Thank you but I was asking about the c clamp on the needleI know the Mfg recommends 16:1 but it's generally accepted that is too much oil. Mixtures that thick will eventually gunk up the exhaust pipe. I recommend breaking in the engine at 24:1 and then going 32:1 after break in using a high quality 2 cycle synthetic or semi-synthetic oil, others might disagree and the subject has been argued on other threads.
Thank you that's exactly what I needed to know sorry I'm all over the placeIn the other thread you posted a picture of your plug, as you think you're running lean. If that's the case then you want to move the clip down a notch. This will let more fuel past the needle enriching the mixture.
Okay, that's norm for new engine.8 Fluid ounces per gallon
Will do. I'll post the picture in a bit. Give me about an hour.Okay, that's norm for new engine.
Can you run the bike pretty hard and when it's close to top speed pull the clutch in and hit the kill at the same time. Coast to a stop and pull the plug and take another picture, this will give you a truer reading on the running mixture. Make sure you ride it until it's warm before you do the test.
