Driftah- I run for Werks and don't know off the top of my head the needle seetings but I will call around and find out for you tomorrow. Oh and don't worry about whatever MetalShield was saying about the bearings. I will let you know ASAP about the settings.

Driftah- yeah man no problem. I tried to get up with our team manager today and he was just really really busy so I was unable to get the factory needle settings for you but I will get them within the next 24hrs or so. You are going to love that motor. Reports of 10+ gallons on these new motors. You will love it and it has tons and tons of power!

OK just got off of the phone with Mike Battaile and he said to run a Hot OS P3 plug and to start out with the top and bottom needle flush. That should be a really good starting point for you. Also we recommend a running a 6.0 insert, good fuel mileage and you don't lose to much on the power end of things. Hope that I was able to get you going in the right way.

Metalsheild--Thanks man. Sorry I thought that you came on here just to flame our motors. The rear bearing problem should be fixed and I have yet to have any of those problems with my motors. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. How many gallons before the bearings went?

Default good so far

well I am unsure now about bearing life but if this thing stays the way it is now or even gets better I am sooo happy with this thing it riiiippppsss and break in is not even over yet, if these bearings hold out I wanna buy another its more violent than my nova and yet still controllable even though I have it in a heavier jammin crt hmmm I guess its a good balance as I thought I would be gettin a .28 originally!and I am usin a jp3 on it as well,I was told its better than the 2013 but sounds different,2013 supposedly has a unique note to it I am curious now.

I run the B7 Pro, on my 4th gallon. It's really starting to come alive now...

5.5 restrictor (I'm a non-driving wuss, need to tame it down) with a JP1 pipe and a 14t clutch bell... I do NOT get pulled on the straight either! (I just get passed everywhere else...) Sorry, I don't know about needle settings. I broke it in starting with the settings out of the box, it seemed to be pretty close.

The nice thing is I'm getting close to 10 minute tanks now... I need to lean it just a touch more, I was coming off at 185 degrees last time. I'm pretty sure a safe 10 minute runtime is now within reach.

I know a lot of the "better" drivers are running a 6mm restrictor.

As for the bearing issue, that seems to be more of a problem with the 3 ports... the rear bearing isn't the same! I haven't had a problem yet, but I'll keep an eye on it.

This motor screams!
