If you were to log on to the kawasaki's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge. Failing that there ar a number of sites selling instruction/service manuals.

I hope this helps.

How do i stop the engine running at a fast idle


Assuming it is a completely mechanical system with no electrical or electronic control there is no actual fast idle facility unless it is provided by a Waxstat cable device fitted into the cooling system.

I think what you mean is the engine idle speed is too fast rather than it is running at "fast idle" which is a term used for a raised idle speed when an engine is cold and decreases as the engine warms until at normal operating temperature the idle speed should be normal. On an old diesel engine it is the Waxstat device if fitted that provides this facility or a hand operated throttle. Very old cars and trucks had hand throttles for fast idle but later this function was provided by the choke or strangler mechanism. Some luxury cars had an electrical device fitted but the fast idle of modern engines is invariably provided by electronics.

I expect you need to adjust the throttle stop screw of the injection pump. This is at the lever where the throttle linkage connects to the pump and there is generally two stop screws fitted that limit the travel of the lever. One screw limits the maximum travel of the lever and therefore the maximum engine speed and this is generally set during manufacture or remanufacture and sealed to prevent tampering.
The other screw is the idle screw which the lever is pulled against by a spring when at rest.
Before adjustment it is necessary to ensure the throttle linkage is not maladjusted and preventing the lever contacting the stop. Disconnecting the linkage until the idle speed has been adjusted will ensure this and then slacken the stop screw locknut, start the engine and turn the screw in or out as applicable until the desired idle speed is achieved, allow the engine to warm up and make further adjustment if necessary and tighten the locknut and reconnect the throttle linkage. Do not adjust any pump screw except the idle screw.

Good luck!

86 gmc k1500 5.7L just replaced carb and now cant get engine to idle


Check that you have replaced the vacuum line for the distributor to the base of the carby block. Turn the 2 idle mixture screws all the way in till they touck the bottom. Then turn both out about 2 full turns . Get the engine running and hold at fast idle and adjust screws until a steady idle is achieved . Allow to idle and screw each screw in or out slightly until even idle is achieved. You will hear the engine revs increase or decrease when you have gone too far so adjust to about the middle of turns

Fast idle sometimes, normal idle sometimes. 2001 Chev Venture 3.4. engine runs fast enough to hold 50mph with throttle closed. Cruise control is disconnected as I thought it might be that. What's...


Vacuum leak somewhere? I remember the older 4.3 TBI (pre 97) when the throttle body base gaskets would develop a leak the idle would go sky high.

Fast idle


The specification calls for 900 rpms for the idle speed when warm for the 1987 Dodge Shadow.

One can adjust this with a screw on the carburetor, if it has one.

If it's fuel injected the idle speed is automatically controlled.

Fast Idle Speed HOLLEY 5220/6520 Fig. 5: Turn the adjusting screw with a screwdriver to raise or lower the fast idle speed — make sure that the adjusting screw is resting against the lowest speed step 86735g04.gif
NOTE: This procedure is performed while the carburetor is installed on the engine.
  1. On 1981–82 cars, disengage the two-way electrical connector at the carburetor (red and tan wires).
  2. On all years, disconnect the jumper wire at the radiator fan and install a jumper wire so that the fan runs continuously.
  3. On 1983–86 models, pull the PCV valve out of the valve cover and allow it to draw underhood air.
  4. Disengage the oxygen sensor system connector located on the left fender shield near the shock tower.
  5. Ground the carburetor switch with a jumper wire.
  6. Open the throttle slightly and place the adjustment screw on the slowest speed step of the fast idle cam.
  7. With the choke fully open, adjust the fast idle speed to comply with the value indicated on the underhood sticker.
  8. Return the vehicle to curb idle, then reposition the adjusting screw on the slowest speed step of the fast idle cam to verify fast idle speed. Re-adjust as necessary.
  9. Turn the engine OFF, remove the jumper wire and reconnect the fan.
  10. Reinstall the PCV valve and remove the tachometer. On 1983–86 models, reattach the oxygen sensor system connector, and remove the jumper wire from the carburetor.
Fast Idle Opening MIKUNI
  1. Before adjustment, leave the carburetor alone for approximately one hour at 73°F (23°C).
  2. Adjust the fast idle opening by turning the fast idle adjusting screw to the following specified values (drill diameter):
    • 2.6L engines equipped with manual transaxles — 0.028 in.
    • 2.6L engines equipped with automatic transaxles — 0.031 in.
Choke Valve Setting MIKUNI Fig. 6: After tightening the choke cover lockscrews, cut the heads off of lockscrews A (total of 3 screws) and stake the heads of lockscrews B (total of 2 screws) with a blunt punch 86735g56.gif
NOTE: This procedure need only be performed if the carburetor is disassembled.
  1. Fit the strangler spring to the choke lever.
  2. Assemble the choke valve, aligning the inscribed line or black painted line on the tooth of the choke pinion with the inscribed line on the cam lever.
  3. Temporarily tighten the new lockscrews.
  4. Set the choke valve by moving the pinion arm up or down, align a punched mark on the float chamber cover at the center of the three inscribed lines, and secure the pinion arm with the lockscrews.
  5. Install the choke cover and tighten the lockscrews.
  6. Cut off the heads off of lockscrews A.
  7. Stake the heads of lockscrews B using a blunt punch.
Vacuum Kick HOLLEY 5220/6520 NOTE: This procedure is performed while the carburetor is installed on the engine. If the vacuum kick is adjusted to open the choke too far, the engine may stall or idle very roughly just after cold start. If it is adjusted so that the choke does not open enough, there may be black smoke in the exhaust. NOTE: To perform this procedure, you will need a hand held vacuum pump capable of producing at least 15 in. Hg (50.6 kPa) of vacuum. The vacuum kick diaphragm may be damaged if you attempt to retract it manually. You will also need a drill or dowel which has a diameter equivalent to the specification for Vacuum Kick in the Carburetor Specifications Chart.
  1. Remove the air cleaner. Open the throttle, close the choke and hold it in the closed position, and then release the throttle to trap the fast idle cam in the choke-closed position.
  2. Disconnect the vacuum hose at the choke vacuum kick diaphragm. Connect a vacuum pump and apply 15 in. Hg (50.6 kPa) or more of vacuum.
  3. Gently move the choke blade toward the closed position just until play is eliminated from the vacuum kick linkage (so that the vacuum kick is determining choke blade position).
  4. Insert the drill or dowel into the gap between the upper edge of the choke blade and the air horn wall, toward the center of the gap. The dowel or drill should just fit into the gap. If necessary, rotate the Allen head screw in the center of the diaphragm housing to create the proper gap and then recheck with the measuring device.
  5. Restore all vacuum connections and reinstall the air cleaner.

