SOURCE: idle problem.

The timing is factory set and doesnt change, does it have the idle screw? I assume the one you adjusted is the air mixture screw at 1.5, you shouldnt adjust with the cable as it might cause the engine to rev on full lock, it needs a small amount of freeplay

SOURCE: How many times do I

I am assuming you are talking about the idle of the bike, which should be 1400-1600 RPMs. If you are talking about the air fuel screw it should be 1 3/4 turns out. Make sure not to tighten it to tight as you can damage the needle. I hope this answers your question. Thank you.

I have a new 570 cfi carboretor on my 1965 ford mustang it will not idle and when accerated it takes a moment to slow down

It's been a long time. So, first Back the idle screw off to carb, then screw it back in until you see the throttle plate begin to move, slightly. It has to be open a bit. Then you have two screws at the bottom front of the carb. Left side is for low idle and right side is for fast. Turn them both to closed. Don't slam them shut, just until they are snug. Turn both of them open 1 and 3/4 turns. Start the car and let it warm up to operating temperature. adjust the left side first. Close it until the engine starts to sputter or die, raise it back a hair. Then go to the right side and do the same. Adjust the idle screw to 600 or 900 RPM's. depending on auto or manual transmission. Do all this one more time and you are set to go.

Hi, ive got a 1999 g2 kawasaki zx6r been sat for 6 months+. ive changed plugs,battery, petral and pilet jets becoz to blocked, so put like for like back in. it only starts of bump and backfires realy bad...

Have a professional carb service and valves adjustment done.
Just replacing the idle jets will not clean the entire idle circuit. Mixture screws need to be removed, circuit needs to be cleaned out, re-installed,and properly adjusted for idle mixture.
If backfire continues valves need adjusting. Best to do both at same time to save on labor.

Zx6r running problems

Lest adjusting the idle adjustment screw on the carb, turn the bike on and slowly turn the idle speed up so it doesn't die out on you, if that doesn't work try taking the carb off and cleaning it with carb cleaner

I am lacking power and need to adjust my carburetor

the idle mixture screws are only for mixture adjustment at idle
at speed the idle circuit acts as a emulsifier tube to help with the fuel in the main jet
what you need is adjustable main jets or fixed jets for that altitude
talk with an accredited carby overhaul shop that knows about the carby you have fitted and the appropriate jets to use

I have a 2004 Harley Davidson FLSTFI ( fat boy ) with a little over 5,000 miles on it. When it gets to operating temperature the idle gets so low that it shuts off. It will crank right back up, but it...

Your bike is fuel injected. This means that there are basically no user adjustable components in the fuel system. You must take this to a dealer to get the idle speed set. You might also have a vacuum leak somewhere causing it to change. As for the one time it shut off at highway speed, I wouldn't worry about it unless it started doing it again. Mine did that once. Turned out I had inadvertantly hit the "run/stop" switch.

Truck idles wierd with a/c on

In this series of truck they used an idle up solenoid mounted on the side of the carb and is controlled by a vacume switch. If the idle setting is too high the cut out switch will shut off vacume and idle drops and goes up again because it is too low for the load. This will go indefinitly till you have the idle set down on idle solenoid screw.this is basicaly a very easy job if you know where the screw is. Dont set wrong one

Have a toro power stage max model 826LE electric start, runs irre

Sounds like carb. may need adjusting. Take the heat box off to expose carb., there should be 2 adjustment screws- 1 on the bottom of the bowl and 1 on the side of the carb just above the edge of the bowl ( depending how the carb sets off the engine - if the carb comes straight out it will be on the side facing towards the front of the snow blower or if it goes towards the handles then standing other side of the snow blower the screw will be facing you), turn both screws in til they just bottom out the turn them out 1 1/4 turns out then start the machine. While the machine is running at low idle turn the screw on the side of the carb. in (clockwise) a little at a time listening for the engine to start to rev up and then start to rev down, bog or studder then turn back slightly to bring idle back up. Once the idle is up then the screw on the very top of the carb. turn that out to lower idle to a normal idle. Repeat those adjustments till you cant get the idle to go up anymore. Now for the screw on the bottom of the bowl- move the throttle up to max and turn the screw in till you hear it rev up higher and starts to bog or sputter then turn it back slightly to bring the high rev to a smooth rev. That should take care of it. If it does not solve it then the carb may need cleaning then the adjustments done again. If you need more help on this please feel free to ask. Sometimes you have to do process of elimination and you start with the easiest first. Also the adjustments should help with the carbon build up on the plug.
