Carburetor Adjusting: Idle Drop Procedure

In this video I wanted to go over one super important carburetor adjusting technique we call the Idle Drop procedure. This type of adjustment is one I would consider to be the final touch or "tune" you need to put on the carb to REALLY dial it in.

This type of adjustment really works wonders for those of you who throw on common bolt on upgrades like exhaust, hi-flow air filters and more. Many people think that re-jetting is always required when you change those type of parts out but you would be surprised at how well this works!

Carburetor tuning is quickly becoming a lost art but I hope this helps to shed some light on the topic and helps you dial in your motorcycles carb!
