Is the air fuel mixture screw the black knob on the side of the carb? and how do i probly adjust it? and if that doesnt fix it where do i find the jetting and how do i properly adjust that?


Hi, Charlie it should be noted that your performance issues are not electrical ie. faulty charging system, battery condition, and connections etc. If your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

Air fuel mixture problem


if your plugs are black, the bike is too rich. lean out your mixture screw a little at a time until it seems riight. hard for me to tell you exactly when it's set without me seeing or feeling it myself.

Fuel Mixture Ratio Is it - 25:1 40:1 50:1


not sure if yo are changing the jets out but if your using the original screws and jets screw both screws in till they stop then turn 1 and a half turns out they try starting if it kicks and won't run then turn each screw another 1/2 turn out try starting if it runs rough adjust the gas jet a little bit till it runs smooth once it warms up give it full gas and you should get just a slight puff of black smoke to be set right, if it's too lean it will get hot and will be hard to start if it dies, if that happens then give it extra gas. once warmed up it should idle without dyeing if it dies adjust the idle screw up 1/4 turn at a time till it runs at idle without holding the gas trigger, be sure you replace the in line fuel filter and fuel line first then clean the air filter before doing any adjustments. most problems are caused by plugged fuel filter due to ethanol in the gas.

Chances are the air filter is extremely wet. Air can't get through a wet filter, and if no air can flow through the carb, no gas can flow through either. Remove the filter and try again to get the engine started. I assume you drained and cleaned the gas tank already. If still no joy, remove the carb and clean it using spray carb cleaner. Remove the air screw and throttle screw and spray into the screw holes as well as all the little drill holes in the carb body. The object here is to clean out the pilot jet and idle circuit. When re-assembling the carb, put the air and throttle screws back in and turn them inward until they LIGHTLY seat. Now open each of them up one and one half turns. This is the factory setting. Please rate my answer.

The air mixture screw does not make my mixture richer or leaner


Unless your vehicle is really old and has a carburetor there shouldn't be an air mixture screw. Air and fuel mixture ratios on engines with Electronic Fuel Injection or EFI are controlled by the vehicle computer witch receives and sends information to and from a slew of different sensors like the oxygen sensors, throttle position sensor, the idle air control valve, Etc. Chances are you have EFI on your vehicle. If your engine is running rough or lacks power, try a complete tune up. New spark plugs/wires, new fuel filter, new air filter, oil and filter change, new oxygen sensors. Try running a bottle of injector cleaner and a bottle of water remover through the vehicle and see if it helps. Hope this helps.

Bike sputtering & change of exhaust may nedd re-jetting??


generally when installing after market performance exhaust, jetting the carb is necessary. until you get ahold of the previous owner and find out if the carb has been jetted, you can try and adjust the fuel air mixture screw and see if that helps. and like any engine especially bikes, it is possible to sieze the piston. it can be riden, but be careful of over heating. hope this helps...

Honda 2003 crf 230 bike idles fine with choke on,dies with choke off


You sound like you have a blocked idle jet in the carb. Honda trail bikes love new oil, clean air cleaners and clean fuel. After a while a build up of tannins and crusty residue will invade the carby bowl and usually migrate through the carb via the jets and the emulsion tube where the jet needle runs. The easiest way to fix your problem is to remove the carb and go through it. Clean all jets and check float height and generally get it back to scratch. You will have to re- adjust your idle and mixture settings after you have fited it back to the bike. If you are not Mechanicaly savi then I would suggest you take the bike in to your local honda dealer and get them to go through the carb for you.. It's not a big problem and is easlily fixed.

Hope this helps...

Cheers...
