    First and foremost break in the engine. OR YOU WILL BE SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    An engine that is not broken in correctly will last you maybe a month or two. If you have already CORRECTLY broken in the engine then yes you will need to adjust the needle valve. Usually just the high end needs to be tuned but that is not always the case. Refer to the search and look for tuning an engine.
