Idle adjustment on back of carb near front of bike. As stated in another post. The bike NEEDS to idle at 1000 - 1200 rpm for proper oil flow.Anything less and you could starve the bike of proper oil circulation and damage the motor.

SOURCE: Kawasaki GT 550 - erratic tickover

Put a carby kit through it and clean, inspect and blow all ports through, check intake rubbers for any leaks, (pin holes can change air fuel ratio) Especially check for obstructions in your idle/bypass jet, do the kit first so you know its right, then tune your idle mix until steady.

SOURCE: how to adjust valves on 97 harley fatboy motor

There is no adjustment on the tappets in your 97 Fat Boy. It is equipped with hydraulic tappets similar to an automotive engine. Probably what you are hearing is a bit of wear in the rocker shaft. you can take your rocker arms out and have new bushings and shafts installed if it bothers you that much. If the tick is a loud tick, one where people turn around and look at your bike when you start it up, you may have a bad roller on a tappet. This makes a terrible noise. If this is the case, you are probably going to need a new camshaft as well and the locked up roller will gall the surface of the cam. I've seen these rollers go bad at any mileage from 13K to 70K.

Good Luck

SOURCE: how to adjust tickover on

Hi if you lift the tank, where the cables fit. Onto the throttle body, inthe middle of the cam as you shut the throttle you will see where the cam hits the rest, you will see a screw this is connected by a long wire to an addjusting screw, follow it untill you find the addjusting screw normaly on lefthand. Side just above front sprocket cover,turn in a clockwise direction to increase the speed and anticlockwise to slow the engine speed down

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

Anyone k how to set the fuel and air screw on 84try zinger 60cc 3wheeler carberator ?

As long as you know where the air bleed screw is, then do the following; Screw the screw in until it goes no further, (dont force it). Wind the screw out for about 1 and a half turns. Start the motor, you may have to adjust the throttle stop screw t keep the motor running. When the motor is running (at a fairly slow tick over) adjust the air bleed screw outwards a turn or so, if the motor goes faster then your turning the right way, if not, then screw in a bit. What you aim to do is to get the motor running as fast a tickover as possible. When the moto speeds up adjust the throttle stop screw to keep the tickover at a slow speed, It's as easy as that, this setting should be finally made again when the motor has fully warmed up (as the cold start may be in action if the motor is cold).Good luck

Tickover to fast when warmed up.

I don't know the term tickover. If you mean it idles to high then lower the idle. It's a carbed bike right? Idle screw is on backside near front of carb but remember these Twin cams run on oil volume not oil pressure. The bike needs to idle between 1000 - 1200 rpm to maintain proper oil circulation. If you turn the idle down to get that lope or potatoe sound from the bike you can starve the engine of oil and burn it up. These aren't throw away rice rockets of yesteryear.

Bike starts fine on choke then ticks over when choke off. within 2-3 mins the revs decrease to the point of stalling. have adjusted tick over to around 900 revs but as soon as engine warm the problem re...

If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.
