how long is it running prior to it getting hot and does this happen only sitting or when riding.

I agree with Mr. De Mar, probably too lean. I was asking the questions to see if it got hot just sitting there. The 4t's will get hot sitting rather fast, but if this is riding then too lean.

Search in this forum for more info, I think it is there
