When your engine is still being run-in, the temperature will be higher.Because the piston and sleeve are still tight.The friction brings heat.You may need to rich the low speed needle.Because the low-speed needle is adjust idle flow rate of the fuel.As time goes on, the temperature will become normal. At this point you can begin leaning the needle incrementally and keep it around 100~120C (212~248F).

I'm sorry, but that is overly hot. Check for something like airleaks. Your engine should be around 180 when breaking in at idle.
