my 06 is backfiring and popping when I let off the throttle..i read that it is to lean and I should turn the air/fuel mix screw out. But I dunno where that screw is. Are they located different on the 06 carbs than the 05's? i have a pic of the 05 but I dont have a screw there on mine? Could someone please tell me where this screw is and if screwing it out is the right thing to do if I am popping and backfiring off throttle? thanks a pic would help too?

It is in the same place, just there is a brass plug covering it that you need to pop out first.

Can you take a picture of that plug (still in the carb) so we can use it as reference for the newer members as they ask this question. I'm tired of using the pic of mine with the Woodward fuel screw in it.

I have the same problem with my 06. I did some searching and still can't find the "air/fuel" mixture screw. Couldn't find it in the service manual either. A pic or a discription of where this screw is located would be a great help.

This is why I need a pic of the underside of an 06 or 07 YFZ carb.....here's my stupid picture on my 05 with the Woodward fuel screw in it. Your's is located in the exact same area but has a metal cap or plug covering the access.

It's recessed into the carb and it takes a small flathead screwdriver to turn it.....you can't actually see it.

Look at the pic I posted....you have to either twist the carb like in the pic or remove the carb.

You have an 06 so you're going to be fighting the rear brake resi is you decide to spin your carb.

i have 2 questions. i just got a tusk fuel screw (because it was free) and was wondering if there will be any problems wit hit.

also, i looked at where i asume the fuel screw should go, and the screw i got looks like it will stic kway far out of the carb. i looked at yfzalterego's pic of his stock fuel screw and it looks like it is longer than what would fit in the hole. so does the aftermarket screw just stick out a ways or what?

thanks

The aftermarket fuel screw (no matter which brand) will be longer then the stocker because the stocker is recessed into the carb.

like he said^^ the screw is ment to stick out so you can get to it and adjust as needed instead of spinning the carb
