How should I adjust the jets on the HP Carburetor (Walbro WA-167)?
Due to the increased power and hence increased vibration that results from installing the
larger carburetor, you will most likely need to adjust the jets much more often than the
jet for the stock carb. If you find your top-end RPM's have fallen off a bit, or if you
experience lagging or surging, it is probably time to re-adjust the carb jets. To ensure
max performance and engine life, follow this procedure:
1) Locate the low and high RPM jets on the side of the carb - they are usually marked
with a L and a H. Turn both jets completely CLOCKWISE ( to the fully closed position).
2) Rotate the Low jet counter-clockwise to 1 and 1/2 turns open.
3) Rotate the High jet counter-clockwise to approx 1 turn open.
Note for the G230RC / HE23HP carburetor (Walbro WT-603, or WT-668): set thelow jet and high jet at 1 1/4 turns out.
4) Now, start the engine. You may need to turn the Low jet slightly one way or the other
for the engine to start.
5) Adjust the Low jet as desired until the idle is where you like it. Turning clockwise
("CLOSING" THE JET) will produce a higher idle, and counterclockwise ("OPENING" THE JET) will produce a lower idle (and eventually flood and the engine will kill, if you turn it too far).
6) Lift the rear tire off the ground and pull the throttle lever to full blast. Adjust the High
jet until you get maximum RPMs. Note: this will probably be REALLY LOUD. Listen for the highest-pitched whine to tell you where max RPMs are hit. AFTER YOU FIND THE MAX RPM SETTING, TURN THE HIGH JET COUNTER-CLOCKWISE ("OPEN" THE JET) APPROX 1/16TH OF A TURN TO ENSURE YOU HAVE SUFFICIENT GAS/OIL MIX TO COOL THE ENGINE PROPERLY.
Note: The above are just general guidelines. You may need to adjust both the H
and L screws once you begin riding, depending on rider weight, altitude,
humidity, etc. The trick is to find settings that work well for you, and stick with
Here is some helpful information regarding common carburetor tuning
If your engine stutters at full throttle and cannot reach full RPMs:
The high jet is too far open. Close the jet by turning it clockwise slightly, and then ridetest.
If no improvement, repeat until desired results are achieved. Once you have found
a workable setting, open the jet approx 1/16 of a turn to ensure sufficient fuel/air mix.
If your engine bogs out from low speed:
The high jet is too far closed. Open the jet by turning it counterclockwise until you are at
least 1 1/2 turns open, and then gradually close the jet until performance is as desired.
Poor engine compression, blocked exhausts, and very heavy engine loading can all also
If your engine idles very fast and kills if you attempt to slow the idle:
You may have an air leak in your intake. An easy way to check for leaks is to spray the
intake manifold and area surrounding it with WD-40. If the idle changes after you spray
the WD-40, there is an air leak. Common areas for leaks are between the manifold and
the cylinder, and between the carb and the intake manifold. Inspect the manifold, carb
gasket, and intake gasket for cracks or other signs of damage, and replace if necessary.
If your engine idles but then slowly kills:
Your low jet is too far open. Close the low jet by turning it clockwise until a stable idle is
