Hyosun Scooter Carb Adjustments

I was having a hard time getting the scooter started. Cleaned plug, changed fuel, cleaned carb with spray, and air filter. Have adjusted carb and it running much better. There are two screws for adjustment. I assume one on top is for idle and second below is fuel mixture. I also assume turning it in makes it leaner. What steps do you recommend to adjust both and are my assumptions correct?

Thanks

Very good thought process on the adjustments. The throttle screw sets the idle speed and the air screw sets the fuel mix at idle speed. The stock setting is 1.5 turns outward. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward.

From this point you adjust the idle speed then adjust the air screw for fastest idle speed at that throttle screw setting. If the idle speed becomes faster than desired after adjustment, just reset the throttle screw and then reset the air screw.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

    That is normally the case. The slide inside the carb touches the end of the throttle stop screw. Screw it inward and the slide goes upward to increase speed. The throttle stop screw will show major speed increase / decrease when turned. tha air screw will not.



    I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, I just try to help where I can. So if you feel it is right, > > A “very helpful” rating for these answers? Thanks!

Scooter has 40 original miles.New,old gas, I put innew gas. It starts,idles only, if I give it gas it stalls and won't run..


Hi, Rick if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

My bike a 2004 shadow aero will not start in the morning sometimes it will if i spray carb cleaner in the intake inside the air box i just had the carb cleaned and the vac hose replaced and valves adj


Have the plugs been replaced? Fouled plugs can cause this condition. All carburetors cause more difficult starts in the cold, because they need a richer fuel mixture. An intake leak can also cause hard starting because it leans out the air/fuel mixture.

Start with the plugs first since you didn't mention those. Here is a handy reference for standard NGK plugs. http://ngksparkplugs.com/tech_support/spark_plugs/faqs/faqread.asp

After you get the bike started, spray some WD-40 around the carburetor intake manifold seals. If the RPMs change, you have an intake leak.

Hope this helps.

Mtd yardworks walk behind starts then idles down shuts off after 20 seconds whats wromg


Usually when a mower dies, it is a fuel delivery problem. Have you changed the filter? Is the gas fresh. Also has the air filter and spark plug been changed recently? the Carburetor may need to cleaned. Take the air cleaner off and spray some carb cleaner in the throat of the carb. Also, take about 1/3 bottle of carb/fuel system cleaner and add it to the gas in the tank.. For the new mower engines, there is no fine-tune adjustments on the carburetor. Also clean the exterior of the carb with carb spray.

Scooter starts but turns off


Hi, Domagoj and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

Scooter won't start with electric start or kick start.


  1. Try depressing the brake handle when starting.
  2. The battery has not been charged.
  3. The battery is hooked up wrong. This is often the reason for blown fuses.
  4. There isn't enough gas or two-stroke oil in the scooter.
  5. There is a gas flow problem, especially on the Euro Scooter or Yamaha models.
  6. The spark plug wire is not connected.
  7. A low battery or bad relay can cause the scooter to only start by using the kick starter.
  8. There is no spark to the spark plug. The coil is bad and needs to be replaced.
  9. Turn the key to the "on" position.
You need to check for a spark. There are a few ways to do this. The easiest way is to remove the spark plug and put it back in the spark plug cap. Then ground it to the engine - you should be able to lay it against a non-painted portion of the engine. Make sure there is good metal-to-metal contact. In a semi darkened area, attempt to start the scooter. You should see a definite spark at the tip of the spark plug. It's hard to see in direct light. If the color of the spark is blue, that means it's a strong spark. A white color is less strong, and a yellow color is weak. Most scooter starting systems are a bit weak (compared to cars). Even a yellow spark should start your scooter just fine.
The spark must occur at the right time. Just about all scooters made since around 1980 have an electronic ignition. These systems can rarely be set. In general, the spark occurs just before the piston reaches the top of it's stroke. There is a slight delay between the spark plug fire and the fuel-air mixture ignition. That's why the spark occurs a little early. Most ignition systems have an advance unit build in. As the engine speeds up, the time of the spark retards a little bit. This helps the engine fire the mixture at the proper time

There are a lot of tiny fuel and air passageways in the carburetor that must be kept clean it order for your scooter to run right. Carefully, take the carburetor apart. This can be relative easy (on a 50cc scooter). The carb has tiny passages that can get gummed up. Your scooter will not run correctly if the carburetor isn't completely clean, so take your time. I use a gallon container of carb dip (you can get a gallon at your local auto supply store).
First, remove all of the rubber and gaskets or they will get damaged. After a 20 minute soaking in carb dip, I blow out the carb with compressed air. You have to get all the jets and the passageways clean. Be sure the jets are clear, especially the starter jet. Sometimes carb cleaner won't clear out these tiny jets. Use a guitar or a piano string, a strand of copper electrical wire, or a tiny drill bit pin vise. Be sure not to increase the size of the hole in the starter jet or you'll change the tuning. Carefully reassemble everything, checking for cracks in the rubber carb boots and the gaskets. Replace them if they are old and cracked. Be sure and remove all rubber and gasket material first or they could get ruined. Spray carb cleaner also works if you're diligent.
If you have an electric choke, check it to make sure it works. Check the resistance between the wires - you should see around 10 ohms or less. Measure the length of the choke assembly. Remove the choke from the carb and plug the wires into a 12V source for 15 minutes. The choke body should be warm. Measure the length again - it should increase by around 1/8".
Next, consider whether your exhaust pipe is clogged. This is especially a problem with older two stroke scooters. The unburned fuel/oil mixture builds up in the exhaust pipe along with carbon over time. If the exhaust pipe is clogged, your scooter will run terribly or not at all. It can be difficult to tell if the exhaust pipe is clogged. The easiest way to tell is to remove it and try starting your scooter. It will be a bit loud - two strokes will sound like a chain saw. If it runs with the exhaust pipe off, you know that is the problem

hope this helps
