Spec's wont make overall good power lean.....motor's NEED fuel to do their Thang and if you go robbing it of its needed GO juice it will get hot and loose its compression....when you see NO smoke and feel something not right.... i would be lookin for a tuning wrench.

Yes there is definitely smoke. At the beginning of the strait it has smoke then looses it as it goes faster. Thats normal right?

Switch to 30%. More power, cooler engine.

To whom said dont tune by smoke, you sir are retarded. Always tune for power, but if you never see smoke, its lean. You should never tune to temp, only use it as a guide.

I think the problem with saying "little smoke" or "good smoke" is that those terms are relative. It really takes someone showing you live in person what "good" or "a lot" of smoke actually is.

Really? I'll send you some fuel samples to try out. You will never get it to run rich enough to show a good smoke trail. Yes most fuels put out a good bit of smoke but not all.



BTW, Byrons smokes a bit less than most of the others, though there are some that smoke even less.
