    Then it shouldn't be overheating.

    Richen the lsn a little. If the low speed is lean, it can heat the engine up even if the hsn is rich.

    I'm guessing that mean you don't clean it after every 4 or 5 runs? That could be a slight part of the problem. The air filter can even be dirty after driving it on pavement. It doesn't even have to look dirty for it to be full of microscopic dust and dirt.

    If the air filter is clogged it would run rich due to the lack of air, it would smother out. As the others have said, it's too lean somewhere. Or you could have bad fuel that doesn't have enough oil in it.

    A lot of guys have overheating problems because of their idle gap. You can make it idle at a decent rpm with the idle gap off by having the lsn off. Try starting off with the gap around 0.7mm and then start retuning from there. You'll probably need to richen the lsn right off the bat. Then just follow the basic 6 step process, hsn, lsn ,hsn ,idle,hsn ,idle. Now that I have learned to tune these little buggers, I just make very small adjustments to one or two needles at a time keeping up with the temp changes outside and watching the engine temps.
