I replaced an OS50 hyper..The KME slid in perfectly without a hitch.. The only adjustment required was to shorten the link to the throttle arm a couple of turns..Logo 600SE

Please keep us posted how the Vibe does with the KME. I am planning to put either the KME or NovaRossi in mine.

I got to fly this am with the new KME..

I hovered 2 tanks at 1.75 turns out at 1800 for breakin, then 1.4 turns out at 2050 (18000) and 620 blades.. . The factory idle setting was perfect.. I still dont think I have found the best needle setting yet, but there was no bogging where I set it with 11+/- pitch.. The engine backplate was just warm with continuous tumbles, rolls, tick-tocks, etc.. My only reference motor is to the OS50 hyper, but it sure felt like a 90 to me. I have only accolades. +++

I wonder what kind of needle setting you guys are using?

I have a couple of gallons of fuel thru this motor now.. I found that leaving the idle setting at factory settings (slot inline with carburetor) and putting the high needle at 1.3 turns, the head temps are only at 80 to 85C with the HS at 2065, 12+/- degrees pitch with 620 gohbees. Seems like it's loafing.Logo 600SE

I cant give an objective answer b/c I took the header tank off with this engine, but subjectively I cant see much difference, maybe a little shorter run time..
My last post temps weren't right b/c the emissivity factor for shiny aluminum is lower when using infra red temp guns. When checked with a temp probe at the sweet spot temp read ~95C.
