Hi, Jerry and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.

SOURCE: Yamaha TTR 250, Idling Problem

you might have an air leak somewhere. chack to make sure you did not loose any o-rings from the diaphragm cap or the pilot screw. also check that there are no cracks on the intake boot. VERY LIGHT sprays of the either or carb cleaner can lead you to the source.

Hi
I have been working on my carb today,the pipe from the bottom of the carb should just run down by the bottom of the swinging arm,there should be another pipe from the pipe on the left side of the carb just above the fuel intake which also runs down to the swinging arm and connect to nothing.
Cheers

i would say the answer from polar cycle is good...but if it is not the case....you may take a look at crankshaft seal..sometimes the primary compression is not good if cranks seal leaks and it make the bike running lean in gaz and having you're idle getting up sometimes.........check the transmission oil if its low in quantity even after replacing it recently (this means that you're transmission oil is getting burn by you're motor) and also remove the magneto cover to see if there is gaz accumulation in that area...if so that means the seal leaks on the magneto side.....

Testimonial: "After finally rebuilding the carbs and replacing the reeds and air filter, the problem was actually solved by replacing the crank seal. "

SOURCE: my 426 doesnt idle smoothly.

Replace Gold idle screw on the carb and then keep turning it clockwise till its revving high, Then slowly do it anti clockwise till its idling at a low RPM which you feel right or/and defined in the owners manual.

Bike wont idle when cold, have to open throttle to keep running.


Hi, Anonymous the carburetor throttle shaft wheel has two cables the cable closest to the right side of the bike is the throttle cable and the one closest to the left side is the idle cable. Right about the middle between the two is the idle adjustment bolt it faces out towards the air filter end of the carb . The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle adjustment bolt clockwise to increases idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture bolt you may adjust it as well if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture bolt clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back it out 2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and adjust the idle adjustment bolt accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, adjust the air fuel mixture bolt 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture bolt can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then readjusting the idle adjustment bolt back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture bolt all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

I have a 04 mustang 3.9 v6 and every time I start it, its rev a little high and makes a loud ticking noise but after a few seconds it idols down and the ticking goes away why is that?


Fords do rev high when first started but a breather filter may be dirty,the ticking is probably the valves that haven't gotten oil pressure to them.If it has high miles you may want to use a full synthetic with your next oil change so the valves will be safer from start up wear.I personally use Slik 50 and Quaker State Synthetic Blend...

How do I adjust the idle on a 1994 Yamaha virago 750


Hi, Csbloom614 you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

After running for about a half hour or so it begins to stall in between cuts . . should i adjust the low,high or idle screw


Is the chain being properly oiled? You should get a thin line of oil after running the tip of the saw near to a piece of paper or cardboard for moment or two. Is the saw getting overly hot after running? Clean the cylinder and air passages with compressed air if it is. Check the muffler for any plugging of spark arrestor screen. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then turn both out 1-1/2 turns CCW for a basic setting. Pull throttle full on (after warm up) and adjust H for high engine speed, but 4-stroking that smooths out immediately when cutting. Release throttle and adjust L for fairly smooth idle, but rich enough to allow the engine to 'follow-the-throttle'. Adjust idle speed so that the chain stops moving. Hope this helps.

How do i adjust the idle on my 1995 yamaha virago 1100 cc motorcycle?


On most bikes and four wheelers, this is done by a throttle stop. the position of the stop is usually adjusted by a screw. Remove the tank. turn throttle and see what moves by the carb/ injectors. When you return throttle to idle, the moving piece will come to rest on the throttle stop. You can now adjust its position by turning that screw.
