high idle banshee

on my 96 banshee i just put on carb tops that the owner before me took off. now it wont idle corectly, it will start right up without the choke but idle really high, i turn the idle screws in alittle and it will go down, i will start it back up and it will do it again or not idle. also the right cyl is blowing some whiteish smoke. i have to check the coolant to see if its low. i replace the plugs, but still blows, if i cover the pipe thats blowing smoke the engine dies, if i do that to the other one it still runs, whats up with that?

Re: high idle banshee

Which tops are you putting on? The stock TORS units, or the aftermarket standard Mikuni?

Synchronize the throttle slides left to right on the carb tops. Adjust idle at the twist throttle assembly(assumin thats what you are running).

White smoke is normal when 2 strokes are cold. When they warm up, it is usually a sign of a blown head gasket. Do a compression check.

Fix the problem before it gets more expensive.

Re: high idle banshee

my first recommendation is to ditch the TORS system....

Re: high idle banshee

I dont remember off the top of my head, but 5-7 turns sounds about right. Im looking in the Clymer manual and they dont list a setting for that.

Try synching the carbs peliminary, then adjust the cable at the throttle to increase or decrease. Once youve found the idle you like, synch the carbs again.

ALso make sure your cable is not binding against anything. For instance, i found yesterday that while turning the handlebars to the left, my throttle went up. Not good!!!!

Re: high idle banshee

AirBornBanshee,
Jeep8719 is my brother, he just replaced the TORS eliminator kit that was on the quad with the factory TORS system after the throttle pinned open on pavement during a wheelie and flipped on him, it wasn't a pretty site. Its worth more to run the TORS system instead of ending up in a tree if we had been in the woods. Just thought I'd let ya know why he's keeping the TORS system.

Re: high idle banshee

I understand that, I have hit a tree before and it hurts...I also have had the throttle stick on a TORS system...I dont believe that will stop that from happening...The TORS systems tends to cause more other misc problems then anything. But it is each to their own and I am not one to pass judgement...

PEACE
