Float bowl screws are not junk!


dobent4

The float bowl screws that have caused so many of us gnashing of the teeth are in fact not junk. The problem is we aren't using the right screwdriver! :busted:

What to use is a J.I.S.(Japanese Industrial Standard) no.#1 phillips, which is a lot different than one of our number 1's. It doesn't matter if it's a Snap On, etc., if it's not a J.I.S. no.#1 it's the wrong screwdriver. :prof:

They are available at lots of places, I found mine at a hobby shop that had them listed in their catalogs and had several J.I.S. sizes,including the no.#1.

      Jetting 101. Jetting can be tricky to get down and understand 100%. Here is a video I have used in the past, he does a great job of showing how all the circuits overlap, etc. please feel free to add your thoughts and experience. This will help newer riders understand jetting a little better.

      It seems like the most common jetting issue that comes up are pilot circuit related.  The following is a sure method to choose the needed changes.
      With the bike warm and idling, turn the fuel screw in till the idle drops/misses.then go back out till the idle peaks/smooths. This should happen between 1 and 2.5 turns on a fcr carb and 1 and 3 turns on a CV.
      If you end up at less than 1 turn, you need a bigger pilot jet. More than 2.5 (or 3 turns on a CV), you need a smaller pilot jet.
      Choose the appropriate size and retest.
