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.

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

Sounds like it has an air leak. Try spraying some carb cleaner around the intake manifolds while it's running and see if it makes a difference in the sound.

Tickover to fast when warm, 2000dyna low, where is adjuster.


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.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,

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.

Bike won't tick over on startup and has very low


wens the last time u tested the battery-they wear out-inpect the whole electrical system for loose or corroded wires also-if alternator is bad it affects the batt life look over the fuel system also-a minor carb adjust could be at hand-cheers mate

Missfiring on tickover


try revving your bike fairly high a few times while it's in neutral. you'd be amazed at how much this helps to reduce the top end ticking.
