Thoughts on this carburetor adjust

Recommended Posts

So there is always chatter of the air/fuel mixture screw accessibility on the carburetors we all work on.   So I found this clip and thought it was interesting.   This goes back to a post today about carburetors not having an air/fuel adjustment screw as well as getting to the darn thing to make an adjustment! 

Thsi videoclip  clarifies the way it’s found and taken care of for some of tye carbs we come across.

Furthermore which I found to really like was the replacement air/fuel screw that was put back in place from the original making adjustment a ton easier! No more fancy angle screwdrivers.    Let me know what you think.  It’s a quick video.

I think the company based on the video was cv performance. I looked on amazon they are listed. 

I’m always watching videos like this.  I like that adjustment screw.

Thank you Frank - that is on my carb! - why the hell do they put the darn thing in such a hard to get to place! - That EZ Just screw mod seems ideal but there is nobody in the UK doing them directly as far as I can see at the moment.

Glad to hear you found it. If you can’t get one of the long stem mixture screws where you are located then get creative and make up a small right angle screwdriver out of a small flat heat.   I have in the past purchased a small flat head screwdriver and heated it up and bent tye top (flat head part) 90deg about one inch down.    

The second way is to take a small Allen key and grind the bent tip down to a flat tip. It’s bent already and easy to do and use.

I’m sorry I never really know where everyone is from.   I just assume most members are closer. I did the same thing this week by showing a member from Australia an item on Amazon  and he said they don’t have Amazon there!!! 😬Just goes to show you how far Quadcrazy reaches out!!

Good luck and let us know how you do please!

That's a neat idea that CV Performance have come up with. Those mixture screws are a pain to adjust when mounted on the bike.

They really are.  I’ve made so many different types of screw drivers to get up in there. This adjustment screw makes life a lot easier.

Thanks for the info Frank....man that long stem mix screw is awesome! I think my biggest challenge is getting the correct size jetting for the pilot and main jets.  Especially in some of the aftermarket chinese carbs.

If you contact the manufacturer of that screw set up they have all the info on bikes and carbs you have.

      I've never done this before but after reading a few thread I decided to check my valves for the first time and to my surprise it was much easier than I thought.
      My bike is a 2005 Sp 500 HO.
      I first pulled the seat and the right side panel off, and that's it! It wasn't too bad to get at.
      Next I pulled the spark plug out and removed both the head cover ( 8-8mm bolts)
      [ATTACH]1021[/ATTACH]
      then the side cam cover (5-8mm bolts).
      [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH]
      Also remove the plug in the recoil cover (14mm bolt) to see the timming marks.
      [ATTACH]1022[/ATTACH]
      Next I turned the engine over with the pull cord untill it was at TDC of the compression stroke.
      The best was to tell that your at TDC of the compression stroke is to rotate the engine until the
      timing marks are parallel to rocker cover gasket surface.
      The cam sprocket locating pin will be facing upward directly in line with the crankshaft to camshaft center line.
      Now fine adjust by looking into the timing hole in the recoil cover and line up the upside down "T" on
      the flywheel into the center of the hole.
      [ATTACH]1023[/ATTACH]
      Now using a feeler gauge, slide the .006" (.15mm)blade between the top of the valve and the bottom of the adjuster and adjust accordingly
      [ATTACH]1024[/ATTACH]
      [ATTACH]1025[/ATTACH]
      To adjust, Loosen the locknut (10mm) and check clearance with a feeler guage. Clearance should be .006" (.15mm) for both, intake and exhaust valves. Turn the adjuster with a stubby flat blade screwdriver untill the proper clearance is achieved then tighten the locknut (5.8-7.2 ft. lbs) while holding the adjuster in place with the screwdriver. Re-check the clearance with the feeler guage one last time and re-assemble the covers (72 in.lbs) and plugs.
      The only thing that i noticed was that I had to clean and silicone the side cam cover other than that I found the whole process rather simple.
      I'd give it a 4 out of 10 on the skill level scale.
      I hope this helps!
      Thanks Rich

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips

      Take a look at this.  Curious about everyone’s input.it looks pretty good.   We all have this common problem of accessing the air fuel mixture screws.    
      The reviews look pretty good.  I may order one just to see how it works out.

      They also have other types that will work on this site.
