It’s basically in the title. I don’t have a nice golden color and I’m curious about if I should richen my mixture.

I’m running 32:1 and the c clip is on the top most notch. Would a richer mixture change torque or power output at all?

I haven’t cleaned the spark plug since changing the needle and put maybe 6 miles on it. I do notice it’s a bit louder but today was windy so I couldn’t really tell much else

Clean the plug, ride it for a while with your richer setting and then have a look at the plug.
That looks o.k. You don't want a white or very light grey.

I used to have a signature on my profile.....
"If it ain't broke, and you mess with it long enough, it will be."

There is a much less PC version that I can't post here that my grandfather used to say.....
