KX500 jetting question.
Posted 30 June 2012 - 11:20 PM
Now to be honest I have never really worked with rejetting a carb. So I am green when it comes to this.
It runs not bad, but does seem to load the spark plug up and then can't get into it's top end until the plug gets clean. It is running really rich. So my question is what jet do I play with. The main jet or the pilot, or both? Also how many turns out of the air/fuel screw do I have to turn? I started at 2 and went to 2.5
I am around 3000ft elevation as well. Hey thanks so much in advance! This place is a major blessing!

Put the clip and air screw where she runs best. These settings will get you very close depending on your altitude. Google "Team Green" jetting chart or go to KXRiders.com. A lot of good 500 info over there.
