Any one know how many turns out on the idle srcew on a 94 fatboy? The screw is in the bowl so its going to be a pita to get it just right if I dont have a good starting point. The screw was plugged but I had to unplug it to try to save this carb. Its a Keihin CV. Think its 40mm

Thanks

Turn it in until it lightly seats, then back it out 1 1/2 turns. This is about where they come from the factory, and is a good place to start tuning from. The more you back it out, the richer the idle mixture will be. Usually it seems they idle best around 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 turns, but you'll have to tune it once you get the bike running and the engine warmed up.
