Unless the carburetor has been modified, the only adjustment is the idle speed. The Idle Stop screw is located at the upper right side of the carb. You may have to remove the air cleaner cover to access the screw. Clockwise rotation increases the idle speed. Adjust the idle speed with the engine at full operating temperature.

2003 Harley Sportster XL 1200 backfires through carburetor


Hi, James if your carburetor or exhaust is:
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp build up of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.
BACKFIRING is usually caused by a sticky/tight intake valve or a timing issue, 180 degrees out or cam chain off 1or 2 teeth.

Air idle mixture screw on a Carburetor 2006 sportster


The idle mixture screw is on the bottom of the carb behind the float bowl. Unless it has been modified, this screw is covered by an "anti-tamper" plug and you cannot get to it to make an adjustment. If you wish to make it adjustable. You'l have to take the carb off the engine, turn it upside down and drill out the anti-tamper plug. Be very careful doing this or you'll destroy the screw underneath the plug.

Good Luck
Steve
