I tune them by ear very rich to where they four stroke (flutter sound) then I lean them out to where they transition to two stroke (Smoother sound). Then I richen them back up to where they are just beginning to four stroke again.

This is where I've always tuned them to (while free running). When you get the chain into the tree and it starts cutting, the four stroking will change into two stroking (smooth pulling).

That's where you make the most safe power and the saw runs as cool as possible and is lubricated good.

Some of the newest Stratocharged saws do not always change from four stroking to two stroking so clearly as the older chainsaws. With these  you may need to tune by tach?
