Please help me with the carburator settings on my 1995 XCR 600.
We have purchased a manual and the carb. settings do not work.
The machine will not run at all now.
Snows coming (minnesota) and I am stressed out to get it going.
Gas is good. It will run but not for very long.
It ran before I messed with the carb. (if it works, don't fix it)
Do you know a website where I can access carb settings, or do you have a suggestion.
(the ground is just about covered)
start by adjusting the floats, to the measure the manual says.
then seat the air screw, turn it in all the way (LIGHTLY SEAT), then turn it out 1 and1/2 turns out.
Idle screw, look down the bore and turn the screw till the throttle body just lifts off the base about a 32nd.
try that and see what happens.
Did you adjust the floats as the book said?
while its idling can you pump the throttle quickly and have the motor rev up the RPM's while your doing that?
Too much air and not enough gas or just not getting the gas for the demand.
try turning the air screws in a 1/4 turn while running, see what happens.
is there any cracks or dry rot in the rubber of the carb mounts to the engine?
Check your lines going into the tank, as well as the pickup in the tank.
do you have an inline fuel filter, old, new?
old, try blowing through it as the arrow points.
Hows the gas line going from the diaghram to the crank, check it replace it if you can. gas lines cheap, its the simple things that will get ya somtimes.
when was last time the diaghram was changed or rebuilt?
rubbers might have gone bad.
