Interesting issue IF, the internal tubes have corroded within the tank that would be relatively serious. The interesting piece is, how would they corrode. As far as I know, almost ALL the fuel tanks on modern bikes use copper for this overflow.

Check your coolant level and keep an eye on your temperature gauge. A car will run fine with an overheating engine right up to the point when the engine seizes.

According to this source it's possible to program door lock/unlock with a $35 "blank" remote. The immobiliser part of it is unfortunately a bit more high tech (like you would hope).

I have seen similar symptoms with vehicles that have a semi-clogged fuel filter on gravity fed machines. The blockage prevents full flow of the fuel. The consumption of fuel driving at higher RPM's exceeds the fuel flow and the engine dies. Once the fuel refills the carb float bowls the engine is able to start again. Perhaps this is the issue.

The screw is actually threaded into both parts. If you cannot grab the remaining stub with a Vice grip or similar, get a set of Easy Outs (A tool specifically made for removing broken screws. They cost less than ten bucks.) and do it that way. Once the piece is out of the base the other half is an easy decision... If you can't get the half out of the ...
