    Just a quick check on RPM recommendation for setting H screw on a stock 026? I'm not super good at hearing 4-stroke vs. 2-stroke. Thanks.

    It's gonna be in the 12,500-13,500 range. If you're limbing and cutting small stuff you can turn it up to the higher end of that or even a hair past. For bucking firewood, richen it up a little.

    I have a tach. That's why the title asks for RPMs.
