I am new to mc's I bought 700 Intimidator and I was practicing my stopping when i stopped by my house I put it in neutral and was getting ready to park it for the night when all of a sudden it just died, so I started it again and the same thing. Lets fast forward to later, when I did some searching, I check alot of things just to be sure. Theres Gas, oil, checked spark plugs, battery.....etc Thats when i noticed a cable hanging down... Shocked again after doing some searching and reading the repair guide...I see that it is the idle adjustment cable with the screw on the end. That came out of where? That is the question where did it come from, is this something i am going to have to take alot of parts off to get to the place it belongs? I would like to try to fix it myself, before giving up and sending it to a mechanic. (there where to pieces still on the screw, which is a spring and a washer) ,Should be able to just screw it back in... if memory serves. Basically the idle adjuster just holds the needle part way open allowing some air to move through and let the engine idle. A couple of pictures would go a long way towards helping you.,,,

How many round will open anti clock wise of air screw in passion pro model 2010

Standard procedure is 2 and half turn anti-clock wise i.e. if the air screw is screwed in but care has to been taken when screwing it in do it very slowly and with less efforts so as not to damage the point.
Best to adjust this air-fuel mixture is to let the bike's engine reach normal running temperature than you adjust can go a little plus or minus depends on many other factors.
Valve clearance too have to be checked and set according to the manufacturers specs. Hope this helps!

Messed Up with the carburrator

wind in both screws all the way then out 1 turn. This should be enough to start the bike, remember to use the choke if its cold. When its running you can adjust the air screw to get the fastest revs you can. The idle screw only affects it when its at tickover, adjust to get ideal tickover revs after all other adjustments. But it really needs to be set up with instruments, like a carbtune.

The mixture screw has its main effect at idle.It is called the idle mixture screw. So may not help fuel consumption a lot.

To adjust it.
turn it in until it stops and count the number of turns exactly(so you can put it back if adjusting doesnt work)
Then screw it back out to the original position, and start the bike.
If you screw it out about half a turn, from the original position, the revs should rise and then become uneven, with the revs rising and falling(this is lean)
If you screw it in half a turn from the original setting, the revs should slow down and maybe stall the engine(rich)
Pick a place in between the two, where the idle is smoothest.

Of course make sure the bike is serviced first, clean or new air filter, new plug, new oil, adjust valve clearances(if it has valves) check tyre pressures, adjust chain (or replace if old)
The new air filter may make the biggest difference, as it gets dirty or old,it will richen the mixture right through the rev range.
And fix the shift key on your keyboard please.

How to adjust 2007 yamaha roadstar 1700 carberator

The most common adjustment would be to adjust your idle mixture screw. These guys make the job very easy with a thumbscrew to do the job. Tell them I sent you and that you need carb help.

They are great guys and very helpful. They have my bike running the best it ever has.

the cam uses screw and locknut adjustable rockers on it. this allow the valves to be adjusted by just loosening the lock nut and adjusting the screw to the specified clearance at top dead center compression. hope this helps. thank you.

Idle adjustment

If there is not a screw on the side of the carb then look at the top of the carb where the throttle cable connects. The fitting at the top of the carb is threaded and would adjust the carb idle. There may be a similer adjustment at the twist grip but I don't remember one there.

Hope you can rate this solution as a 'FixYa'
