It's always good to start from stock setting on the carb. and work from there. I've heard of probs. with half tanks. fill it up. then keep an eye on it with your temp. gun, when it get down to half. Good luck.

Yeah, richen it when you wot it and it dies or bogs it's to lean and at low fuel it gradually leans it's self out so richen it.

you can combat against low fuel lean. i installed a few months ago but haven't to to test it yet, but i put an inline dubro fuel filter in from the line going from the exhaust to the fuel tank. i got to run it once and i happened to hit a perfect tune but my sisters dog took off running cause it got scared so i shut it down. but yeah it sounds like it is too lean.

I would suggest tuning at half tank that way you dont lean out asmuch when tanks almost empty. I agree sounds lean, If in doubt always go richer first.
