Default High Speed Needle

On your carb, is it possible to back your High speed needle out too far?

Sure it is. You will either start to see orings or it will just come all the way out. It wont hurt it though unless you drop it or tear an oring. If you take it out make sure you put some green slime on the orings when you reinstall. It will keep them from tearing and help seal it up.

I didnt back it all the way off, I thought I had moved it back far enough that it didnt seem like it was threaded anymore. I fixed it though. Was trying to tune my Slayer earlier and had it waaay too lean.

Think my problem was my idle screw wasnt set right or my glow plug was messed up. But I fixed my high speed needle.
