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.
What is the valve clearance on a 50cc scooter?
For most 150cc GY6 engines the clearance should be around. 004″, but check your manual. For 50cc engines I’ve seen. 002″ recommended.
How do you adjust a 50cc carburetor?
With the engine idling, turn the idle mixture screw clockwise in ¼ turn increments until the engine drops in speed. Count how many turns this takes. Turn the screw counter clockwise in ¼ turn increments until the engine revs back up and drops again. Count how many turns this takes.
When should I adjust valve clearance?
If your engine generates a loud clatter, it could be time for a valve clearance adjustment, though a tapping noise could also be caused by a loose rocker arm or some other component; the mechanic won’t know for sure without inspecting the valves.
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.
How do I know if my carburetor is too rich or lean?
Typical symptoms of a rich mixture are:
- Poor fuel economy.
- Sluggish acceleration.
- Choke not needed from cold starts.
- Sooty or black spark plugs.
- Sooty or black muffler end pipes.
- Strong smell of gasoline when the machine is at idle.
- Uneven running (will often slow from regular idle rpms and then stop)
How do you take the governor off a 50cc scooter?

Can you put a bigger carb on a 50cc?
Fitting bigger carb wont make it any more powerful; With the throttle wide open, engine will suck 50cc of ‘charge’ per revolution having a bigger door that could flow more charge, in fact enough to fill a cylinder twice as big
What happens if valves are to tight?
Driving Your Car With Valves Too Tight The other potential problem is for your valves to close too slowly, which reduces the compression in the cylinder. Driving with the valves too tight causes more damage. In severe cases, your engine may overheat and burn out a valve, which is a much more costly repair.
Will tight valves cause backfire?
Check the valve, yes alot of back firing on decel can be caused by the exhaust valve clearance getting to tight and when the valve won’t close all the way, you get some nasty back firing.
Do valves get tighter or looser?
Valves almost always get tighter.
