Setting Float Height - Mikuni Carburetor - Yamaha Fj600
This video supplements the the instructions called "setting the fuel
levels" which can be found at xj4ever.com. It shows some of the details
needed to set the float levels on a set of Mikuni BS-32 Carburetors from a
1985 Yamaha FJ600. This is a common procedure and many of the same steps
can be used to set the float levels on many different types of carburetors.
How a carburetor works, schemes and explanations
This video explains, not in too much detail, how a 28mm Walbro diaphragm
carburetor works (using mainly schemes to point out what happens inside).
It explains what occurs at the venturi, what the butterfly valve is for,
how the needle doses the amount of fuel, and how does the diaphragm slide

Suzuki DR650 Mikuni carburetor re-jetting using Six Sigma Jet Kit
This is a short video of rejetting the Mikuni carburetor on my DR650 with a
Six Sigma jet kit that I got on eBay. They include personalized
instructions that were fairly easy to follow and several jet sizes for
different progressive stages and altitudes. This video shows settings
recommended for Houston w/airbox mod, stock muffler, and mild performance
increase (small hole drilled in slide, but did not clip the spring.
EDIT: You can also call you local dealership and ask them what settings
they would use. They usually sell the jets and you can pick up the spacers
at Lowe's. I do recommend the extended fuel mixture screw from ProCycle.
How to adjust the jets on motorcycle carburetors
This is a brief introduction to the fairly touchy process of re-jetting
your carbs. The techniques discussed here are fairly universal to most
carburated motorcycles, but not all, so your first step in performing carb
tuning should be to consult your repair manual and online forums. Hopefully
this video can demystify a lot of the process for you, so that you have the
courage and interest to do this yourself. Let me know if you have any
How to Disassemble and Clean a Mikuni Carburetor - DIY Snowmobile, Mower, ATV Carburetor Repair
This video provides a walk through on how to disassemble and clean a small
engine Mikuni carburetor. The carburetor in this DIY video is off of a
1996 Atctic Cat Puma 340 cc engine and should be very similar to other
carburetors used on most small engines. Briggs & Straton, Honda, Kohler,
Suzuki, Yamaha and many other engine manufacturers use carburetors that are
very similar to the carb. in this video. Often times the carburetor jets
need to be cleaned or replaced and often times the needle valve needs to be
replaced or adjusted as shown in this video. Old fuel can clog or gum up
a carburetor and often times cleaning it as demonstrated in this video will
help. In this process I determined that I had a cracked float bowl drain
line and this was the source of my fuel problem. The float bowl was not
filling as it was draining out, I assume this is the reason that my Mikuni
carburetor was also very clean. There was no fuel sitting in the float for
the last few years.
