on cool morning ( about 5deg celcius) it is very hard to start it. I talked with a friend and conclusion (maybe): because it is running rich ( it is ), and with the full choke it get flooded. (which could make sense because it realy smell gaz when that happen. and I also discover that it start better with 1/2 choke when not cool morning)
So I would like to adjusting the mixture screw.
the service manual says it should be 2 turn out (+ or - 1/4).
on my bike It is adjust to 2 1/4. So I thought I should screw it (clockwise) to get closer to 2 turn(to get my mixture less rich). but my friend told me that the screw actualy controle air, so I have to unscrew it to get more air through, and then get a less rich mixture.
but it would put me out of the manual spec!?!.
Could you confirm which way I have to turn the mixer jet ???
and if I have the go out of the spec... is it a problem? should I be worried?? any advice.
thank you for your time.
