You can't lean the lsn that much on that particular carb design. What is happening is the low speed needle is wedging itself ito the fuel nozzle and getting stuck. This would be a case of completely closed off lsn. Back it out a bit until it moves freely. But still this would be a severely lean setting and I wouldn't recommend it.

Default Breaking in the Speed

Use heat gun to warm up the head to expand the p/s
1 tank idle, see to it that there is a lot of fuel/oil mixture spitting out
3-4 tank half throttle
then start giving it more throttle after the 5th tank
no need to adjust any settings till 12th tank then start to race tune it.
don't forget to change out your plug

good luck
ss

thanks for the info... but my question is if you idle one tank, are you concerned about getting the engine up to 200? Or not on this tank? On the rest of the tanks, is the goal to increase the engine temp to 200 and keep it in that range? I would assume more or less throttle is the tool to take the engine into the correct temp range, do I understand this correctly?

My engine remained at 160f during idle, you are correct, keep your temp between 187f and 200f, as long as you have oil spitting out of your muffler you should be good.

Sorry about your bad experience Ed, just trying to give the guy information as he asked. I did not have any problems with the first site myself. So I was just typing from experience.
