Carb Pilot Screw Adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This might be a dumb question, but can you adjust the carburetor pilot screw on a '99 King Quad while the carb is on the atv?  There doesn't look like there's much clearance between the pilot screw and the cylinder head to get a screwdriver in there (if I'm looking at the right screw).  The engine runs pretty good; there's just a slight hesitation in the lower rpm ranges.

Thanks.

The pilot screw is located inside the bowl of the carb.  I think the one that you are describing which is located on the underside of the carb is the screw that you use to drain the gas out of the bowl. You have to loosen and turn the carb to remove the bowl to adjust it.

Cacrwlr, I apologize. The pilot screw is just outside of the carb bowl toward the front of the atv. I for it mixed up with one of the other ones. You do have to turn the carb to adjust it though. It's a pain.

I'm in the same boat....they DO make a screw driver that accepts different bits that is on a flexible shaft, just like the idle speed screw that pushes the butterfly open via a cable that bends 90 degrees under the carb to the right side of the engine (at least it does on 2000 quadmaster 500)

      has anyone tried these cheap carbs from china? the original carburetor has been rebuilt by a shop right before i bought this quad and i think the float is shot the work done was way sub par... the price of the seal kit was as much as the whole carb... i have used the china 150cc engines with no problems... and have used the harbor freight 212cc engines on mini bikes.. so im hoping to hear so one has used them on this model with ease.... if no one replies i will update in a day or 2 i got the carb it looks very well made. has the carb sencer and warmer all ready installed..

      Found this system and have tried it on my quad (and bikes) had to mod the mount a little to fit my wider bars but that was simple with some aluminum flat stock adding 2" to each side. Simple wiring and all in one unit so did not have to bury an amp....loaded it up with music and also use my bluetooth on phone...wanted to share....its on ebay under firehousetechnology . wanted to share will post more as I ride more but so far so good and simple addition! They are on facebook also under firehouse technology if you wanted to see what they posted

      I hope someone can help me with this.  I recently finished cleaning up an old barn find Quadrunner 230 Shaft drive.  The only thing I lost during the process was the screw that holds the airbox cover in place.  The suzuki part number seems to be 02142-0516A. 
      Naturally I would rather pick one up locally, but I can't find a description of what size the screw is.  I have tries everything in my bin of leftover screws, and nothing fits.
      So the question is, does anyone know what size this screw is, or can anyone tell me how to find out?  I have searched google for cross reference and come up empty.
      Thanks for any help!

      i HAVE A 2008 BAja 250 ur quad, have running problems and electrical rewiring project. I have found this model is made by loncin which has went out business. Have found some parts such as switches that have to be rewired and I think I have a bad stator. Will run till warm and then stops firing. The cdi is new and would not fire at all till I replaced it. Now I have this problem. Can anyone connect me with a good wiring diagram and a good diagnostic  procedure for this 7 wire 3 plug  cdi?
