After a 20 mile ride in 95 degree weather head temps at the exhaust port were around 265. The jetting is a bit on the rich side. Will pull plugs and have a peek. It's only got 37 miles so far but it's definitely running better, smoother and quieter than it did before. Having pistons that fit the bore is a good thing.

My bad,
The choke regulates air. The enrichenor regulates gas.
Better?
