Never asked before carb Q: adjusting the throtttle stop screw
Posted April 10, 2002 - 03:37 PM
Should the slide be completely shut with zero gap (when viewed from cylinder sde), or open 2 or 3 mm (how it is now). Help.

As long as the bike idles at a low RPM, doesn't stumble on the way up, or hang on the way down, you should be all set.
Weather conditions and your fuel screw will have an active part in your idle speed settings/performance.

ballistic, just use it to adjust the idle RPMs. Many people like the idle set somewhat high to help starting and reduce stalling. Personal preference. Set it like you like it.
There is a throttle slide cutout mentioned in the book but it isn't obvious to me where it is. If it exists you could conceivably completely close the throttle but without it a closed throttle would kill the bike. There is no interplay between the idle adjustment and the accelerator pump. (unless you set it so high you didn't have to twist the throttle, damn boundary conditions).
