Fuel screw--no affect
Posted November 25, 2005 - 04:48 PM
Well, I turned it all the way in from 2 turns out with the bike idling, and no effect except possible the idle increasing a bit. My purpose in doing the adjustment was just o make sure that I didn't have it adjusted wrong. I can't complain much about bog, etc. since doing the JD kit, free mods, etc.
Was I doing the adjustment right?

BTW, to tune the screw, raise the idle to 1900 rpm, turn the screw all the way in and then back it out in 1/4 turn increments, allowing about 15 seconds at each step, until you get the best idle.
Are there any other symptoms? Or is it running OK?

FYI--I got a big performance increase with the PMB insert into the stock muffler. The other free mods didn't have much of an effect that I could notice.
So, for the fuel screw, I want to get the idle to 1900 rpm; then, turn the screw out 1/4 turns until I "get the best idle"? Can you explain what best idle is? Do you mean an increase in idle or smoother idle? Thanks!

I'd be checking for air leaks. A small air leak can cause all sorts of problems for your jetting.

And nope, no backfiring or popping at all on deceleration or otherwise
