How do you adjust air fuel mixture?
Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to sound rough.
- Tightening the screw weakens the air and fuel mixture and decreases the amount of fuel flowing to the engine.
- Tightening the screw is also called making the fuel mixture leaner, which lowers the RPMs at which the engine idles.
How do you know if your ATV is running lean or rich?
A black dry fluffy colored plug is caused by deposits from a carburetor that is running too rich (too much gas), or excessive idling on some engines. Black smoke coming from the exhaust is a sign of a rich air/fuel mixture.
Why is my four wheeler sputtering?
There are many reasons why an ATV sputters. The most common reason has to do with a carburetor problem like a tuning issue, vacuum leak, or gas leak. Other sputtering issues can be caused by an ignition issue. For the combustion chamber to work on an ATV, it needs air, gas, and a spark.
How do you adjust a running rich carburetor?
Regardless of whether or not the engine is running too rich or too lean, bring it down to a very lean mixture by turning both screws a quarter-turn at a time, counter-clockwise, then slowly bringing them back up to an equal and smooth mixture.
How do I fix my ATV running rich?
Running rich is usually not an issue. Move the needle to the top and put it back. Alternatively, you can warm up your ATV and drive with the choke on. However, if there is too much fuel (and consequently too little air) being supplied, then it is likely that the excess fuel will leak outside of the chamber.
How do you adjust a idle screw?
Adjust idle mixture by turning idle mixture screw slowly clockwise until the engine runs poorly. Note position. Slowly turn the screw counter-clockwise until it starts to stumble.
How do I know if my carburetor is clogged?

How do you adjust a 4 stroke air screw?
With engine off, lightly seat the fuel screw and set to factory settings as a baseline (usually around 2 turns out). With engine running at low RPM, turn the screw in clockwise until the engine begins to stumble, then turn the screw counterclockwise until the engine stumbles, noting how many turns in/out both occurred.
