Is the fuel running into the engine with it not running? If it is then you will have to remove the carb and clean out the float bowl. Check your float height and clean out the body. If the engine is running fine, you won't have to adjust any screws. If you want to decrease the amount of fuel running through the body then you would have to lower the main jet needle. Thats the one in the slide. Moving the C clip up will decrease the fuel and moving it down will increase the fuel. The large screw on the outside of the carb only moves the slide up and down for idle setting. The small screw at the back is for air movement through the carb for the high idle. The only other adjustments that can be made is changing out the jets for larger or smaller ones. Hope this helps.

Kx 125 sputtering in high rpms


check and make sure choke is opening all the way,if it is only opening part way could explain why you don't need to use choke at all to start and then at higher rpm's it is not getting enough air causing it to basically choke it self out.

Just want basic carb settings for my 2000 kx85


there is not much to adjust. Leave the float levels alone, they are set at the factory, leave alone the sliding needle adjustment too. All you have left, is an idle screw, and an air screw. adjustment for the air screw, turn all the way in till it stops, then 2 full turns out. mabey more , mabey less, listen for best idle. Then adjust your idle speed, thats it.

Kx 85 04,bike had a slight bog when throttle was gassed then i cleaned the carb,now it really bogs and running very rich.i also messed with the air & idle screws hoping i could fix the problem &...


Start with setting the air and throttle screws. Turn each one inward until it GENTLY seats. Back each one out one and one half turns. Clean the air filter and starter plunger. The plunger may need to be rebuilt or replaced. Check the pilot and main jet sizes. There will be a number stamped on the side of the jets. The pilot jet should be #45, the main jet should be #140.
