I've got a low-mileage Kodiak - it's been mine since new and while I maintain it reasonably well, I've done zero work on it from an adjustment standpoint. It generally runs fine, but increasingly I find that it stalls out at idle (only). I've countered this by cracking the choke a tiny bit, but I know that's a band-aid fix. My best guess is that I need to do a mixture adjustment of some sort. Is there one for idle only? Alternatively, I could probably fix it by upping the idle just a bit, but I don't think that's the right way. I'm mechanically inclined and work on all my own cars, but new to bikes. i.e. I'll learn fast, but may not have a clue on some of the bike-specific stuff. In fact, all of my cars are fuel-injected, so aside from a snow blower engine, I haven't worked on a carb'd vehicle since forever. Feel free to link me somewhere if this is already covered somewhere pretty well. Thanks...
