Yes I would start the Needle at 1 1/2 turns out no less it need to be a little more open that the Hyper 50 because it is a bigger motor.

1 1/2 to 1 1/4 is what the optimum running range for the fuel delivery depending on where you live. you can go as rich as 1 3/4 but no more.

Run your engine temp at 180 deg to 195

Break in the motor as to specs at the web site.

Hope this helps
We hope to get the Manual up on the site soon
