Short video of where things are now. Starts and runs fine. Sounds like a garbage can.

Honestly- doesn't sound so bad to me.
Idle jet sounds a little rich - sluggish when you open throttle.

You want it to go back to idle quickly - which having it rich enough helps - but u don't want it to be boggy as you rev.

There is a little slapping or ringing sound.
Hard to know what that is if anything.

Also - helpful if it's warm before u shoot the vid!
Cold engine noise doesn't count…

I've noticed vape kits do have more of a rattle sound to them than other ignitions. Why? Beats me.

Yours sounds pretty normal though.

Yep, that's more or less what they sound like.

DR 177 kits are noisy when cold. They can aslo sound a bit noisy at WOT 60mph plus too. I dont hear anything odd about yours, it sounds normal.
