So... it's adjusting the amount of fuel too them.... OK then.... :cool:

To be a mixture screw it has to be mixing at the very least 2 different components. It an air adjustment screw.... PERIOD.

A question or two, please?

How do i adjust the throttle mixture tube on my bike?

You know...the one on the right side of the hannelbar...????

Oh...and what do you torque the intake mixture clamp to? You know...the one around the carb boot on the airbox?

Thanks in advance!

#1 I just turn the throttle mixture tube until it stops then use a pipe wrench to give it a additional 1/4 of a turn........ then glue in place with construction adhesive. You can use a degree wheel but I just prefer to eye-ball it.


#2 I use a 1” Heavy Duty Torque Wrench from Ingersoll-Rand, it's the only torque wrench I've found that'll properly tighten that clamp to 1,600 ft lbs.

Thanks!

I do have a degree wheel, actually..and even know how to use it! How's that for a surprise. I might try boltin' it up just for fun.

Oh...will an I/R pnuematic wrench work? I can get only about 50SCFM out @ 90psi though. I'm quite sure that won't get me the spec you noted.

Great! Time for a new tool!!! :hmm: Do they make a 1" drive #2 phillips socket?

I am going to start adding "mixture" to every thing having to do with air or fuel from now on. I am running a 150 main mixture jet and a 42 pilot mixture jet. :roll:

Does acetone work to undo that construction adhesive?




Maybe I'd better wait for a pic of #2 (gtoron need not respond) seeing as I'm apparently unable to grok your written instructions.



...your posts are kind'a an engraved invitation to......... :wink:

And it's dampENer, not damper. Damper is wetter. As in, "It's damper today than it was yesterday. DampENer is the correct term. As in, "I need to dampen the spring action with a dampener." Now DEAL WITH IT!!!

Re: ' idle screw is black nylon'

Yup! Tuesday here and everywhere has wi-fi. I have a little HP Mini 110 I haul with me and can figure out what it is I'm looking at and where I'm going to.

I've learned one thing here; don't ask people where to find someplace. They will literally pick up your bags, and take you there. They do not expect, nay are even insulted, if you offer to pay them for the aid. A very friendly and laid-back culture here compared to USA.

Coffee is much superior than that in the US too. All things bread are marvelous!! Every place takes my credit card so there will only be one exchange fee when I pay my bill next month and the rate is the best too.

On the list tomorrow;
Soccer match
Symphony
Cricket
