Actually as the tires wear the error increases. If you have a mechanical speedometer and you're fairly mechanically minded you can take the speedo apart pull the retaining pin on the watch spring, increase the tension a bit and put it back together. I've done that before. Not sure how your instruments are made, but you don't want to destroy things doing so. The other option is to get some stick on numbers and stick them on the bezel at their appropriate positions. For example, stick 45 over the 55 speedo number. Check at sign makers to see if them can fix you up with numbers. Any more they have machines that laser cut adhesive vinyl and can make any desig you want. ,,,

Hyosun Scooter Carb Adjustments


Very good thought process on the adjustments. The throttle screw sets the idle speed and the air screw sets the fuel mix at idle speed. The stock setting is 1.5 turns outward. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward.

From this point you adjust the idle speed then adjust the air screw for fastest idle speed at that throttle screw setting. If the idle speed becomes faster than desired after adjustment, just reset the throttle screw and then reset the air screw.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
