My Yamaha Enticer 340 wont idle off of choke. What could be the problem? I have taken the carb off and cleaned all the jets. It idles on choke and will run off choke if the throttle is at half or full,...

your idler jetsa are blocked ,on this carb their should be an air screw as well so it might not be set right ,this air screw should be about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 a turn out as a rough guide .Now another favourite trick of mine is to open the drain screw on the bottom of the carb then pull the feed pipe off the tank from the fuel shut off and fill the carb with brake and clutch cleaner ,spraw it down the pipe and leave overnight ,this will hopefully unblock any very small jets within the carb body ,Yes i know its a bodge and its not the correct way but it does work on old engine with carbs like my aux outboard or my motor bike .

I have a older model # 30 jiffy ice auger and i can not seem to keep it running consistanly. I was wandering what the carburator adjustments are. The low idle screw and the high idle screw where do I start...

Hello Randy. I can talk you through making adjustments to your Jiffy ice auger engine.
1. Read through the whole list before you start adjusting.
2. Close both jets GENTLY
3. Open the Low speed 1/4 turn
4. Open high speed jet 1 1/4 turn
5. Start engine.
6. Adjust low speed until idling smoothly.
7. Open her up wide open.
8. Adjust High speed until engine transitions smoothly from idle to high speed without bogging.
9. Shut engine off. Let it cool.
10. Once engine is cold. Fire it up and let it idle for 30 secs. Open it up wide open again. Adjust if necassary.

NOTE 1: The trick with the Jiffy's is to tune them during cold (ice fishing) weather.
NOTE 2: Low speed screw,the one on the left.
NOTE 3: High speed on the right.

Good luck ice fishing! Regards, Joe

2008 Yamaha vx deluxe will only run about 30 mph

if the motor is reaching full revs look at the jet assemby for fouling or prop damage. If it is not reaching full revs get authorised mechanic to fix it, it will be cheaper in the long run.

Yamaha 570 exciter..wont start or run when cold

You need a richer mixture than normal in a cold engine. It sounds like your machine is too lean on the idle circuit. Turn the air screw in on each carb to richen it up. Also, verify the choke is working properly.
