carb talk

I have be playing with my 95 300ex for some time now with the whole jetting thing. I just wanted to say thanks to ya'll for all the help. I live in south Louisiana and with that being said I was stuck with what size jet to use. Its so humid down here so I was struggling with getting the air/fuel mixture right. I have a slip on DG pipe, UNI air filter, and bored .020 over. I started with 128size main and 38 slow and it runs somewhat ok but too lean even with screw out 3 turns. Now I jumped up to 135 main and 40 slow, screw out 2 1/2 turns. Made a big difference with idle and full throttle. I may be running a lil rich now with my plug being more of a dark brown and when i rev on it it blows out black smoke. I guess I can screw down another 1/4 turn? What do you guys think?? Does my jetting size sound right also??

Hi all. I have just bought an '86 fourtrax 250.
The tank was rusted and the throttle was stuck.
I put a new plastic tank on it and did a basic carb cleaning to loosen everything up.
When i re-installed it and opened up the fuel petcock, fuel pours out of the vent line.
I know very little about this stuff, but I'm assuming i may have a stuck valve.
Whaddaya think?

This is a great post. Thanks for joining.
Howdy, sorry to bee a pain, but , I'm very computer illiterate. I joined this for help on a 87 Honda 125 fourtrax. I saw your carb info and it helped a little,,but I have no idea exactly where to go for asking my question. I thought the site had downloadable manuals, but I'm more than glad to get info from folks with the knowledge and practical experience. I am fairly mechanical, but not computer savy. Lemeeno if I'm in the right place to ask questions. Thanks Joey C.

Is that a genuine Honda carb you put on your Recon? You may get better help starting your own thread and listing all the details there.
