    95 sl 750 choke

    I rode my sl 750 yesterday for the first time since i had the carbs rebuilt and it acted like it wouldnt give me everything it had unless i had the choke about half way. If i pushed the choke in it would just kinda bog down, but if I pulled it out to this certain spot it would do great.
    Why could this be?

    Were the fuel lines replaced?

    Was the restrictor from the return line moved to the new line?

    Did you set the carb adjustment screws to the factory settings?

    Applying the choke and it helping means you're lean on fuel.

    Double check your carb adjustment screws. The manual is in the tech section.

    Read the section on carbs, and setting the adjustments.

    There are also links to carb rebuild guides in there.

    Adjusting the carb screws is fairly easy, once you learn where the screws are located, and how to adjust them.

    All carb screw adjustments are relative to the fully closed position - that is, the adjustment screws are turned in all the way.

    However, you must only turn them until you feel modest resistance, no further. The inner end of each carb screw is a precision taper, which can be marred if the screw is over tightened.

    From the 'closed' position, you count the turns out to match the specification in the manual. If it says 1 1/2, that means you turn the screw out 1 full turn, then another 1/2 turn, from the gently seated (closed) position.

    If you are checking what the current setting is, you count the turns in, until the screw just touches bottom inside. Count each 1/8 turns, so one full turn in plus a bit more might be noted 1 1/8 turns.

    It is quite easy to check settings once the Flame Arrestor is removed.

    You may have limiting caps on the adjustment screws. They just pull right off.

    High speed screw is mounted near the top of the carb.

    The low speed screw is located near the bottom of the carb, and is a "T" handle.

    Everything else K447 ^^^^^^^^ mentioned is spot on.
