Most carbs are the same. Close both the high and low needles. (Note: Do not overtighten, you can damage needle.) Open them up 2 full turns. Start the engine and let it warm up. May be a little tough to start if you have removed carb and rebuilt. With engine running pull throttle to full capacity. Now close the low needle slowly, listening to the engine. When it starts to get lean you will hear the rpm start to go back down. Make sure you stop at the most optimum setting. At this point open the low needle 1/4 turn so as not to have too lean a mixture. Please note that the engine must be warm in order to get the right setting. You may have to do this a couple of times to get it right. Then move on to the high needle and do the same thing. Once you set both needles it should be fine.

How do you lower the idle on a 2004 cr125?

There should be a screw in the carb body turning this in raises the tick over turning out lowers it normally. Check the throttle cable[s] adjuster is set correctly. Also check that the throttle action is free running if the cable is not well lubed this can prevent the carb slide from seating at the proper level inside the carb. Some bike have adjusters on the carb top make sure this is not keeping the slide from seating. If you get somewhere fairly quiet open the throttle about half way and let go you should hear a metallic clink as the slide seats on the stop.

I get a ticking noise in the carb when I turn the key on sounds like a silinoid

the ticking noise your hearing is the mixture control solenoid from your carb and its perfectly normal. It should go for 25 seconds when key is on and engine not running. When engine is running you should hear it all the time. If you dont hear it when engine is running then you have a problem

Bike splutters then takes off..bacfire when starting sometimes..gets beta if you thrash it..hav narrowed it to the carb, an was after the stock settings cr80 2001

i take it the carb isnt the original one? well you can still set it up for the bike take the carb of and remove the bottom and check the floats there shouldnt be petrol flowing out of the overflow pipe when the bike is running when you have done that take the top of the carb apart and remove the needle valve from the top its connected to the throttle cable blow down the jets to clean them out re assemble the carb
there is 2 screws on the side of the carb 1 is the air screw the other is the tick over turn them both in till they are tight then turn them 2 turns out
when you start the bike it might run fast at idle or backfire if it does adjust the top screw for tick over(idle) the bottom screw for running better

hope this helps

Bike starts fine on choke then ticks over when choke off. within 2-3 mins the revs decrease to the point of stalling. have adjusted tick over to around 900 revs but as soon as engine warm the problem re...

If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.

No problem just done top end rebuild

Just ride it normally. Avoid super high revs when the bike is not in gear and using the power.

Please rate this solution. Thanks bookerm!

Loud tapping noise from carberator

Is the ticking coming from the mixture control solenoid. Unplug the two pin connector on top of the carb and see if the ticking stops. If it does then plug it back in and leave it, it is normal that it clicks. It is the carb switching from lean to rich and back again.

Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 (not FI) funky sound after shut down

Hi, Yes it is an electric fuel pump and the ticking is the pump working. So if you hear the ticking your pump should be OK. After turning off the petcock and running the carbs dry the next time you turn it back on you should leave the kill switch on and turn the key on and wait till the ticking stops, turn the key off and back on and wait for the ticking to stop again. You should do this a couple of times to make sure the system fills. Normally you should always use your kill switch to turn off your engine. Also under normal conditions you will not hear the ticking as it only ticks a couple of times to fill the system once it is full. Good Luck to you, This should Fixya!
