there is a little metal tab on the needle hook up. if you tip the carb upside down and measure from the outer flange of the carb to the top of the float, should be 1/2" give or take. i had trouble with mine too, ripped it apart 8 times or more before i got it right ,,,

Hey... I might break your record of ripping it apart when its all said and done :biggrin:

here is an update... I am getting closer, it just barely leaks now out of the drain line.. so closer i reckon... It was not idleing at all.. till I messed with the needle.. now it takes off like its full throttle what would cause that to happen? Maybe the thottle cable needs to be adjusted?...

I was reading in the diagram for these atvs... I am thinking its called the pilot jet as far as i can tell by the diagram looks more like it anyways then the other things in the diagram, I am not familiar with the names of these parts though.... but anyways if it is the pilot jet it has a small spring on it and a small washer and a small 0-ring rubber... and it screws into the bottom beside the bowl it is not in the bowl though just beside it.. takes a straight small screw driver to turn it... Anyways from what i was reading in the parts manual.. it says to be sure you count how far it was turned out before you remove it.... well I did not know that till now...lol..... I am not a atv mechanic ... do you have any ideal about this.. as far as how far it turns out when tight?

Pilot jet controls your idle to 1/4 throttle sound like your talkin about A/F screw ( air fuel mixture ) Turn it all the way in and back out 2 1/2 turns or so and see if that makes any difference !

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
