It may be to lean on the bottom, or because it's so rich, the engine loads up with fuel and you have to clear it out by opening up the throttle. You really only need it super rich for 3 or 4 taks, then lean it!

Als check your pipe to make sure there is no air getting in by the exhaust port on the engine. it happened to me when I mistakenly used a nova pipe with a picco gasket!

What makes you think it is rich? Sounds like it is VERY lean.

If it is running rich, it will not get that hot. Check fuel supply, make sure low-end needle is out far enough, turn the main needle out some more, what ever it takes.
