I usually touch up the mixtures every time I start to do a little serious cutting.

My 5105 was very rich when I got it.

Learn to identify the "two stroke" - "Four stroke" point and use that as your reference setting?

The accepted measure is to adjust the chainsaw to run (when in the cut) just barely into the two stroke phase. If you lift up on the chainsaw slightly, the engine will four stroke. If you just rev up the chainsaw not in the wood, it will four stroke at the top end.

The problem with late model chainsaws is not to confuse the rev limiting ignition with four stroking!

I just got an email from dolmar germany and they said that the factory settings for europe are ok.
I listened again the dolmar5105 from the video the one with the corect carb setings and mine sound aproximativly the same.

That statement from Dolmar means OK for the coditions when setting them, it doesn't nesessarily mean they are right for your conditions! 

Carb setting is a continual prosess, far from a once and for all one!

Scored cilinder om my dolmar and Makita Romania refused waranty because the mixture  gas and oil was not corect they said to me today!
I use 20 ml  dolmar oil for 1 L gasoline!
Loks like magnus and sawtoll was right about the carb settings Makita Romania said they are ok again?
I have send an email to Dolmar Germany to see what shoul they say about the waranty!
I have a friend with the same problem with a sthill 231 and Stihl Romania sain the same things and I am sure that he respects properly the mixture oil and gas!
Is this hapening just in Romania?
My first chainsaw a chinese saw lasted 3 years and I was cutting with her 20 m3 of wood per year!

Sorry about the lean seize on your saw.  Good luck with your warranty.  Best thing I can suggest is buy a tachometer and tune by tach on this model.  Dolmar originally said tune to 14,500 max. rpm's.  After many scored pistons from lean seize they lowered the max recommended rpm's to 13,800.  Tune a little rich @ 13,500.

I think the poor reliability of the Dolmar 5000 piston/cylinder due to being set too lean from the factory and the resulting poor dealer/distributor warranty support has done more harm to Dolmar than all the good Dolmar/Makita ever did?

This is so wrong in so many ways.

 A good dealer should have set that saw up and then again when you took it back after break in for a retune.    JMO. Maybe I am just out of touch with the real world. But heck  I even do this for the people that get stuff from me.
