What does lightly seated mean?
I am having trouble setting the idle on a 2005 Rebel 250.
It should hopefully have the ability to idle smooth because I have another bike just like it that idles perfect.
I've read the drop method and understand it. This is a fresh rebuild and I removed the tab.
My question is what the heck does "lightly seated" mean (in relation to pilot screw)? Is that lightly almost seated or is it when first resistance is felt?? The difference is quite a bit, can't find anything on this.
After resistance is first felt, when the spring begins to be depressed, it still turns easy a couple more turns before it starts to bottom out (as it begins to poke through the hole in the throat).
Thanks for looking, any input whatsoever appreciated.
