    Default mantis carb settings

    does anyone know what the H and L needles settings should be on a 2 cycle Mantis? I've opened them both 1 turn from gentle seating but I don't want to lean it out too far. It won't 4 cycle like a chainsaw.

    Default Re: mantis carb settings

    H and L are the High and Low speed mixture adjustments. Unless the needles have been jammed closed, most 2-strokes will start at 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 turns out, but consult your manual if you have one.
    Happy as if I had good sense.

    I found a mantis manual and the base settings are not given, you could try searching by the engine manufacture for the info.

    Dose the carb have limiters on the h l screws? Or have they been removed?
