controls, headlight, and taillight assemblies in order to grip enough and not strip the corroded screws. It's also helped a ton on my Trail 90 and other small engines & carburetors.
