Probably more if I think hard enough.
My weight is around 220lbs (100kg). I have MTB with 1.95" off-road tires. I'll try to inflate then more.
I have standard (big) sprocket, Shell gas with 1:16 Statoil 2T oil, long exhaust. I thing rest of listed below its ok. Maybe excluding carb. Regulation bolt is about 3,5 rounds (thats what manual say) on the idle works fine. I dont know how to set needle or throttle rope, there is no word about it.
