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.
What does a carburetor do on a scooter?
The carburetor is a device that mixes air and fuel for an engine. The carburetor works on Bernoulli’s Principle: the fact that moving air has lower pressure than still air, and that the faster the movement of the air, the lower the pressure. The throttle does not control the flow of liquid fuel.
Where is the air fuel mixture screw?
The idle mixture screw controls the air fuel mixture at idle speed, and often is located near the throttle plate.
