Well, it's either too rich, or too lean top end..and usually it's too lean. Right after it shuts off, put some spit on top of the cylinder head. If it REALLY start's to sizzle, it's way to hot. So open the top(main) needle like 3 clicks. If the spit just sits there, and does nothing, it's too cold. Then you would close the needle a few clicks.
Before you do any tuning, you have to make sure the engine is fully saturated with heat, usually a minute or two will do it.
