There are only two adjustments to make on your carburetor; the idle speed, and the idle mixture adjustment. If the spark plug fouls frequently, first make sure you are using the correct spark plug. Your 1997 YZ125 uses an NGKB9EGV. Then be sure you are using the recommended two stroke oil, mixed to the proper ratio, in the fuel. Also make sure the air filter is not excessively soiled.
With all of the above confirmed and corrected, start the bike and run until the engine is up to normal temperature. Adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the fastest idle and best throttle response. Then adjust the idle speed.
If you are still fouling the spark plug, verify that the carburetor has the correct size jets by consulting your owner's manual. Keep in mind that if you are operating your bike at an altitude higher than about 6,000 feet above sea level, the stock jetting may be too rich. Down-size the main jet in small increments until satisfactory operation and the correct spark plug color is obtained.

SOURCE: engine will not idle when warm, hard to start

There is one screw that adjusts the revs,you can increase the engine revs and it should solve the idling problem.Be careful as there may be one for air mixture which could look similar..make sure you adjust the one for the revs only.If this does not solve your problem then let us know.

Check that the intake manifold is not cracked or separated, extra air might cause you to need the choke. Some times the first carburetor cleaning does not do the trick. Take the carburetor off again, take out the slow jet, and shoot through it with cleaner to make sure it is clear. Now shoot through the passageway of the body and make sure that the body of the carburetor is clear . When all passageways in the body are clear then reassemble and put it back on. If the air screw is set correctly you should have a machine that idles.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The new carb. fuel mixture adjustment screw should be very close to the setting needed to operate the engine normally. You should not have to move the screw more than 1/8 th turn in either direction from the current ORIGINAL setting.
You mentioned the engine smokes really bad. Several things cause a smoking engine:
1. Older engine
a. Piston oil rings stuck to the piston skirt or rings worn out
b. Piston wear
c. Cylinder wear
d. Valve stem and valve guide wear
e. Valve head and valve seat wear.
f. Crankcase breather clogged
g. Overserviced engine oil.

Perform a compression test on the engine. You should have a minimum of 120 PSI pressure. The higher the pressure the better. If the cylinder compression is under 110 PSI the engine needs some serious maintenance.

I can not emphasize enough that the new carb needing any major adjustments is a symptom of other problems within the engine. Like I mentioned earlier if you have to make a fuel mixture adjust more than 1/8 th turn in any direction from the original setting something else is wrong.

IF by chance someone got over anxious and has moved the fuel mixture screw start at 1.5 turns from just barely closed. I am surprized that the new carb did not come with a plastic cap over the mixture screw.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How to install choke cable on 400 Kodiak atv ?


Your information is on the ATV Forum

Throttle cable: remove the 3 screws on the right side of the carb, take off the cover, there is small rubber gasket (red) Don't lose it. you'll see the cable attached inside. move the mechanism forward like you're opening the throttle to get enough slack to unhook the cable.

Choke: on the other side of the carb, the choke cable screws in with a plastic nut (10 mm i think) unscrew with your hand, if its tight use pliers or wrench..its easy to unscrew it.

When you say new carb kit what exactly do you mean as this problem sounds more like a fuel problem rather than electrical although I would bypass the engine kill switch just to be sure and also the side stand cut out switch, have you cleaned out the pilot jets and air bleed pipes (do not poke anything into the holes just blow them out).
Does the vehicle tickover ok and only cut out when riden?

I've got a yamaha kodiak 400 and ca't get it to idle. Appears to be to rich. If I turn the fuel off it will idle ok. I,ve checked the float level hight and starter plunger but have run out of ideas.


change the needle valve and seat in the carb also check for debrise' in the fuel line, contaminents no matter how small can hold the needle valve open also check the clearance on the intake valve to insure proper adjustment
