I use one made by FAST. (Fuel Air Spark Technology.)

Cost me $450 when I bought it. There are others, some petty cheap.

I bought the one I have because it does both Gas and Methanol. It also has a data logger so I can record what's actually happening under race conditions.

My mate Rex has one with a handlebar mounted analogue meter. It's very easy to see if it's running too rich or too lean at any point. He rides a very highly tuned two stroke and they seize in a heartbeat if they go lean.