What kind of carb does the 76 c10 4x4 come with need to adjust


mcdevito75 here, The fast idle is needed when the engine is cold to make the air and fuel mixture rich to keep the engine running while cold, the carb. choke doew this with a bi-metalic spring in that balck round box on the side of the carb, a screw also hepls keep the choke closed until warm up, this screw can be adjusted tpo control how tight it holds the choke cloesed, here"s how to adjust this screw to slow fast idle speed, Locate on the carb, where the gas pedal connects, have a friend operate the gas pedal with the engine off, once you locate the linkage, you"ll also see 2 screws with springs around them, 1 is for fast idle the other for regular idle, you want the fast idle screw, notice this screw will lay against and Half moon shaped tab, while the other screw lays against a shaft, you need the screw that lays against the half moon shaped tab. Start the engine and step on the gas pedal slightly and relaease, at the screw that lays against this half moon, simply turn it counter clockwise or toward you just 1 2 or 3 turns very slowly, you'll hear the fast idle come down but you don"t want the fast idle to low, listen to the engine very carefully, slow it down just a bit, it should still race though but not out of control. Of course for a full carb, adjustment the shop should handle that., but this info will help.

Need to adjust 3 screws. I already try to adjust them, but it runs too fast or dies. Cannot get it right. I know I have to turn in low and high all the way and then unscrew about 1 1/4 turn back. Where to...


ok here goes. you are write to wind out the screws 1 1/4 turns +/-

you have 2 scews for the carb jets, the other is the idle speed adjuster. it has a conical shaft which simply open the throtle more as you screw it in. wind this in so that it will run a bit fast . if you can, start the saw. Without pulling the throttle, slowly turn the "low" jet in , or out untill the saw runs faster. if it starts running too fast, adjust the idle speed scew down a little. do this untill it is running best. adjust the idle speed down until the cahin just stops moving. the low speed is now set. now pull the trigger and run the saw full throttle. adjust the "high" jet in or out slightly until it is running fastest. Note..if you turn either screw in too far, the engine will stall.

I hope this helps,

Another thing that could cause problems is if there is an air gap between the carb and the cylinder. check that fixing screws are tight. check that the gasket is ok. some saws have a small rubber manifold between the carb and the cylinder. if this manifold is perferated or damaged,it will let air into the engine, and therefore will not run right.
good luck.

1998 roadking idles to fast after it warms up.


Is it fuel injected or carbureted? If the bike is fuel injected it will idle fast until the engine warms up...if it continues to idle fast after about 10-15 seconds it could have a faulty sensor.

If carbureted, after you push the choke in does it still idle fast? If so, there is an idle adjust screw on the top of the carburetor just behind the air cleaner.

Do you have a tach on the bike? If you do, then the normal warmed-up idle should be 1000rpm.

Just bought 2001 suzuki savage and when i start it up i see oil dripping from the front


Probably the gasket is worn, and doesnt seals the cover to the oilcarter.
drain the oil..open the cover...replace the seal(gasket)...cover back on,turn the screws tight but not to tight...put oil back in...start the engine let it idle for 3 minutes then rev it to apr. 4000 and hold it for 1 minute...kill the engine, check the screws and tighten hard if needed.
That should stop leaking from the front, so you can get back to riding again.
greetings.....Gilbert.
