Go onto the ktm web site and download the owners manual for that bike. Your carb should be altered for altitude and temperature. Ie, the air is denser at sea level so needs to be set richer.

Im presently running, airscrew 1 complete turn out. Needle n8rh 4th ring from top. main jet 170. Check the spark plug condition too.

I dont suppose its carb overflow?

My 300 was like that, the needle was on the top setting, took it down 2 notches, fine now.
