What's this knob do?
Hay, I've been reading on here about how you turn the air screws to adjust the mixture on the carbs. Most of what I have read says that their should be a " cap" like thing u have to drill off to get at them. On my bike I have a knob on the left side of the carb assembly that the dealer I bought the bike off of said I shouldn't mess with as it supposedly adjusted something on the carb. Being new to moorcycles I took his word for it at the time and haven't touched it.
I was just wondering if this knob was attached to the air mixture screws or if it went to something else on the carb. I sometimes have a hard time starting the girl up when she's cold, but takes off on the first crank when warmed up. I was thinking of trying to adjust her a little to try and get a little more cooperation out of her.
I've included a pic. What's the verdict on the knob. Tinker with it or leave it alone?
Keep her rubber side down.
