I set my mixture screws by the idle drop or hang method and don't care too much what happens to the idle while turning the screws.

I make a adjustment and blip the throttle. And see what the idle does. Hang, dip low, or settle to a steady idle right away........

And its a small blip.

No, please don't do that. If your thread isn't getting any replies, bump it up: post to it to bring it back to the top of the active threads list.

With the number of posts on here, it doesn't take long for a thread to disappear off the first page. It's no use leaving a thread alone for a week, and then complaining that you have no replies!

BTW, there is a lot of info on carb tuning here, in the Carb Tuning And Jetting Sticky Index.

I want a more broad area of input maybe something that worked for someone else not necessarily on an ironhead
