SOURCE: Mixture screw on Carb

I believe it is near the bottom, around where the float bowl meets the carb body.. You need a straight small screwdriver (Short) facing upward.

SOURCE: Carb (Mikuni) flooding on Yamaha Vmax motor cycle

I had a similar problem. For the float needle there is a seat that it goes into, check this for dirt first, then if no dirt present, the brass part (not the needle but the part it seats into) has an o-ring where it mates to the carb body. If that o-ring is not tightly sealed it will allow fuel to bypass. I found o-rings very cheap at pep boys just take an old one with you to match for size. very cheap too. (under 5 dollars)

That was an atmospheric vent you found that should not have gas in it. If it does, the carb has over flowed. It probably needs to be cleaned with special attention paid to the needle valve and float assemblies.It is routed up high to prevent water and debris from entering it and clogging it up. It should have holes for it to pass through on the snorkel coming out of the air box behind the gas tank under the seat.

I own a kawasaki kx 100 motox bike,,its a 2003 model,i want to know what? the settings are for the carb


What settings? Air fuel mixture?
to start with only you can set this
1. You need to know what a plug looks like
whens it's burning to rich or lean.
2. One carb? Turn mixture screw in all the way
go out 2 full revolutions
3. Crank bike if it will let it run give it gas
the sound of the motor should tell you
witch ways you need to go once u get it or think
you do take it for a ride then pull plug once coold
if the plug looks to lean turn the screw a
qurter turn out till you get it just right
do the same if it's to rich lookn on plug.
dose this carb also have a high/low mix
screws as well?

So i was wondering i changed the spark plug on my bike including all oils, also included a costume yamaha fuel filter bike started fine rode it. Than second time i started it i forgot to turn gas line...


hi, the problem is that your bike is running to rich( to much fuel from carb to engine) so its the un-burned fuel mix that your seeing on your plug and thats fouling it out......now this is caused by either to rich of fuel mixture(you should be mixing 32:1) or you need to rejet carb so it delivers less fuel to engine... your carb has a jet in it and the # is stamped on it ( if you take the carb off and remove the bowl( 4 screws) you will see it,it will have an octagon shaped head.) for example if the # on it is 55 then you need to go with a 53 or 54...... also a good sign you need to rejet with a smaller jet is your bike will spooge(leak) a black oily residue from exhaust pipe and muffler( same residue thats fouling the spark plug.)

Spark plug keeps blowing on my kx 100


if your fouling plugs then either your fuel/mix ratio is off ( should be mixing 32:1 ) (or) your bike is running to rich( getting to much fuel to engine) which means you need to rejet the carb....example:( if you have a #50 jet,you need a #48 or 49) to install a new jet, #1.)remove carb,#2.)remove the bowl(4-screws),you will see the jet and #3.)unscrew jet and replace with smaller # ( number is stamped on the jet.) you can get jets from local motorcycle dealer( but they will probably have to order them). or go online to bikebandit.com enter your bikes year,make,model,ect.and just order from them........

Just rebuilt carbs, the bike starts but i have to hold my hand a little over the top of the air box,seal around carbs and air box seem tight what could it be? the bike says on top of the back fender no...


First is your choke open or closed when you startthe bike.Try adjusting your carb a/f mix as you are running rich (high fuel mix ratio). Good enough?

Need info on ajusting idle and fuel air mix screw on a linmax 90


Adjust the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb as follows. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. This is the stock setting for your carb.

The 2003 WR250F keeps dying.


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw on the outside throat of the
carb and the air screw on the back left of the carb bore as seen from the filter. Spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

The carb has a diaphragm fuel primer pump Each time the throttle is cracked open the pump give a shot of gas. This is fine for take off but downshifting can create a rich mix. A rich mix promotes backfire. Just don't crack the throttle.

My yz 125 02, is splutering and is strugleing to pull off in 1st gear, i am told it is running too rich and i need to ajust the fuel mixture screw. How do i find this??


The fuel mix screw is otherwise known as the idle screw.

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the

Carb adjustment


it started running rough again. I checked the plugs and they are black already. To me this means the carb is running rich but I don't know which screw to turn to lean the mix. I'm hoping that will fix the problem. Anyone know what I should do and if it might be another problem?Do a compression check. If you got fuel air and spark then the only thing you are lacking is compression. That is if the fuel to air ratio is correct. Im not sure about the carbs on that bike so cant help you with the adjustment.,,,
