SOURCE: Victa 2 stroke starts OK then stops

After much mucking about, discovered that the washer on the fuel cap is missing. When the fuel cap is tightened it seals the fuel tank. Eventually the motor is starved.
It then starts and runs for progressively shorter periods.

SOURCE: how do i adjust the rich/lean fuel mixture cracked intake

You can't do it with out a tech 2 scanner, so your going to have to go back to the Mechanic to have it reprogrammed. As long as it's running rich, your going to have bad fuel economy and will not pass the emission test when you have to have it done. Good luck and glad to know you got your car running almost 100%

SOURCE: How do I adjust the fuel mixture on a 1999 CL1500

Turn the fuel screws in until lightly seated. Back out 2 full turns on each carb. start bike and let it get to operating temp. turn screw out, or in to achieve highest idle for each carb. reset idle to about 1100-1300 rpms. Go back and forth between carbs and setting the idle. Rev bike a couple of good times and see that the idle drops normal with out stalling. Chaz Moto DC

SOURCE: Fuel Mixture Screws breaking down at full revs

Hello Brad; frequent adjustment can hide a larger problem that ends with saw failure. Adjust for performance. From your description probably only need tweak "H" needle try CCW a little.
Carburetor Adjustment by

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

What is default fuel screw setting turn outside of pulsar model 2014

If it's running well, I'd put in fresh plugs and then try to "tune" it.
With the engine running at low to mid RPM lean it out until the revs increase, and then drop. Back off on the adjust until the RPM peak, then another 1/3 turn. Run for 5 to 10 minutes. Let lool, check spark plug for desired colour.

Why does my poulan 2075 runs with choke on but not when i push the choke in?

Crank seals could be leaking air in,or carb settings incorrect.screw both mixture screws right in,then out 1.5 turns..set low mixture screw for highest idle,you may need to unscrew the idle screw a bit to keep revs down.adjust H mixture screw at full revs,to get max revs,then unscrew 1/4 turn.may need to reset idle

My poulan starts easy and idles with the choke pull out but will not stalls out when gas is rev..It runs only seconds when choke is pushed in

It is sounds like it is running too lean ( fuel starvation ) before doing anything else replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, check the fuel hoses up to the carb for leaks or signs of cracks, many later machines have anti tamper screws on the carb, it maybe that the mixture needs to be richened up a little, if you just have standard slots in the adjuster screws, make an adjustment to the H and the L screw, turn them out 1/4 turn on each, check the running now, the L screw will adjust the fuel mixture from idle up to half throttle, the H screw will adjust the mixture from half throttle to full revs, if it hesitates on pick up adjust the L screw a further 1/4 turn. If it sounds rich at full revs wind the H screw in slightly, be aware the H screw can lean the mixture off enough to seize the machine if screwed in too far, if you have a tacometer the max revs should not exceed 12500.

The mixture screw has its main effect at idle.It is called the idle mixture screw. So may not help fuel consumption a lot.

To adjust it.
turn it in until it stops and count the number of turns exactly(so you can put it back if adjusting doesnt work)
Then screw it back out to the original position, and start the bike.
If you screw it out about half a turn, from the original position, the revs should rise and then become uneven, with the revs rising and falling(this is lean)
If you screw it in half a turn from the original setting, the revs should slow down and maybe stall the engine(rich)
Pick a place in between the two, where the idle is smoothest.

Of course make sure the bike is serviced first, clean or new air filter, new plug, new oil, adjust valve clearances(if it has valves) check tyre pressures, adjust chain (or replace if old)
The new air filter may make the biggest difference, as it gets dirty or old,it will richen the mixture right through the rev range.
And fix the shift key on your keyboard please.

85 xj700 runs rich, terrible mileage, and "bogs

Is there an air fuel mixture adjustment screw? I'd try lookin for one and adjust it a little and see what happens. Sounds like your mixture is way too rich. A more lean mixture won't bog down, but too lean of a mixture will bring your idle speed up too high

I have problems starting my eton 70 cc four stroke. it turns over but wont start is there atrick to starting these

If the Fuil is old it wont start and if the mixture is to rich it wont start. Other then that check the plug for signs of Fuil and if none then clean the carburator and lines.

Suzuki gsxr750 slingshot 89 K just overhauled carbs rough tick over stalls can i adjust mixture/air high revs no prob

You should be able to drill out the A/F caps on the mixture screws if they are still in place. It sounds like you still have a blocked pilot jet circuit though if it runs well at higher revs when the main jet takes over.

As with all 2 strokes if you have compression and a reasonable spark, you only need fresh fuel with correct oil ratio) and they must go !(as long as you haven't fiddled first and all gaskets are sealing) I start mine by(1) pumping the primer till it is firm,(2) full choke,(3) pull till it kicks ONCE,(4) half choke, pull till it runs,allow to warm up and(5) switch to run (you may need to apply a bit of throttle while pulling as in (4)(or give it a few more pumps if it dies) If all is ok, check that when properly warmed up there is a smooth transition from idle to full revs, if it hesitates it may need the LOW SPEED mixture leaning (clockwise) SLIGHTLY.If it dies the LOW SPEED mixture may need richening(anti-clockwise)(adjust 1/8 turn at a time) Make sure that motor is just peaking at full revs and is on the RICH side of peaking (HIGH SPEED mixture)(this will avoid seizing it Adjust both till it revs cleanly and is JUST rich at full, and idleing nicely and it should start without too much trouble.(If you have fiddled and are lost,-about 2 1/2 turns out from closed on both needles should get you started)
