Question about Yamaha V-Max Motorcycles
Air screws can be altered slightly for your elevation. Stock setting is for sea level conditions. Example if all your riding is at 1000 ft elevation maybe your standard setting should be 2 and 1/8th turns. I suggest you try resyncing your carburetors. One or more of your carburetors may be set too high or too low , causing the slow return to idle. As you adjust your carbs remember to keep resetting your idle to the recommended RPM. If you decide to try a different air screw setting be sure to double check all you intake manifolds for cracks or separation from the flange, air leaks will also effect your idle. Altering the air box can effect your carb intake vacuum (vacuum carbs are sensitive to this.).
