Hello sirs.
After my TY80A began to run very poorly and would barely start, I decided to take the Tekei carby apart and clean it. I also changed the reeds. I couldn’t get the bike to start, post rebuild, and finally decided to screw the air screw all the way in. Bike starts and runs better with air screw almost completely seated in.
My question is: Is this a true indicator that the Pilot Jet needs to be larger than the no. 34 installed?
Am I overlooking something?
Thank you.

If it used to run decent I'd be looking for an air leak.

Yes, either air leak, from who knows where, could be left crank seal, or partially restricted pilot jet. Did you take it out & poke a thin wire brush strand through it, if you can find a strand thin enough. Not base gasket broken & sucked in or blown out. Think they were a clamp type carb so is it clamping tight & right home on the flange thingy.

I poke my pilot jets with monofilament fishing line so as not to gouge the orifice.
Lol
Almost sounds painful.
