preditor carb peice of *@#~!

my buddy has a predator carb street version with idle circuit.he tells me he was trying to tune it and now it is popping threw the carb when you try to give it gas.by the way he lives in Michigan.
anyway does anyone know were the base setting are for this carb?he said there is two screws on the carb one for idle mixture and and one for main fuel metering.
i have no idea what he adjusted but he said he turned the big screw and it started to pop but he was and did not pay attention as to how many turns he moved it.
the site did not tell me nothing about this.http://www.predatorcarb.com/home.html
any help would be great i hate trying to fix something over the phone.
thanks for any help!

I have no experience but have been intrigued by the carb since it was introduced a couple decades ago as a Kendig. It uses a similar metering system as the motorcycle carbs that I have volumes of experience with. You might try a local guy that is good with performance motorcycle carbs. I mean someone that has had experience since the 60s since the newer ones are somewhat different. If he gets fed up, I may be interested if he wants to sell.

Preditors are far superior to Holleys, he might have got a bad carb. having the variable CFM is really what makes the carb a good setup

been a while since i've been online guys, but i'm still here. if anybody has any questions regarding predator carbs, please feel free to email me at my home email: goulette@gci.net.

biggest thing to remember about tuning a predator, is that you can't tune them like a holley!!! they work completely different than a regular carb, and therefore require a different tuning approach!!!
