If it seems like it's not clearing out at full throttle, lean out the high speed needle... just make sure you can still see smoke...

Spud, start here:

2 1/4 out from closed on top
3/4 in from flush on bottom
mid needle flush with carb body

Then lean the top till it is good, then bottom at idle once its up to temp, lastly set the idle gap if its too high or low.
