You can't. The computer controls the air/fuel mixture depending the information it receives from various sensors. If one of the information it receives is incorrect, this can affect the air/fuel mixture.

At the base of the carburetor are 2 screws. One adjusts the idle speed and the other adjusts the idle mixture. Screw the idle mixture in until the engine starts missing then screw it out 1 turn. Then, adjust the idle speed screw to about 850 RPM.

Start at 1 1/2 turns from seat and adjust until you get the best idle

First, you will want to be sure that it isn't flooding. Be sure that the automatic choke is working properly. Set the timing to factory specifications. Then you can only adjust the idle fuel air mixture. If it continues to run rich then the carburetor is most likely the fault.

Too much air to fuel mixture with your carburetor, adjust the carb settings to allow for more fuel to enter the chambers.

Carburater adjustment only affects idle mixture. If you need to adjust the mixture when it's under power, you'll need to use an exhaust gas analyzer and change the jets and/or metering rods.

If it has a carburetor, then there should be a screw somewhere on the carburetor. If it's fuel injected, then I don't think you can adjust the idle without hacking into the computer.

Adjust the carburetor although being that old the carburetor may be in need of a rebuild with a rebuild kit. Rebuild kits come with directions.

The fuel mixture is probably set to rich. Also, the wrong spark plug (with regard to heat range) could be in the engine. If you have an adjustable carburetor with mixture adjustment screws, try turning the screw (probably located on the bottom of the carburetor, in the middle of the bowl) inward 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn. This will lean the mixture. If you have a no-adjust carburetor, then there is not a lot you can do to change the mixture. Try using/replacing the spark plug with the correct spark plug as recommended by B&S. Good luck!

To adjust the carburetor on a Yamaha badger is really simple. There will be two screws one is a slotted head and the other is a four way. To adjust the carburetor you have to turn the screws clockwise until the engine idles fast.
