does any one think a 55 pilot jet is way to rich for a 265 dri pv? (86 short rod, 38 a/s,195 main, dgh needle, air box elimanater, lrd pipe, 200 psi comp, 32:1 927 castor) the reason i ask is i have a 52 pilot currantly but i have to adjust the air screw to 1/2 turn out just to be able to to leave the line with out bogging or dumping clutch.

I know I started with a 55 pilot and couldn't get mine to idle. Went all the way down to a 48 and can now back out the idle screw a little and air screw is 2 turns out. Imo I would say a 55 is to rich.

195 main sounds rich too. on my 310 i was 48-50 pilot and 170-172 main. my cr 250 with a 38 keihin A/S is the same.

where my air screw is at tells me that i need to go up on the pilot. if i take my air screw out a half turn at a time it just gets worse. the only way it will run "ok" is with the air screw almost all the way in.

that seems too rich to me also. have ya had the carb apart and checked the circuits, using compressed air? also may want to check for air leaks.

give your carb a good full cleaning and then try going down a couple on the main see if theres improvement. that main jet at least for my location 600ft above sea level. temperatures 70-90 degrees, high humidity would be way too rich.
