Now my question is, on the second page it shows a needle with some grooves in it along with a circlip. HOWEVER, my needle is more like the one on the first page with a big "head" and like 2 grooves under it, no circlip there though.
How would I go about to adjust my needle if there is no circlip and not as many grooves (if they are even grooves at all)??
If it is running rich and you are at wide open throttle you need to adjust the main jet not the needle. The needle works between 1/4 to 3/4 throttle. Most of the time the needle is to lean that is why you cannot adjust it leaner. Try to find a older carburetor and get the adjustable needle out of that. Just a throught, do you have a friend that has a adjustable needle you can barrow to see if that is your problem.
The carb itself looks different where the diaphragm sits (round vs round with a flat edge) so I dont think swapping out the needle alone will work.
Is there any other way to adjust this? Whats this I read about a tab you can bend to adjust the mixture? Anyone have a pictorial guide? I read alot of articles but theres nothing that shows it clearly (sorry Im a picture person)
The needles will fit from one to the other. I have done this many times. Of course this does not mean there is something different on the market. I would like to see if you could try it and then you will know for sure.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
