Idle adjustment

G'day folks,

just a quick question...I purchased another Zuki a little while ago (it's an 88.5 and my old one was an 87) Anyhow I need to adjust the electrical idle up (the one when you turn on any electrical component the idle increases) and I can't find the adjustment screw...or is it a screw???
Your help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Re: Idle adjustment

Look at the carb from the Passengers side. See where the throttle cable goes to the carb. There is a metal bracket that holds the cable secure. The screw is just below and to the right (forward fo the bracket) of the bracket. You will not see it from the side very well, but if viewed from behind, you will see the screw just below the bracket. I think this is what you want. I know it is the idle screw.

Re: Idle adjustment

One other thing. Sometimes it takes awhile for someone to help. This is becasue not everyone checks the board through out the day. It is a good idea to post stuff early. I know that is not alway possible. So make it clear that you need help now and people who may know what you need to know might make time to help. Or people like me will try to help. Just a heads up.

So what did you do with your rust bucket?

Re: Idle adjustment

The idle up control is vacume operated.. I do not know where the control is or how to adjust it. There is a vacumme unit with a 1/4" or so rod going down to the throtle cam on the carb. When the a/c is on or lights, blower, this that it somehow upps the idle up 100~400rpm.. Mine used to work, I would also like to know how this is adjusted. The idle screw is very easy to adjust.. It is kinna hidden though.

I'm LOCKED!

Re: Idle adjustment

there is no screw, you turn the plunger that pops out and pushes the throttle, it should be hex shaped to fit a wrench

Re: Idle adjustment

On the zook, I thought it was a puller?! I do have a/c so it may be an aditional part... Is the hex adjustment on the plunger part or on the tip of the nylon bushing thing that presses on the throttle cam...

Re: Idle adjustment

actually I just went out and looked, the plunger pushes on a hex bolt on the throttle cam, you turn that bolt

Re: Idle adjustment

it has a hex head, you could turn on the head lights and watch the plunger move, (out) increase the rpms to about 1000 I think, it's on the inside of the carb between the valve cover and base of the carb, I think it's electrical activated.

Re: Idle adjustment

Thanks for the help guys...after a little digging last night I traced the vacuum lines and found the plunger, however I can't seem to get a wrench in there to adjust it!
Oh well, it's disconnected for the time being.
