Default Re: Engine stalling

To tighten the choke, remove the air filter. Using a socket wrench is easiest, but an adjustable wrench will do the trick if you don't have a socket wrench. To adjust the idle screw, use a flathead screwdriver. Turn the idle screw in until it stops. Do not force it, only tighten it as far as it will go on its own. Then, begin turning it out a quarter turn at a time, until it is out 4 and a half turns. If it doesn't idle quite properly, you can adjust it with your fingers. Turning it in will increase the idle and turning it out will lower it. Adjust it to 4 1/2 turns and test ride it before adjusting it by hand.
