Adjusting by hand.
Adjusting the carburation (fig. 1)
This adjustment is made as follows:
Get the engine at its running temperature.
Screw idling adjusting screws 'C' fully in; then screw them out by one turn and a half.
By means of your hands feel if pressure at exhaust tubes is the same. In case of differences,
act on screw 'C' of one carburettor until the pressure will be the same (idling speed will be kept
at 900-1000 r.p.m. about; consequently it will be necessary to screw in the carburettor screw of
the cylinder having a lower pressure or to screw out the carburettor screw of cylinder having a higher pressure).
Get the best carburation for each cylinder by acting on screws 'C' (this will be at the point where the r.p.m.
increase slightly) then get idling speed according to point 3.
Disconnect one plug lead at a time and check that the engine stops after firing 5-6 strokes.
If this does not occur, get it by proceeding as follows:
- screw out screw 'C' of the cylinder causing the engine firing more than 5-6 strokes;
- screw in screw 'C' of the cylinder causing the engine firing less than 5-6 strokes.
Adjust idling speed to 900-1000 r.p.m. by screwing in or out in the same quantity screws 'C'.
After closing the throttle control grip, check that there is a clearance of mm 1-1,5 between
cable ends and adjuster screws 'E'.
Check that both gas valves open at the same time by proceeding as follows:
- Turn slowly the throttle control grip and check by means of your hands that the pressure at
exhaust pipes increases simultaneously. In case such increase is not simultaneous, adjust the
carburettor of the cylinder in question by screwing adjuster E in (after loosening its counternut)
until the pressure is the same for both pipes.
Adjusting by means of a "Vacuum Meter"
To get a correct adjusting of carburation, it is advisable to apply to our dealers who can
carry it out by means of a Vacuum Meter.
