Help with Carb

Hi, I'm new and i have a 1999 Honda Foreman 450. I was wondering what the main jet and idle screw was to be set at (or how many turns out for best idling). If you have anything please let me know!!!! Thanks

welcome to the forums. not following you here ?, you need to know the pilot jet/screw setting ?, or the idle knob setting ?. if it's the pilot jet/screw setting ?, most are around 2 turns out from lightly seated. not sure if the service manuals can still be gotten here ?, but if they can ?, down load your make/model, and locate the settings in it :-).

It helps to look here in the Home area for download able shop manuals but this is best done on a regular computer, not a cell phone.

I can't find it either when looking on this phone.
