i just rebuilt my carb on my 426 because it was so dam hard to start i found that one of the jets was clogged so i cleaned it out and found that the bike starts up no problem now. i issue that im having is i let the bike warm up on idle, and when i give it some gas it revs up and dose not want to come back down. i can shut the bike off and restart it and it will idle fine till i give it some gas then it just stays up there. i need some help and suggestions would help.. thanks...

Be sure the hot start closes all the way. Then set up the pilot screw according to this procedure:

If the idle still hangs, read this:

Still hanging? Check your valve clearance.

Yes the fuel screw is on the bottom of the carb. In for leaner, out for richer

"seems like the most common jetting issue that comes up are pilot circuit related.the following is a sure method to choose the needed changes.

with the bike warm and idleing turn the fuel screw in till the idle drops/misses.then go back out till the idle peaks/smooths.

this should happen between 1 and 2.5 turns on a fcr carb and 1 and 3 turns on a cv.

if you end up at less than 1 turn you need a smaller pilot jet.more than 2.5 (or 3 turns on a cv) you need a bigger pilot jet.

choose the appropriate size and retest."

Did you install the Needle Valve in the correct orientation? It's that plate thingy on the front of the slide. The hole goes on the bottom. See part #11 http://www.apachemot...=2001&fveh=1038
I installed that upside down once on my YZ426F and that caused a hanging idle.
