I don't know if this is simply the sound of the motor or not, but I hear a pinging sound directly related to the speed of the motor.
Is this because I'm running it too lean?
I'm in Florida - sea level, and everyone thinks the e-clip should be on the ring closest to the end of the needle. So I have it there...
I put in a new plug, and run for a few days, so when the bike cools down tonight, I'll pull it out and take a picture and post, but I welcome your thoughts before then as well.
I am also planning on putting an o-ring inside the carb/intake area, and have already sealed intake/head with RTV red.
