Re: OT: Polaris ATV Idle mixture screw????
I decided that it was probably something else. I ended up adjusting the throttle cable on the handle bar and then reset the idle screw. It seems to be working. The mixture shouldn't be off from just sitting around. I use stabilizer in all my gas, and the fuel filters are pretty fresh. There is a slight miss/stutter at WOT, but I may need a new plug. If you have any suggestions about the idle, bring them on. Before I adjusted the cable, the engine missed badly and would stall at idle. I had to turn the idle screw in to the point where the engine was revving enough to move the ATV without touching the throttle. With the cable slightly adjusted I get decent idle and the ATV isn't moving on its own. I just have the high speed miss/stutter.
