Blue,
A quick way to adjust your high speed needle- well a ballpark base anyway.

Make sure all your drive wheels are off the ground.
Get your screwdriver on the HS needle and rev the engine up to full throttle.
Turn hs till you hear engine fall off - Back it off 1/8.
This will give you an idea of
where to begin.
Remember your engine is unloaded at that setting.
Then run it and get to full throttle and adjust from there.
Use only small adjustments.
Don't run full throttle for to long!!...

I hope this will work for you.👍

Oh gowd not the oil debate thing again....
And remember guys were trying to teach someone to tune via the internet. Going off smoke and sound for top end is just the easiest way, well I guess using a tac would be the easiest way, but that's more money.

OMG, reading this thread just made me way more paranoid about my current carb settings. Same as the original poster, I too didn't find the OBR tuning video helpful at all. It basically shows you what pig rich or super lean sounds like, not much help in terms of actual tuning IMO. Smoke, no smoke.

Everyone tunes different mate. Kinda hard to teach it via internet. A perfect tune for you will be different then for me, and admittedly takes years to be able to hear it. As long as you've had yours, I'd say its prolly fine.

I'm used to tuning by using wideband AFR meters on blown FI motors, lol. I don't trust myself. I had 2 buddys of mine try to tune my DBXL and one tuned very rich, it had gurgling sounds at WOT and the other tuned too lean and there was basically no smoke at WOT and it sounded like it wanted to cut out. As you said, different people tune differently. However, I tend to like to tune a bit richer on the safe side. I don't care much for maximum power output. I usually just use the factory settings and back off if it gurgles too much. I find even on idle settings, some people like a very low idle like it's going to stall and others like it sounding like a nitro.

BTW, so with a pipe, it should be richer on H needle than the factory carb settings?

Generally speaking yes, the pipe should help the scavaging effect of the engine. Allowing it to breath better. It wont really need a lot more most times, just a tweak.

I ended up about 1/8 of a turn richer on my HSN
