Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that the "AIR FUEL" mixture screw adjustment "ONLY" manages your idle and has no effect on any other circuit also any intake leaks must be repaired before the A/F adjustment procedure can be performed otherwise you will never obtain a proper idle and you will waste a lot of time chasing the impossible. The A/F mixture screw's purpose is to fine tune the fuel charge entering the combustion chamber. The following applies to both 2 and 4 stroke engines:
1. The mixture screw may be sealed at the factory with a Welch Plug please review the following video for removal.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAXcksgvDkM
2. The mixture screw manages a range of 3 complete 360-degree counterclockwise turns from the bottom/closed position.
3. The mixture screw should have a spring and o-ring for tension and sealing integrity.
4. Turn the mixture screw clockwise until it gently bottoms out, this makes the fuel charge very lean and the engine should not idle if it does then the pilot/idle jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller.
5. Turn the mixture screw 1 and 1/2 turns counterclockwise to establish a baseline for starting the engine.
6. To fine-tune the idle circuit, adjust the mixture screw 1/4 turn in or out to achieve maximum idle RPM, wait 15 seconds between each adjustment for the idle to settle.
7. Never go past 3 full turns out this will make the fuel charge rich, foul plugs, and produce black smoke out of the exhaust, if the engine RPM keeps increasing past 3 turns the pilot/idle jet is too small and needs to be replaced with the next size larger.
8. After achieving maximum idle back out the mixture screw another 1/8 of a turn then adjust the throttle cable idle stop screw to 950-1050 RPM.
9. This procedure works great on 99% of all engines, for the 1% that demand a more robust throttle response on aftermarket monster fuel delivery systems additional tweaking outside the box may be necessary.

Floater height i have adjusted to 2/3 level of all carb reservoirs individually and to date it has been performing to the best. 23km/ltr dual carb GS450E.

1981 Suzuki Gs... | Answered on Jul 30, 2014 | 405 views


floats will go to top, as the name says. should cut off fuel just below top., but that would not give a problem if cutting off early, fuel would still be available to engine. So what is your problem?

1981 Suzuki Gs... | Answered on Jul 30, 2014 | 46 views


2" ID in a uni or k&n should fit the back of your carbs

It could be jetted too rich,the choke could be engaging at WOT,or,you could most likely have weak valve springs which are "floating" the valves at higher RPM's.Also,you might try lowering the needles in the carbs by a couple clicks.
Good Luck!

in the front of the engine..lower side, well bottom side, between the exhaust headers

not sure on the exact specs but flip the carb upside down and look how the floats look to the horizon of the earth. Sounds silly but that is how pretty much all bike mechanics set them, just make them level to the earth. Good luck

release the chain with the cam tensor located underneath the carbs then line up the notches on the wheel and have lots of patience.

Usually you adjust the shocks for the condition you are in and however you feel like riding, the bike is meant to be a cruiser, just adjust it probably on number 2 to start with and drive around for a little and keep tweakin with it until you are comfortable with it. If you arent sure where the adjuster is if you are sitting on the bike it is on your left sticking out in a cylinder shape.
