RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

If you don't prime the engine the electric starter will spin it right up, it only takes a couple of revolutions to get fuel to the carb and it will be purring like a kitten.

Might be a good time to go ahead and get the Saitos.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

LOL sorry guys, that looks horrible.
We were crying like red headed step children when we woke up and there was 1/4" of ice on everything.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

No, I have only used the Omega and my 'home brew concoction'.
I am not going to do anything 'special' for this engine.
My brother and I share, we mostly run OS and Magnum 70 and 91 four strokes...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

This one has a full gallon of the Omega fuel through it plus 24 oz of my 'home brew concoction'.
It may change with more run time but I figure it is what it is at this point.
I know that this is...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Ok here are the numbers on the Saito 125 after I switched to my 'custom mix' fuel and put a "final" tune on both needle valves.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

LOL. yes I agree, I have never seen an engine shake like that, it could quite possibly break an airplane.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !
