Default Stripped Carburetor Bolt

Hey guys. i was hoping that you all might have some tips to remove a bolt that i am having trouble with. i was in the process removing the top part of the right carb so that i could get to the needles and add a washer underneath. my 250 is running really lean so i needed to get into there. anyways, i got 3 screws out and the final one on the front right of the carb stripped. (on the right carb) any tricks to remove this bolt???

1) Grab a pair of vise grips and go at it

or

2) go to home depot/lowes and buy the grabit bit.

Did you add an aftermarket air filter or anything else to make it run lean?

Vice grips or drill the head off the bolt and then vice grips.

I'm no expert but I have heard people suggest using a hacksaw or dremell to put a slot on the head and try a LARGE flathead screwdriver.

Also to add more info: after removing the snorkel i get a serious sputter between 5-7000 rpm and it almost stalled me in the middle of a highway the other day killing myself and my girlfriend. it was pretty serious. that is why i need to get this fixed.
