Title says it all. Same mix in my other 2 cycles so why does this unit smoke so much? Otherwise runs great.

Could it be too much oil in the mix. Other 2 cycles are not smoking:confused:

Dirty air filter? I usually put too much oil, no smoking problem ever.

As mentioned before, high speed needle may be set to rich or you may also have a spark arrestor that has carbon buildup on the screen. If you have any oily residue around the spark arrestor/muffler port that is usually a signal that the spark arrestor is starting to be restricted.
