1990 suzuki ltf250 quadrunner poor idle

Recommended Posts

The quad starts good and runs good if the choke is on just a little. I installed a carb kit and backed the screw out 13/4 turns to where it was . Any ideas?

Thanks

Once you install a carb kit (rebuild) things change within the performance of the carburetor.  Going back to the original setting means noting other then getting a starting point for adjusting.  

Do this and see if it helps:

Start the bike up and let it warm up. Take the choke off and let the bike idle.  

Start to turn the fuel air mixture screw in either direction (My guess would be out). Your looking for the engine to start to rev higher. That’s a good thing! Keep going and as the engine reaches it’s sweet spot you will know because it will start to decrease revving  if you go to far. So once the engine stops revving higher and starts to break up a little stop! Turn the screw back maybe 1/4 turn. Then you can lower the IDLE screw and get the engine to level off to a healthy idle.  

See how the bike runs after that. My guess would be somewhere around the 2 to 2-1/4 turns out would be where it needs to be.

      Hi All,
      Hoping someone will be able to help.
      I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 
      I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...
      Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.

      Haven't got a service manual for this yet so I'm flying by the seat of my pants I made myself a shifter extension to go up by the gas tank took my foot shifter off to weld it and now when I put it back on I don't seem to be able to find neutral. Is there some asinine reason that you have to do something internally when you change or remove the foot shifter? It was a simple take off weld put back on and dog bite my pecker it's not working. I hope this is something simple I've done and that's something I need brain surgery for. Cheers fellas I know y'all will have the right answers
