Re: [DML] Help! Is this normal?

I would have to say the smoke is gray. Looks like cigarette smoke. I
adjusted the CO with the 3mm hex wrench and it did improve it. I
turned left to lean about 1/4 of a turn and the smoke lessened from
coming out 4ft from the muffler to about a foot(this make sense?)
perhaps I have to get back in there and turn a little more? Thanks for
the reply!
