Odd jetting issue....thoughts

So as of today my idle seems kind of high. Currently I have my air control screw at 1 turn out to richen it up a bit and regardless of where I adjust the idle screw it stays the same.

165 main

35 pilot

#2 clip N2ZJ

If the idle stays high does that indicate lean conditions or rich?

The first thing i would do,is pull the pilot jet out and see if it is plugged.

What altitude are you riding at? Unless you are riding at a high altitude, those settings do seem lean for the winter/cold temps.

What you describe is a lean condition so put in a 38 and it will strat and have better bottom end.

also, don't some of the KTM 2 strokes have a stock AS setting of 1 turn?

throttle cable free, not hung up at the carb or anywhere else?

pilot clear?

idle screw not broken?

Maybe . Yes . Yes . No .........

turn the AS in more or go to a larger pilot. If that doesnt do it then air leak maybe, something wrong.

Try a 38 pilot. 35 was too lean for me and I'm at 3,500'.
