What's the difference between the #9054 vs 9050 .12 Picco?

Yes pretty much. These break in super easy. I do 2 tanks full open throttle very rich on the bench followed by about 20 minutes gradually leaning so that at the 20 minute mark I'm about 90% full race speed. Run like this for another 20 minutes before finally tuning to full race tune. My old novarossi's used to take at least double this and a full race meeting to become fully broken in.

Thanks guys for the replies. Hope I get better service with this mill than the Red Dots I blew up in the past...

Pleasure. I'm sure you'll get great performance from these. Just keep a close eye on the plug to confirm you're running right. The 12's have a habit of hiding lean mixtures when running on track so keep checking the plug each run.

For the LSN, half a turn out from flush
For the HSN, 2.5 turns out from all the way in.

You mean the needle position? For race the LSN is very similar maybe a couple of hours leaner but not more than that. Main needle maybe 3 more hours, but all this depends on the type of track traction available etc. The engine needs to rev nice and crispy and always smoking. If the performance decreses after a few laps it means is too lean.

For break in, LSN you don't move it, only the HSN. In this case will be from half to 1 full turn. You need to make sure the engine is extremely rich so you have the proper lubrication under this process.

Also a lot depends of the fuels. Some have more or less oil content so the tuning changes a little bit

What motor you are running? reason i am asking is because some motors have a domed pistons and other are flat. Depending on that the shimming is different
