Vacuum changes with the weather and the Rpm of the motor. When you are setting carburetors it is important to adjust the idle constantly to your bikes standard idle speed and just make sure all mercury levels/dial gauge readings are the same for all the carburetors, or as close as you can get to being the same.

Vacuum leak symptoms

Hi Werner, you can spray starting fluid or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head and intake manifold to carburator, if RPM's rise you have a leak. Also check for cracks in vacuum line from carburator to fuel valve. Your carburator came from the factory set up on the lean side for maximum 42-50 MPG. The spark plugs will burn a very lite tan to white color usually white. If you are happy with your gas milage and performance and your oil temperature is between 180 and 220 then let sleeping dogs lay/lie. Good luck

I have a '06 zzr600


Some bikes have a vacuum petcock. Whenever the bike started up the petcock opened itself up and whenever it shut down, the petcock shut down too. Check to see if the petcock is set to on. Check to see if the fuel line is hooked up. Check to see if you have a vacuum line, and if it's hooked up. Check to see if the gas tank were possible vacuum locking due to a clogged vent. Alternately haul off the carbs and clean them out. Check to see if the fuel filter is clogged. Also after cleaning the carb and refitting it you will need to add vacuum to that fitting. It is a safety devise to shut the fuel off to the carb. In case the rider forgets a small hand vacuum pump from harbor freight will do the job just fine

I'm thinking about buying a 2007 Honda sabre 1100.Is it fuel injected or do they have carburators?

I believe the 2007 Sabres are still carburated. I owner an 07 shadow and it was carburated. Still is a great bike and its ultra responsive. You won't be able to tell the difference.

My 2007 FLHX seems to be missing & fluxuates at idol. Any ideas?

Sounds like an intake vacuum leak. A vacuum leak will cause the idle to go up and down. If the bike is carburated, no problem. If it's fuel injected, I have no idea as to how much trouble it is to repair it as I do not work on fuel injected engines.

Bought 99 zzr600 with restrictor

for most bikes, you need to buy an aftermarket ignition module/computer module, as the factory one is set to meet emmision controls, and engine protection. the cost varries from bike to bike , but its always worth it if you want to use the full potential of the bike

1984 Toyota tercel wagon

Although this isn"t a proper fix, and may affect emissions, I ran accross this problem on a friend's 87 2wd wagon.

There is a dashpot that controls a lever the Idle set screw is on, I am guessing it is a decel valve that closes butterfly when coasting in gear. I never looked at a manual to figure out what controls the vacuum valve that is on the passenger side of the engine compartment, but if you disconect the vacuum line and plug it that lever will not back off and idle will remain where you set it with the adjustment screw.

Make sure the engine is warmed up and not on a fast idle cam before adjusting idle.

The car is a 5 speed, I not sure if automatic cars are the same.

The car idles fine now and still run's great and gets 37+ MPG with 240000 miles!

If you want to fix it properly you would have to diagnose why that dashpot is being actuated at idle
