if its the air/fuel mixture jet needle he's talking about ?, nope..never..not gonna happen !. once the tip breaks off in the carb body ?, that carb is trash..paper weight from then on, it can not be fixed..no way at all !.

That’s pretty common for the pilot jet on those to break off.
Is that a Keihin QA04A? The parts listing only shows part number 16100-HA8-023 and 16100-HA8-033.
anyway, you should be able to find them on fleabay for about $80 to $125 but look carefully at the model number in your service manual some sellers will only know that they took “this carb” off of an 86 250. And make sure their jets aren’t also broken off
Here’s one with that honda part number but as you can see the seller has unintentionally covered up the model number

If your stuck an ATC carb would work, as would a 300 fourtrax. You'd need some minor changes but would certainly be a MUCH better option than a China knock off carb.!

Let us know how you get on :)
