The description explains my problem. How does one get to the screws to adjust idle mixture on carbs 1 and 2?

85 GL 1200 -- Runs fine but idle is not so hot-so , a little rough. Sounds a little like a Harley (UGH!!) ... potato potato potato...

Or others have tools with a small right angle drive that turn when you turn the handle, also about $30

Welcome Vancouver,

Which screws are you referring to? Idle mixture or idle sync?

To adjust the mixture you should do an idle drop. To adjust the sync, you'll need guages.

Why ain't we ridin'?
