If this link is clicked on, and allowed to run, a couple (or maybe more) video clips discuss some interesting CV carburetor phenomena:
One additional detail might have been included; the BYPASS idle passage; on some CV carbs, an idle mixture bypass passage, in addition to the passage controlled by the idle mixture screw. allows fuel to be drawn into the venturi.
I think possibly (do not know for a fact) this bypass idle mixture passage permits engine operation in cases where the idle mixture screw may be closed off.

|sonnyny||That was my fear but no damage I can see. I checked the valves 1K ago and they are all in spec, no noticeable noise out of the top or lower end, and not burning oil (1/4 qt. in between changes). I attribute that to running the 91 octane which eliminated pre-detonation which would have damaged the valves. Crazy how this thing came out of the factory like that and ran perfect for 8K miles.|

Got Knocking Pinging Popping? Do The .22 Mod
I have an 09' with 18K miles and since about 8K miles I started to experience pinging during acceleration or pre-detonation of fuel and popping/light backfiring when the throttle is closed at a roll in gear. I cleaned the air filter, tightened the exhaust bolts, checked timing, changed plug, decarbed the engine with seafoam, and ran seafoam through the carb but nothing worked.
As time went by it became worse so I started to just use 91 octane which cured the pinging but not the popping. I did lots of looking on web and there are lots of you out there with the same issues. The solution is the .22 Mod. Did mine yesterday and all problems are gone and the throttle response is incredible. If you don't know what it is do a search or look at the vid on youtube.
Strange thing is that when I drilled out the pilot mixture screw cap and tried to turn the screw in it was already bottomed out and would not turn in at all. I have been riding it this way since it left the factory but no symptoms of a lean mixture until 8K miles. Anyway hope this helps.
BTW, the #4 washer (mentioned in the vid) at Ace Hardware is too large to fit tight on the needle and inside the plastic spring seat legs. I had some tiny washers and one fit just right. The washer should be about the size of the needle head.
