i'm pretty sure. that's why i'm tryin' to get opinions. the 2 1/2 is for the slide on the low. and that is from flush if i'm correct. meaning 2 turns in from flush. just the opposite. thanks

I have the OS CV-RX Hyper with slide and run like this - 1 3/4 turns out on the HSN and 1 1/2 to 2 turns IN from flush on the LSN.

It changes though with exhaust setups and weather. Holds well though.

I have found I have to lean, lean and lean this thing out on occassion and then bring the fuel back into the mix ;)

Matts and Chris are on the $$$

I have barrel carbs on all 3 of mine. I did notice that the OS took a lot of leaning from stock settings before I found any power. Once I found the sweet spots for both the upper and lower needles, its only a maximum of an eighth turn in either direction to keep it where it needs to be on any given day.
