    The idle speed screw opens up the butterfly in the carb. Turning it in, (clockwise), opens it more. I had to turn it a little more than 1/2 and then my bike started much easier. Small increments

    How was it running before you put it to the stock settings? Put the air/fuel back where it was so it runs without the enricher, let it warm up until it runs without you having to give it throttle at least 6 -8 minutes, then turn the air/fuel screw clockwise until you hear the motor start to stumble, then turn the air/fuel counterclockwise until it runs smooth and then an extra 1/4 counterclockwise. You should tune it by ear, the factory settings as stated above are only a starting point, all carbs take different settings due to tolerance's within the carb.

    ... additionally; all carbs should be 'set' when the motor is warm..not cold. Then adjust from there if needed in colder weather for start-up (enrichment device).
