  • Rotating knob, right side, above carb. what does it do?

    I picked up this bike used, a 2004 Road Star Classic and it has a knob on an extension and it goes down to the carb. I have to assume its for "tuning on the fly" but I haven't ever had one and wondered what it does? I will be glad to shoot a photo if that will help...?

    Idle control knob likely.

      Probably the idle speed adjustment.

        There was an adjustment that some people added to the carb. If it's small and rubber probably that, if it's plastic and 1/2" and there is not a plastic and 1/2" at the bottom of the push rod tubes then it's probably the idle adjustment.

          Mike is talking about an aftermarket extended PMS screw coming out of the carb itself. The idle adjustment is on a cable and is lower under the stock air filter housing.

          That was it! The PMS adjustment. Ya, the idle adjustment could have been moved, or maybe the choke. I moved my choke next to my idle adjustment on one of my bikes when I re-located the fuel pump.
