  • G230RC Carb Adjustment Problems

    I have an X-ped with a G230RC engine that I purchased off Ebay a week ago. It seems ok but it has very poor low speed accelleration. I have been trying to adjust the HP Carb on this thing but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. All the info I find online about adjusting the H and L screws is for the standard Go Ped engine, with a Walbro WA-167 HP Carb added to it... The G230RC has a Walbro WT-603 HP Carb.


    Does anyone know the right way to adjust the Warlbo WT-603??

    Thanks

    Carb tuning procedures are the same for both the Wt-603 and Wa-167 carbs. Set the high at 1 1/4 and the low at 1 1/2 and work with the high end.
    Ada All the way.

      Well I have those settings and have tried to tune the carb by adjusting the High Needle with 1/4 turns but the engine will not really accellerate untill it hits the mid range rpm. Is this normal?? It is VERY fast once the revs get into the mid to high range but if I give it full throttle at very low speed it bogs down and will not accellerate untill I back of the throttle a little.

      This may be normal for a G230RC but on my old Sport Go Ped I could hit the gas and it would take off like a rocket. This delayed accelleration is annoying.

        Sounds to me that your low end screw is too far out meaning that the low end is running too rich, lean it out a little (screw it in, in little increments) and see what happens. Do it little by little and ride it after every adjustment and see how it reacts. It took me a while to get my carb dialed in on my Active. After you get the low end dialed in, your high end screw should also need some fine tuning. You'll get it!!!

          If you are comparing to a Lh sport engine, the low end loss is normal. The Orc is sorta Grogy on bottom end but really comes on in mid range. Also, the bogging condition (from slow speed, wide open throttle) is normal under heavy loads due to the large venturi of the carb. Nothing will get rid of the big except switching to the Wa167 carb.

            Thanks goes out to all those who gave advice. I have ordered a g230rc tall velocity stack in hopes of better low end. Perhaps I should replace the WT- 603 Carb with a WA- 167.?.? I have adjusted the carb about as much as it can be adjusted. I must say, My old sport go ped with the g23 engine and a ton of modifications took off like a ROCKET when I hit the gas and hit a VERY fast top speed... Makes me wonder if the g230rc is all they make it out to be... Yea it hits a higher top speed but this slow acceleration is NO FUN. I expected it to pull the front end off the ground when I punched the gas...

              If you want some much punch, Get the 167 carb and a 2mm stroker. That will cure your problem. Also, How much do you weight, what frame and what size spindle are you running.

                Well, I finaly got it sorted out and my X-ped is running great! It took a while of fooling with the carb adjustments but now there is virtualy no lag between low speed and high speed acceleration. I can start out very slow and hit full throttle and smoothly accelerate to top speed. The G230rc is FAR FASTER than the standard G23 engine I use to have. It reves a lot higher and pulls harder as the reves climb.

I have decided to get a hp pipe but don't know which opne to get. I will spend any where from $100-$140. I want this pipe to give me more speed torque and acceleration. Also i dont want this pipe to be super loud i live in jersey and am goig to be riding it on the street.
