adjusting idle on a tomos with an encarwi

Before any of you tell me to go and buy a dellorto... yes I know, thanks.

other than adjusting how far the slide sits within the carb with an adjustable throttle cable.... how the hell do you get this thing to idle properly?

Are there any changes or modifications that can be made to the carb itself to adjust the idle?

If it won't idle despite being adjusted at the cable properly, either a passage is clogged, or it's very likely that the float height is not set right, making it too rich at idle.

Float height effect a/f on the Encarwi carbs, as i recall

Those carbs heavily restrict the bike and are almost way too simple to function reliably.

I went through the struggle of dealing with these on several bikes, the bikes i’ve kept all ended up with dellorto SHA carbs. Just my two cents, good luck

(ps if you get a side mounted intake for the dellorto you never have to drop the engine to get to the carb again yippee)

Not sure why but I dont remember seeing this piece when I took apart the carb to clean it.

I will have to double check but thank you for the heads up

Yeah I need to look into the side mounted carb (Although I managed to install the carb with the engine on just fine, didnt take particularly long). My goal at the moment is to get the bike running as well as I can with just stock stuff, then to start replacing things.

I wont know how well improvements work if I don't have a good base line to start with.

This is the most logical and respectable answer to this problem.

Good on you for not jumping to mods the minute things are difficult.

Although I will be honest, I did just buy a new tecno boss exhaust from treatland because when I took the stock one apart to clean it the baffle literally just disintegrated into a pile of grease and dirt. Not much I can do to fix that.
