1986 XL600R idling problems

This bike i bought new in 1986 sold to my brother in 1987 he never rode it gave it back to me in July this year with 2300 miles when i sold it to him it had 1800 miles it has always had idling problems this is what i did to fix could not adjust pilot screw blocked at factory i bought 6 Sigma jet kit when it came to drilling out plug over pilot screw i messed up screw went to local Honda shop and was able to get screw from old carb. they had and tried to make my own adjustable one from pictures you can see my progress or lack of made my own steel extension for old pilot screw but epoxy would not hold so finally made a new one from a 1/4-28 socket cap bolt no picture of that one but you can see all my other attempt. Well now bike starts with one kick cold or hot and idles perfectly
