I know exhaust temp depends on where the exhaust temp sensor is placed and how far from piston it is. It also depends on what cylinder, timing, gas and countless other variables on each individual engine. But is there maxim you would every want to see on a ICC/KZ engine? The one rule of thumb I have heard is 1200º F is what you shot for. But depending on the different variables I know on a particular engine it could be different. Does anyone run theirs much hotter than that? Is there a temp that will defiantly be to hot no matter what you are running?
Yeah that is my concern. On my TM K9b my one cylinder seems to like to run really hot. I have gone up to 1250º even seen 1275º F. And it seems like I could lean it down even more because spark plug still seems pretty wet. But I am concerned with going any leaner with the exhaust temps getting that high. Didn’t know if anyone else ever got their exhaust temps that high.
