CV carb Air/Mixture adjustment question
I decided to adjust the air/gas screw on my 98 Sportster 1200. The screw turned 4 1/4 turns clockwise before seating. I read online that if it turns more than 3 out, the pilot jet is too small. (Im new with these CV carbs please forgive ignorance....lol) So if the pilot jet is too small, is this an adjustment that has to be made or does that mean I have to get a larger number pilot jet? I took the Carb apart and cleaned it when I first purchased the bike and I thought the jets were stock, so how could stock pilot jet be too small?
The air gas screw turned 4 1/4 turns clockwise before stopping, so I turned it 4 1/2 turns back. The bike runs pretty good, idols fine once warmed up and throttle response seems to be good, choke works fine. It does not back fire too much, maybe very slightly when coming to stop after riding for a while (but its minor). The only indication of running rich is the strong smell of gas when running.
Should I not worry about this or do I need to do something with pilot jet?
