Default really high

O.K. i have a problem, the idle on my 125 is so high that the bike slowly floods itself when it is off. if it doesnt run for like 3 days it wont start with kicking, i have to drag it. does anyone know how to turn the idle down on a mikuni TMX carb. I dont want to turn the wrong screw

Look in your owners manual, very easy.

untill... stop your bike by turning the gas off and letting it idle untill it quits from lack of gas.

the gasket in your petcock is bad. it's letting fuel into the carb.

your idle hasnt got squat to do with your bike flooding while it is parked. as yardpro suggest,,check for a leaky valve and set your float. though you still ought to learn how to set the idle.

If you haven't been shutting your gas off between rides.... Start.

my yz125 won't idle. i think its bad for the plug when it does. tune it down until when u let off the gas and it slowly dies.

Be careful, if you set the idle too high, you will bypass the start jet (choke) making it not work anymore.
