Assuming your question is, "How do I set it up to idle properly?" Just rebuilding the carburetor isn't enough to get your bike to idle properly. If it idles high, there is either too much air or too much fuel going through the carbs. Were the jet needles replaced at a level appropriate to the air intake? If you also replaced the air intake, i.e., replaced the air box with pods, you will need to reset the jets at a different height. (More air needs needles set to let more fuel pass.) Hope that helps.

You have disturbed the settings of the fuel air mixture and so there is flooding in the cylinder. Now it is possible that the air screw and the idling screw was turned.
remove plug and pump out all the excess flooding by kick starter. Once all the fuelis dispelled turn the screw fully into and then unscrew about one and half times. This must be done for the air screw . The idling screw can be kept about one turn out.
Now start the engine and use the throttle screw to put the engine idle higher than idling speed. now turn the air screw to give a stable point --it will be around this settings.
once done correct the idling and set to correct ticking of the engine. make sure that the timing is correct, the plug gaps are set right.

SOURCE: I need carburetor help for a 1980 Honda CX500.

For parts the best place to look is David Silver Spares, if they don't have it then there is a good chance it isn't available. To synchronise the carbs you will a set of vacuum gauges. They aren't expensive and they come with instructions.

2004 150 runs good but won't idle and idle screw does'nt seem to make a differance


well if it didnt run good i would say carburator needs cleaned or rebuilt.if bike performs fine you can adjust the idle at the hand throtle on handle bar ,just loosen the nut and unscrew a little at a time untill desired idle is acheved and then tighten screw back down.
