I just bought a jet kit and a bunch of other stuff for my 05 foreman 500es and was wondering if anyone had a pic of where this little screw goes and where the carb spring is that I can cut and how many coils I cut. thanks a lot for any pics it didn't have any directions and I figure a picture is better than talking to them.

The spring is on the top of the carb. There are 4 screws holding the cover (brass colored, when it new) on. Be careful those screws are soft and they will strip easily.

As far where the screw goes? Not sure what screw your talking about. The jets are threaded. The air/fuel screw is on the bottom side of the carb. Screw it all the way in, then back it out 2.5 turns per the Dynojet instructions, to start.

how did ya'll get to the bottom of the carb to do this. Did you take the carb off, or did you just rotate it on the bike. Did you have to worry about things being built the american way "always having extra pieces"

why would you cut the spring at all, what does that do. Why wouldn't you just use the dynojet spring. Sorry I'm a little confused

Some folks beleive it (cutting the spring) increases throttle response, over a DJ spring. I have not tried it, probably won't so I can't really give you an opinion.

The A/F screw can be accesed fron the bottom of the carb, but to install the main jet, you will have to loosen the clamps holding th e carb and rotate it 180deg.

I ordered the kit off atv connection and all I got was a little brass screw so I called them and he said thats all I need to do is just tighten the screw so thats why I am cutting the spring but now I can't remember how that little piece of plastic goes back in the fuel bowl any pics or instructions would be great and I need 2 new screws cause these screws are fucking ****. Oh btw can you tell I hate working on my 4 wheeler but It's better then paying $50 an hour for someone who still doesn't know what they're doing.

I had mine done for $80. Sometimes the money isn't worth the hassle. Picked it up by the end of day and did not have to adjust anything.

Here is a link to Dynojets PDF instructions with a couple pics.
