This is the CV 40mm stock carb? What is the problem? Do you want to tune the carb to the exhaust.. this is a common thing to do when owners change the pipes.

The first thing to do on this carb is to be sure there are no air leaks at the intake and you can check the slider by lifting it gently and then letting it go. It should "drop" with some resistance, it it does it is probable OK. Don't take the top off the carb.

Next is the idle jet.. what is in your carb? #42? They make a 44(after market) or 45 and 48, This will make the carb "fatter" at idle only. Next is the main jet.. going up in the numbers makes it run richer.. bigger pipes usually need a little more fuel. I recently bought jets and they were about $7.00 a piece from my local Indy..

Do small changes at a time.. learn to read your plugs.. a rich engine is OK.. a lean engine is BAD.. get the timing spot on and get an ext set or two of cheap plugs and dial the bike in.. always put the filter back on when dialing it in.. here is a great site for further reading..

How do i lean out carb on 2003 dyna


This is done by changing the main jet for full throttle adjustments, adjusting the metering rod (jet needle) clip position for midrange and the pilot (slow) jet for idle and just off idle. There is also usually a mixture screw on the carb somewhere, location depending on which carb, that will also control the low speed mixture. Why are you wanting to lean the jetting. If a carb becomes rich for some reason the solution would be to fix the problem not band-aid it with leaner jetting.

What is the factory setting of the idle mixture screw on a 1997 Dyna Wide Glide?


If your bike is equipped with the original Keihen CV carb, you should not be able to adjust the idle mixture as the mixture adjustment screw was covered by an "anti-tamper" plug from the factory. If someone has drilled this out, there has probably been some other modifications made as well. The initial setting for this carb is about 3 1/4 turn off the bottom.

Good Luck

Where is idle and can I adjust it myself, on my 2003 dyna lowrider?


You can adjust it IF your bike is equipped with a carb. You may have to take the outer air filter cover off. Look at the top of the carb. Just to right of the round looking top is the idle stop screw. Clockwise to speed it up.

Good Luck

Missfiring


I don't know which carb you have, whether it is a S&S or whatever. Try adjusting the low-end adjustment on the trottles throat. It may take a few trys as I, nor aparently you, know which way it needs to go with limited information. But I believe that this is where your problem lies.
