Default Need Help! Novarossi 353 09 Tuned Carburettor Setting

Hi All,

I am from Malaysia. I have changed the glow plug to C6TGF (Original glow plug C5TGF) for my Novarossi 353 09 Tuned. Can anybody tell me what the new carburettor setting is?

I already tried the factory setting, 5 turns from fully closed position for high speed neddle and 2.5 turns for low speed needle. The engine was still too rich and easily shut off when idling. My NT1 clutch (factory basic setup) was also difficult to engage due to low rpm.

Thank you.

You have your factory setting right.
The factory setting is already on the rich site so try the HSN to make a little leaner.
Look at you spring preload on your clutch if its intact before you make any adjustment on your engine.

I have the exact same engine and i tuned it for the first time last weekend.

The settings from factory are WAY too rich and the engine hardly runs.

Your clutch probably isnt engaging because the engine can not rev.

I tuned the LSN first and got it to idle perfect then started at 5 turns on the HSN and eventually ended up around 3 3/4 turns with temps around the 130 degree mark.

Just go nice and slow when tuning and check the engine temps every minute until the HSN is correct.
