Just slapped a new bike together. Wanted to know if my idle sounds alright, let me know if it's too fast, lean, or rich. I will adjust accordingly. Still on break in fuel mixture. Thanks guys.
(I killed it at the end, it didn't stall or anything)

Sounds good to me, as long as it doesn't stall at idle it's good. I do see it smoking from the break in oil, 24/1 is good for break in and won't smoke as bad.

On the first bike I built I went with the 16/1 that was recommended too, after it dripped all over the shop floor from the exhaust a few times I changed to 24/1 for a couple of tanks then went to 32/1.

Great glad to hear it, as for break in I am running 16:1. I know its somewhat controversial but ive always done it that way. Thanks for helping me out, really happy with this build so far.
