Adjusting idle air misture

Postby rogerf » Wed Jul 13, 2011 7:35 pm



I have searched and cannot find help. I noticed two "flag" screws on each carb, are these load or/and air misture? IF so, how would one adjust with engine at operating temps? I am wanting to sync my carbs but it runs too rough at idle to perform that task. Runs fine out on the open road. I guess I am older than my age, because I have put in several search terms and never come up with anything. Thanks


Thanking you in advance! Roger

It's been a while,My brain can't seem to picture 2 flagged adjustments.
The "flag" is the idle mixture limiter(bottom of carb).Usually set at the factory.The flag can be removed for customer adjustments.
Sync the carbs FIRST before the idle mix.
Idle mixture adjustments are posted here for you cause you asked.

****...It says the jpeg is a invalid file type.I'll try to PM it.

That's odd...it should without question allow jpg files. Perhaps because it's jpeg extension rather than jpg?

I looked at the file extension that "paint"put on it and it was in fact a "jpeg".I did a 'file save as' and added the " .jpg " on the end of the name.Funny cause it never did that before.Don't ya love windows?
