Default ys91 tuning

I aquired a ys91 second hand and it has approx 4-5 gallons through it running on a mp2 in a raptor 90(8.45 ratio) Im having some issues tuneing it and wondered if anyone can share their needle settings. If your from Ohio...all the better!!!

Needle settings will vary according to atmospheric conditions.
Here is my settings using Cool Power 25% fuel with 17% HV oil.
Also I have a Viperhead on the motor which allows the needles to be a couple of clicks leaner.
I am using Hatori SB 16 and 7.75 to 1 ratio in Tempest.

Mid Range needle ( long one) 1 3/8 turns open from fully closed
High Needle ( short one) 3/4 turn open from fully closed
Low end The needle is just about flush with carb barrel. I didn't mess with it, but I believe it is like 1.5 turns out from fully closed.
