You are better off to learn how to tune an engine. Be sure you can make it start and from there the engine will tell you how it runs and what needs to be adjusted.

Otherwise on kyosho.com you can find a download page with all the manuals.

I tried looking on the kyosho website and couldn't find the needle settings. If I describe what the motor is doing would you give me some pointers?

Ok I finally found the needle settings, I was trying to look for the settings in the inferno gt2 manual but I guess I just had to look in the ke25 manual. No wonder it was running badly the needle settings were way off. If anyone wants to know the hsn is 3.5 turns out from closed and the lsn is 2 turns out from closed.

So the engine was running.....
Again, the factory setting is no good/optimised sttting. Please learn how to tune your engine.

When as an example changing the exhaust the back pressure will change and with that also the tuning of the engine,

Do not get me wrong, people asking for factory settings are most of the time the people who can not tune. If you can tune an engine there is totally no need for a factory setting. People who can not tune an engine are the ones that do not get the best out of it and could be ruin their engine. I only want you to get the best out of your engine.

For an engine that seemed to be running but not good. With knowledge of how to tune no factory setting is needed and finally you will end up with a good running engine. I never rely on a factory setting, they can be far off and with a different exaust even go to lean.

Update!!! I found the factory carb settings a little off. The correct and safe settings are high 4 turns out low .5m + 1.2 turn from flush and idle 1mm carb gap. I broke a new engine in and I had to use the carb restrictor and my fingers to get the engine to run slower and suck more fuel during break in. After the recommended tanks the engine continued to start hard and rev up after a 1 minute. I finally opened the low 1/2 turn more and the engine ran smoother and idled lower. Starts easy now. I switched to a roto start system. Now I can actually tune the engine better.
