On most Mikuni carbs The screw that lines up with the middle of the slide and often has a spring on its shaft to stop it moving is the idle screw, it merely lifts the slide to increase engine revs, the same as opening the throttle and will not change mixture or jetting.

The smaller screw often on an angle, or from underneath is the mixture or air screw. this will affect mixture mainly at idle, low revs, starting.
these are usually set by screwing it all the way in and counting the turns, then back it out the same number of turns to get a start point, usually about 2 turns out from the fully in position. it should only need adjusting about a quarter of a turn either way.

with the bike idling as you turn it in, the engine will start to bog down (rich) as you screw it out the engine should smooth out until it has an uneven idle and change in idle speed up and down(lean) and pick the smoothest idle in the middle, but this should be less than 1 turn from rich to lean

I need to know the proper tuning of ucal mikuni carburetor with mixture adjusting screw on bottom of cabr (beneath float bowl), an idle adjust screw and pilot screw (hopefully pilot fuel screw since s


Why did you need to clean the carb? Routine servicing of the aircleaner would keep the carb clean for life. The pilot screw should be 1.5 turns out approx. with a small adjustment either way. Idle speed is set to a smooth low idle.If this doesn't fix it have you got something in the carb not replaced correctly? The float needle/float assy? How did you clean it? Have you introduced fluff/dirt into the carb and did you blow it clean with an airline?

I have a 03 Yamaha 660 raptor one of the carbs


Did you reset (adjust)the float inthe float chamber to tht carburator which is leaking ?
You will probabley have to adjust tht float to stop from overflowing in other words we call it flooding.
Check the float pin of wear at the tip.
Hope this helps!

Yamaha 2001 Raptor 660, need to clean my carb


Drain and replace the gas with fresh.
Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the inlet. Work your throttle a little then put everything back together and try to start it.

Gas leaking from bottom of carb on 90cc ATV


yes there is a tube that goes on it. It hangs straight down about an inch or two past the botom of the 4 wheelers frame. It is for a overflow of gas, which is usally caused by either dirt in the carb holding the float to high and allowing the gas to just run straight thru and out the bottom of the carb or a bent or maladjusted float setting. But since you said it just started, i would suggest this. I have fixed many and many bikes by simply removing the carb bottom and cleaning it with carb cleaner. It onlty takes a small piece of dirt between the float needle to keep the needle from making a good seat in the carb. Clean it well Please be carefull and keep the carb well away from your face as to not get any blowback of cleaner in your eyes(IT BURNS) This should fix your probblem

Yamaha timberwolf 4x4 carberator issues


Hi,

Firstly, if you are not a mechanical person you should never buy a vehicle that does not run.
However, here are some basic tests.
1. Connect a good battery.
2. Remove the spark plug.
3. Turn the motor using the starter motor or kick starter.
4. check for spark by inserting a new plug into the plug cap. (make sure the plug is grounded).

If the motor turns freely and there is spark, chances are good that the motor will run. This does not mean that the motor is in a good condition. Only with the motor running will you be able to know for sure.

You will now have to source a carb and fit it to the 4 wheeler.
Fitting the carb is not too difficult. Check that the intake manifold is not perished or torn, and remember to use the airfilter.

Enjoy the ride !
