Ask questions about the carbs, You are protected if they are not what
is listed in the ad. Ebay is good about that.
Save the questions for use later if issues arise. Do not delete them.
These threads inside the carb body are very fine. And not very deep.
Trying to drill it out and retap are impossible. A machinist MIGHT
be able to get it out, and is a crap shoot. If he can't back to square one.
If he can you still have to try to get the new pilot screw to thread into the hole. This is where the repair gets dicey. Any variation in how the pilot screw is set compared to the other carb is CRITICAL to balance between carbs . In other words all the adjustments are based on (lightly seated as a starting point).
If your 2006 does not have cat convertors it should be identical to earlier models.
You can also go on line to : Bike bandit .com and look up the year of your bike and its part number for the replacement carbs, Checking other years will reveal if the same number is for other years. I've done this many times with great results.
Last point Try to find carbs that were removed from a wrecked or parts bike and ask questions. Plenty out there just waiting to be purchased. Do not rush it. Get a good deal...
