mine ran around 240-260 at a good tune i would check your clutch and your idle screw at your carb. if that aint it its your low speed needle prolly to rich but could be lean bogging

I think it was running to lean....which explains why it was running a little hot and dying out when not giving her the gas.

Thanks

Cool

I also run mine 240 to 270 Of course its not like temp guns can be close in readings. Between the three of us that race all the time together there is a 10 degree diff between all three.
