I just bought a brand new stock OEM Carberator for my buddy 50 and it’s running perfect So I didn’t adjust it at all. I’m curious though - which way do you turn the black Knob to raise and lower the idle speed? I’ve had motorcycles that were different Depending on manufacture.

Yeah, my new carb required zero adjustments and I have no intention of touching it either!

According to my notes with the original carb:
* for the idle speed thumbwheel, in (clockwise) is faster, out (counterclockwise) is slower.
* for the idle fuel mixture screw, out is richer, in is leaner, new is 1.25 turns out, recommended is somewhere between 1-2 turns out.
