clean your airfilter real good it helped me out when i was tuning mine once you get it real nice and clean only put a little bit of oil in it until you get it tuned right, Youll notice the power increase or decrease more when you tune it, Most people have problems tuning the 2.5, maybe they all had dirty air filters?

u are susposed to clean them when 5 tanks or 575cc of fuel have passed thru the engine the strong trx 2.5 air draw will suck the dirt right thru the filter if u let it go longer killing the piston and sleeve

If you haven't changed out the glow plug yet....while breaking it in....you might want to drop in an OS #8 glow plug. It will make a huge difference in consistant performance.
