Anyone k how to set the fuel and air screw on 84try zinger 60cc 3wheeler carberator ?


As long as you know where the air bleed screw is, then do the following; Screw the screw in until it goes no further, (dont force it). Wind the screw out for about 1 and a half turns. Start the motor, you may have to adjust the throttle stop screw t keep the motor running. When the motor is running (at a fairly slow tick over) adjust the air bleed screw outwards a turn or so, if the motor goes faster then your turning the right way, if not, then screw in a bit. What you aim to do is to get the motor running as fast a tickover as possible. When the moto speeds up adjust the throttle stop screw to keep the tickover at a slow speed, It's as easy as that, this setting should be finally made again when the motor has fully warmed up (as the cold start may be in action if the motor is cold).Good luck

Tickover to fast when warmed up.


I don't know the term tickover. If you mean it idles to high then lower the idle. It's a carbed bike right? Idle screw is on backside near front of carb but remember these Twin cams run on oil volume not oil pressure. The bike needs to idle between 1000 - 1200 rpm to maintain proper oil circulation. If you turn the idle down to get that lope or potatoe sound from the bike you can starve the engine of oil and burn it up. These aren't throw away rice rockets of yesteryear.

Tickover to fast when warm, 2000dyna low, where is adjuster.


Idle adjustment on back of carb near front of bike. As stated in another post. The bike NEEDS to idle at 1000 - 1200 rpm for proper oil flow.Anything less and you could starve the bike of proper oil circulation and damage the motor.

Our Moto Guzi Nevada is surging all the time and has been back to a dealer several times and they cant find out what it wrong with it. · Inspect for running rough etc + put on axone scan tool + test...


I am not a Moto Guzi mechanic but in the world of Japanese bikes the problem would be trash in the carb partially blocking the main jet and / or internal fuel circuits. Tighten all fittings, carb to manifold as air leaks could be contributing to the problem. If your bike has fuel injection, have the fuel pump checked. Be sure the gas tank venting is not plugged whether carb or injection. Check and clean the filter screens on the pickup tubes inside the gas tank. Be certain the exhaust pipes are clear of obstructions. An internal collapse inside an exhaust pipe can restrict air flow. The bike can not run properly if it can't get rid of burned gasses. Remove the exhaust pipes briefly to eliminate the exhaust system as a problem. I guess I should mention the obvious, how clean is the air filter? Bikes gotta breathe in and out too. If these ideas don't help, just re-post the problem and perhaps someone else has an idea. Best wishes.

Bike starts fine on choke then ticks over when choke off. within 2-3 mins the revs decrease to the point of stalling. have adjusted tick over to around 900 revs but as soon as engine warm the problem re...


If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.

Vitara JX 1.6 soft-top. Made in Spain 1998. Engine runs at 2000rpm when cold and only returns to idle after 10 mins or 6 miles in warm conditions. Can i adjust anything ? ps. I live in England


maybe slow,cold start,air control valve or,possibly normal for temp in morning,I live in Australia and cars can take ages to slow down in winter eg1 to 3 deg cel...and very quickly warm up in summer..eg....idle slows down in 1/4 time,have a look at the car if you can park it in warmer conds... to see if its quicker as Toyotas do this normally for fast warm up,lastly has it been well serviced...looked after??

Vn800 running fast on tickover


I am not sure what you mean on the "running fast" statement. If idle speed then turn the idle screw outward to slow down the idle.

The backfire is caused by turning off the ignition key when the bike is at high revs. let it idle down THEN turn it off. The backfire is there because the carb idle circuit is active anytime the piston is in motion. Gas goes into the cylinder as the bike revs down then a hot spot in the exhaust pipe finally ignites the built up gas. There is your backfire.

Is the running fast question answered? Give me more information on the problem if it isn't.

Please rate this answer. Thanks njv6!

Kawasaki GT 550 - erratic tickover


Put a carby kit through it and clean, inspect and blow all ports through, check intake rubbers for any leaks, (pin holes can change air fuel ratio) Especially check for obstructions in your idle/bypass jet, do the kit first so you know its right, then tune your idle mix until steady.

Daytona 955i running hot


That is quite normal - these bikes run very hot and will typically reach temp where fan kicks in (103 deg C) while bike is sitting at idle, even if not particularly hot weather. Needs good airflow through the rad to keep the temp down. 
Fortunately, when fan comes on it lowers the temp quite quickly.
