as long as your getting smoke and no bog you can lean it out more...temp is only a guide line when tuning...

if its the trx 2.5 engine then aim for around 250 as the range for that engine is 230-270 try not to let it get over 270.. if it is the pro .15 engine then it likes to run even hotter,, aim for 260-270 with it,,

there is a point where the engine just runs happy.. where it wont act up and do well.. that spot can change with each engine.. when you get on the gas make sure you see some smoke coming out of the pipe,, this is a good thing.
