How do you adjust a carburetor on a bike?
Carb Quick Guide
- Verify carburetor is set to stock settings:
- Start bike, bring to operating temperature.
- Set idle speed adjusting screw, clockwise to increase rpm, counter-clockwise to decrease rpm.
- Adjust idle mixture by turning idle mixture screw slowly clockwise until the engine runs poorly.
Is clockwise lean or rich?
If the mixture screw is turned clockwise is the fuel lean or rich? When the adjuster is turned clockwise, then it reduces the flow of fuel and makes the engine run lean. If you remember tightening the screw stops fuel flow, loosening the screw increases it. Too much fuel with mixture screw all the way in.

Why is my dirt bike idling high?
A motorcycle idles high when it is getting too much of an air and fuel mixture in a low speed or neutral position. This is usually caused by the idle screw on the carburetor being out of adjustment, an out of place throttle handle screw, a bad carburetor throttle spring, or a sticky throttle or throttle cable.
What causes a 2 stroke engine to smoke?
There are a few reasons a 2 stroke can smoke more than normal: The fuel mixture is too rich. The oil/fuel mixture is too heavy on oil. The power valve (if you have one) is dirty.
What does air screw do on 2 stroke?
The air screw is the “fine-tune” adjustment for the pilot jet (sometimes called the slow jet). The screw adjusts how much air is allowed through the pilot jet. This is important for jetting to get the proper air-fuel mixture.
