I've seen them both ways.

.325" with a 8 pin sprocket

3/8" with a 7 pin sprocket

Personally, I like the 3/8" better

Same for me.  Will stay with 3/8" on my 5100's.

There isn't the same need to set the carb lean from the factory in Europe as in the US (to comply with mindless EPA rules) - but I still totally agree with Magnus, that the factory setting never can be trusted.

Regardless of the market, it is the dealer responsibility that the carb is set right at the point of sale - but it is best to check yourself. The same setting will not be right in all conditions, there are lots of variables.

That usually happens on those saws (including my 5100S) - but it usually isn't really bad enough that I am worried.

Keep your chain sharp and never cut dry wood?

I am keping my chain sharp but I think you are right about the dry wood. I have been cutting some dry oak!
About the set of the carb the dealer said the factory settings are ok!
I dont know a person wich I can trust to do a carb setting so.......
Thanks again!
