Default Need help Tuning

I need some help tuning my Maxx, I am trying to figure out whats the best way to tune it? What are some methods and tricks I can do to make it easier? I think i got it tuned about rite but i notice sometimes it will pop when it is starting to take off.. As like gas was filling up in the muffler or something.. Not sure if this is whats happening but i do notice a puff sound sometimes.

But i basically just need some guidelines on tuning it

Lean out the lsn a bit, your idle speed will probably kick up, simply turn the idle down. You want it to launch nice with no hesitiation or bogging. Lean the lsn till you have a nice launch out of the hole without lean bogs, turn the idle down accordingly. You will probably have to richen the top after doing this. Typical common tuning problem, rich lsn and lean hsn.

Along with the tuning, make sure the inside of the clutchbell is free of grease and crud. You can take some fine grit sandpaper and run it around the inside of the cb, then wipe it out well with a dry cloth. I do this (especially) with new cb's..just one extra thing that may help.
