Fuel Screw Problem
Posted 07 March 2012 - 01:49 PM
The diagram of the pilot circuit in the Honda manual seems to indicate that there is a passage through from the fuel screw adjuster to the venturi of the carburetor, and I have jammed the broken part up in it when I made the field adjustment.
Thanks for the help.

When you get it out. Buy a BRASS T-handle screw. The Aluminum ones are crap and have been known to have this type of failure. Good luck.

Here are some don'ts I learned:
Don't use an aluminum fuel screw, at least in a 250X.
Don't use pliers to tighten in the screw.
Don't overtighten the fuel screw.

Check the parts section on this board. The TT store carries several of them.

I looked at one of those yesterday. I changed my pilot jet to a 42 and it seemed to help alot. I warmed up my bike yesterday and went for a short ride, but it still seems to have "hanging idle". If I rev it, it idles high for about 5 to 10 or 15 seconds then settles in to a normal idle. Will the flex-jet fix that or should I go to a 45 pilot?

You might just need to richen the fuel screw by turning it out. The R&D flex jet just makes it easier to adjust as it allows easy access. Start by turning the fuel screw in all the way until it seats, counting the number of turns. Then back out the fuel screw, counting the number of turns. If you go beyond 2 1/2 turns out I would certainly replace the slow speed jet with a 45. That hanging idle certainly indicates lean mixture at the pilot!
