How the Motorcycle Carburetor Works

How the Motorcycle Carburetor Works

The function of the motorcycle carburetor is very important for the combustion process. This component is responsible for collecting and mixing air and fuel from the vehicle. So that the fuel becomes easier to burn and become energy. 

Even though currently the use of motorcycle carburetors is starting to decrease because many motorcycles have now switched to injection systems, there's nothing wrong if you learn how carburetors work. Especially if you are a fan of classic motorbikes and intend to collect them.

Let's find out how a motorcycle carburetor works in full and how to care for it! Carburetors work in a similar way to mosquito spray. The liquid fuel is sucked in and converted into fog, to do this process the carburetor relies on the movement of the piston that moves down when doing the suction stroke. 

It is this fuel mist that will be used in the combustion process and the amount or amount of fog produced to be transmitted to the combustion chamber, all depends on the opening of the gas casing of the motorcycle you are riding.

The way motorcycle carburetor works is still very manual when compared to the injection system. However, if there is damage or want to change settings, fiddling with the carburetor is certainly easier than adjusting the injection system. 

No need for sophisticated tools, all you need to do is simply use a minus (-) screwdriver. For example, if you want to adjust the use of fuel to be more efficient, you only need to turn the gas and fuel settings to reduce the flow rate. Even if you want to modify it, such as changing the pilot jet and main jet with a larger size so that the fuel flow is smoother, it can also be done easily
