high fuel mixture screw?

my warrior cuts out at high RPM's so i went to the yamaha shop and the guy told me to adjust the fuel mixture screw, but doesn't it effect idle not high rpm's? is there another mixture screw in the carb?

Theres one you can't see underneath the carb, thats what he is talking about, take your carb off or just loosen it up and twist it so you can see underneath, is bronze in color. You can start playing with that in 1/4 turns, see what works for you, good luck.

In is less, out is more. Seat the screw all the way in without going crazy, just get it to where it stops, then go out 2 full turns. Thats the midpoint basically, and don't go over 3.5 turns out. What it does is control your pilot jet, if you need more then 3.5 turns, you need to go up 1 size on the pilot.

you should be able to get it from outside, it is in a recess/hole. You won't be able to see it unless you flip that thing over.

i must be an idiot i cannot find this screw! the only plce that it looks like there could be a screw is by where the overflow tube comes out of it but theres a metal ball in that hole. Is that where it is and something is jammed in mine? or am i not looking hard enough?

That brass screw is what you need, the flathead one near the bottom of the picture.

THat is the idle mixture screw, It controls fuel mixture at an idle...

If you are cutting out at High RPM's you'll need to rejet. Put in a larger main Jet. You can get them at your local dealer/Atv shop.

Take the bowl off and its the bigger round slotted brass think in the center of the carb. Look on the side, get a bigger number for richer mixture...

Check out the jetting sticky..

Man i could have sworn that was the screw you were talking about, i mean, what other screw can you mess with on the carb besides the idle. On my bike the idle adjustment is on the side and then that screw is underneath.

Did you pull the plug to see if its rich/lean? You have to do a full throttle run for like 3-4 gears and then just kill the motor while your still at full throttle. Coast to a stop and check it out, if its black, go down, white, go up. Use a new plug each time.
