    Anybody pulled the sparkplug on there Shind. lately, and noticed it's real lean? Just wondered if anyone's had to adjust thier mixture screw.

    Is it not a 2 cycle? Pre-mixed gasoline?

    I know the manual said to return it to a dealer, if it's too lean, but I was wondering if there was a way. Nobody noticed thier plugs being lean?

    the end of the plug should be a light gray /brown,if it was burning to lean it would score the piston on the exaust side,and the unit would not run well,as it would have low compression ,I would watch the oil mixture very closely as all units made today run lean to meet emissions

    It's light grey. Just always figured it was better to be on the rich side than lean. Always use Shind. 2 stroke oil, mixed right.
