Start w/ wheel turned all the way to left/right. Count # of
turns to other direction. Turn wheel half that #. Where's the jet
pointing? To adjust there's a big nut on both sides of the Berk plate
w/ a seal sandwiched in between. You'll have to adjust these to get the
jet centered. This is how my Kona is anyhow!

This works, but if not check for bad cable, I lost my steering over fathers day cuz the cable opened up above the left gas tank. The inner cable was inch-worming out and lost all right steering. By the way driving with only left steering was a handfull, I was luckly and was close to the ramp.:D
