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.

extremely helpful!!  Where do I get these online?  Amazon?  How do I know which kind to get for a specific bike?

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.

      Hey just picked up another scrambler 850 was told the tps was bad.  This atv has been beet to hell.  Wiring has been tinkered with the crankcase has been replaced recently and the motor rebuilt (can see horizontal scores thru spark plug hole where it’s just been honed out and rebuilt)
      my guess is it was ragged out till the motor blew a rod and rebuilt but the clown that did it couldn’t get it to run again and sold it.  When I bought it it would pulse and smoke black at idle and die with throttle.
      New tps installed and it won’t run period.  I went to celebrate it and I’m getting 5 volts on 2 of the 3 wires running to the tps.  Is this normal and if so how should I celebrate it?
