1988 fa 50 suzuki. It starts and runs but will not idle unless I use about half choke. Do you know the settings for the idle screws?

1 1/2 to 2 1/2 out from the full in position. Check to be sure you don't have any air leaks on the intake side of the carb, or anywhere at the air box, or at any vacuum connection coming from the carb manifold.

I am going to take a wild guess and say that your carb is probably dirty or gummed up. Just drop the float bowl, clean it and spray some carb cleaner thru the main and idle jet if you can get to them.
