loading up on idle
i have a carbed 1200r that pisses me off because it loads up when I dont touch the throttle for about 4 minutes (i just let it idle)...
the low needle screws were at 1.5 turns so i put them at 1 turn and it still did the same thing but not as bad... (after idling for a while i would hit it and it would clear up a little faster)
so then i put the screws at 0 turns and it still does it but it probably takes about 5 minutes to load up...
how does it idle if i have the low screws closed all the way?

theyre bored but the butterfly is still the same size. i really cant tell you what mm they are bored to - i bought the ski like that..
the low jet is a little bit to big because when i cruise at 1/4 throttle it gets a litttle rich. thats another problem though because its hard to tell what 1/4 throttle is.
at "1/4" throttle i might be going ~30mph and it wont load up. but a hair more acceleration and it will jump to 50mph and not load up. however if i do a hair less acceleratoin it will drop to about 18mph and then load up...
its kinda hard to see EXACTLY where 1/4 is at

im just wondering where the heck is the motor getting gas from if i have all the screws closed! and it still gets enough gas to eventually load up..

the circuit doesn't work that way it doesn't shut completely down! if u stuck a plug in the jet it would
look at page 6 in the manual Oside gave u you can see the circuit
