  • carburetor.

    I'm hoping someone can clarify for me something I read in Mr.Tidy's post about re-jetting a Roadstar carb.In his post he says to turn air-fuel screw in to lightly seat and then turn three and one half turns open.I recently bought a Barons jet kit and the instructions say to turn the screw out two and one half turns.am I missing something or are they both right?

    Both are right, it's close either way.
    After turning the PMS screw out and the bike warmed up idling, use a tachometer, or listening very closely while turning the PMS screw in or out to find the highest idle. After you find the highest idle, turn the PMS screw out 1/8 to 1/4 turns. Your done.
    If you have to turn the PMS screw out more than 3 1/2 turns, then change the pilot jet to richer pilot.

        You might want to drop the needle one clip and see if that leans it out a bit.
