Can anybody out there in "Estrellaland" tell me how to adjust the carb ? The spark plug is a sooty black and not being stupid what does this mean-too rich ? Any help on how to put it right would be very grateful. Thanks Jon
Hi! I'm solving the same problem, but additionally I have my carb wire broken. I can inform you when I solve my problem. If you wish I can reply onto your email, if so - send it to me via private message.
So, I'll try, but i don't know wether my English is sufficient...
First of all: Clean the spark plug (or (if you've got money) install a new one). Next thing: Take a look at the Carb (right hand side). Youll find one BIG screw for setting the revs an a small one for setting the air-fuel mix. Leave the big one as it is and screw in the small one totally (caution, don't be too enthusiastic! Else you might crack the seal-ring...). Then screw out 1 1/2 turns (1 3/4 if you've got a carb heating (Kawasaki says, but that's just bullshit, 1 1/2 will do!)). Start the engine and warm it up completely (by driving, not by running the engine on the main stand). After that, adjust the revs in neutral by turning the big screw, you left aside before. Then go for another fast lap, look for a parking place or something and just pull the clutch and stop the engine. Have a smoke or a piss or whatever and srew out the spark plug. Should be quite okay by now. If it is a bit to dark, just screw in the tiny screw on the carbs right hand side abaout 1/4, if it's almost white, srew out about 1/4 and retry. If the spark plug still is black, either your airfilter ist blocked or you're burning oil. Point one means cleaning or replacing, point two means EXPENSIVE!!
Hope that will help!

Hi, I'm an owner with recently BJ250 1999. After several tests carburetor adjustments the symptoms are as follows: idle is good but the problem is that the bike stops each time at deceleration. Thorough cleaning of the carburetor has yet been made. The garage think we need to change carburetor. What do you think?
Thank's and sorry for my english (google traductor) I try to find the good place to put this message, is it ?
