Anyone will tell you that leaning the High speed needle will indeed lean the Low speed needle settings because the main fuel delivery system comes from the High speed needle first. That is the primary reason why you tune the High speed needle before touching the Low speed needle.
Well said.

To elaborate on your statement. When you lean the Top end needle you also lean the mid end needle and low end needle. This is the main reason people blow plugs. They lean out the top end without readjusting the bottom end (the one that blows the plugs mainly).
When you adjust the mid end needle you also have to adjust the low end needle the same amount. - (ie. - you lean out the mid end 1/8th turn so you have to richen the low end the same amount to keep the proper setting)

This is the main reason most people always set the high end needle first when breaking in an engine. Some people say you should set the low end first but just ask them how many plugs they go through to get the engine running right. Also, when breaking in an engine (and Im sure the resident engine modifiers will agree) its the initial punch of low end that does most damage to a tight engine and not the top end power which would also suggest that you leave the bottom end rich until the engine is running free.

Yes, this is the same method that I use

As long as smoke comes out in all the throttle ranges, then it's good. If for instance you throttle half way and you do not see any smoke, your low or mid range needle is a little lean. You sometimes cannot detect this because when you blip / rev the throttle, it is always either 0% or 100%. So you need to check what is in the middle too which many people over look.

If oil comes out of the pipe, then your high end needle is rich. Lean it little by little till there is no oil coming out or the pipe. Just make sure only smoke comes out.
