The long screw sticking out of the throat of the carb is the throttle screw. Just turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

2. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
3. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
4. Pilot/slow fuel jet clogged.
5. Faulty accelerator pump.
6. Float level too low.
7. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
8. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
9. Fuel line to carburetor kinked or pinched.
10. Fuel filter clogged.
11. Intake manifold leak.
12. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.

Honda shadow vt1100c 1986 idile to low after running awhile


There's an idle adjustment screw. The bike runs faster when cold because the fuel\air adjustment is richer on a cold engine. When the bike warms up, the fuel becomes more lean in mixture because the heat causes the fuel to expand, i.e., less molecules of fuel to the firing sequence of the piston. When the bike is warmed up, after say ten minutes, the heat causes a leaner mixture, so adjust the idle on a hot engine (about 1000 rpm more or less). The bike will idle faster when cold, then drop rpm's as the engine warms up. Good luck

750 shadow running lean. How do i fix this? Pilot screw adjustment?


why do you think the bike is running lean ? - DOT dictates that the idle srew head be soldered filled to stop tampering ( i believe ) - most bikes run correctly if the carbs are maintained, and kept in adjustment as to factory specs -- normally you will not have to touch them

AERO 750 STALLS EVEN AFTER WARMUP - IDLE LOW ?


The idle is a great place to start. If you have a normal bike with no engine mods ie exhaust, jet work then you need to screw the idle screw all the way in, then back it out 2 and a half turns.

1986 Honda Accord Dx keeps dying out.


Have you checked you plug wires?? I would also check your idle speed that can cause the car to die. If it is carb. then it may need to get a choke replaced.
