Pilot screw regulation

Postby gwlegg » Thu Aug 02, 2012 11:54 am



Hello friends. again sorry for my bad English. I have a question for the experts in carbs of the Forum since there are many. My question is related to the adjustment screw that I discuss below.



I have a goldwing of the ´77 with the ´79 engine. In the other engine this screw was unscrewing 1 3/8 back from the bottom but in this engine the four carbs are varied unscrewing from 1 3/4 up 2 3/4 turn from the bottom and it is possible that this spending more fuel than usual. Apparently the bike runs well at all times of revolutions but I think a rare issue. The carbs have been cleaned recently assembled the engine and changed seals and when I found this. The shot of four carburetors is well regulated with vacuum. Do you can tell me the owners of a ´79 engine turns nscrewed or how to make a correct adjustment of this screw?

The initial setting is 2 turns out from bottem according to the service manual.
Section 9 has more discription of how to fine tune this.
