i put 2.5 slide in. the plug is white hot in 1/4 throttle. P-6 needle jet 30 pilot pilot air screw 1-1/4 out. regular paper air filter( not a high flow K&N) small can opener baffle . how could it possibly run so Lean only in 1/4 range. should i put RTV between the rubber manifold and the plate? it also has a 6DH2 needle and a 2.0 air jet.that's what they said it can with. i never hear anybody talk about the air jet. i don't know where that is. should i go to a 2.0 slide? that's all i can think of to do.
i know. i was sort of grasping at straws. it doesn't make sense to me that it would have an air leak in just the lower range. but i thought i would ask. i remmember why at first i didn't think the P-8 would help. its because i had already gone to Q-2 and it still ran hot at 1/4 but bogged down above that. this is baffling. i will try a 2.0 slide.
thanks for asking. i am using ultra black. i took the rubber manfold and block off, cleaned up resealed. still runs hot in 1/4 range. checked for exhaust and intake leaks again. no leaks. i got the 2.0 slide and P-8 in the mail today. put those in with the needle lowest setting(clip highest) and currently have 30 pilot in there. still runs hot in the 1/4 throttle range. plug looks new.i can see the heat waves from the engine and the exhaust pipe tics after a short ride of a couple miles. when i go higher than 1/4 it gets a little color but not too dark. the other day i was sure (hoping)it must be an intake leak. now, i am at a loss. i was really hoping to ride this weekend. i think i will put the 35 pilot in and raise the needle a notch, and see what happens. any other suggestions are welcome.
