"I ended up buying 2 x grey 50amp plugs from Jaycar. $10 each. They work a treat. The existing plug ends just clip straight in to the Jaycar plug."

"Yep second that. The plugs that come with the engine are crap, we changed them out for ones from supercheap"

"The carbs are not difficult,  you just need to learn what is required and what not.  Try this article on how to set the main jet ,  its a lot easier than teaching the driver to play with adjustable jets as most do not get it until…"

"Yep.... you need a Phd. to work out these carbys. I raced Yamaha KT100s and X30 for 15 years before retiring to allow my son to start racing. I feel for the parents entering the sport with no experience at all."

"awesome video. In the comments , the guy in the video wrote "I start at 3/4, 97maim jet and clip 4 on the needle for sea level tracks. As you increase your height above sea level you can lean the main jet out to a 95." WTF ... Clip 4???"

"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzEtAIzG5jk&list=PLFKUhSKaVS29p2HOOEMnEvmr06z5v4R77&index=5 Watch this, it should help you. Idle speed is one with compression spring on it and brass mixture screw is next to it. "

"Thanks Paul. The "Idle speed" screw is on the outside of the carby, (facing the side pod) What is the "Brass idle screw"? Where is it?"

Paul Knowles replied to David Gibcus's discussion Mini Rok - newbie question
"Std needle setting is 2nd from top, brass idle screw is 1 turn out and idle speed 31/2- 4 turns out. This will give you a good baseline but tuning a mini rok is very much weather dependant just like a rotax with jets, needle height and also float…"

"Not sure what class you are in, but if Cadet 9, be aware of additional limits on data logging and spark plugs (and gearing and jets...), if you are doing club and zone meetings."

"Maxima 927 seems to be fairly widely used amongst Cadets. We did use it at 20:1 for a while but changed over to Redline synthetic at same ratio which in my opinion was better. Most engine tuners still use Shell M as a run in oil and then change to…"
