SOURCE: fuel mixture screw

Begin by screwing the mixture screw in all the way until it stopps,,,but ONLY JUST STOPS,,,,,DONT FORCE IT,,,then look at the top of the screw slot,,and call that 12 oclock,,,now turn the screw out to you three full turns going through 12oclock,,that means 12 to 12 is one turn.

then start the bike,,,finish your adjustments now by slowley turning the screw outwards until the engine starts to misfire,,,at this point turn the screw back in one half to three quarters of a turn.Now you have the mixture set roughly.
For fine tuning,, you need to use a monometer while turning the mixture screw
Best of luck...

SOURCE: where exactliy is located the air-fuel mixture

The pilot air screws are sealed to prevent tampering. If access is necessary, the plugs can be removed. The Clymer manual, number 314-3, gives a detailed procedure, with pictures. Be careful! This requires skill with a drill in a small space, and it is possible to destroy a carburetor with poor technique.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: where air fuel mixture screw located?

Air/fuel adjustment screws are no longer accessible since about 1983. They are adjusted at the factory, and even dealers are subject to a $10,000 fine if they change the adjustment. On the other hand, consumers also take a risk and depending on what state you live in, you may get away with adjusting them yourself. The adjustment screw is usually capped with an aluminum plug and and is very difficult to remove, the carbs may need to be removed to even get at them to try to remove the plugs. Removal involves drilling a hole in the plug, and using a sheet metal screw driven into the drilled hole to pull the plug out. Be advised it is very easy to ruin your carb in the process.

1978 Honda GL 1000 (K3) white smoke out of tailpipe@


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on startup is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on startup may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on startup is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

1978 Honda GL 1000 (K3) idle adjustment


Hi, Anonymous you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.
