Comments: Thanks to the info posted in here, I finally got my bike to (mostly) quit back firing on deceleration. Of course, I'm still too far out on the fuel screw but that's the only way to get it to almost quit. I may try one size larger on the main and pilot to see if I can turn the fuel screw in a bit. I have no idea the ramifications for running the fuel screw too far out but I've been running it over 3 out for years now. hehe. Didn't have any major problems from doing that but it was obviously not jetted right.

I tried the 48 pilot without changing the main one time (years ago) and the bike would NOT start. Then, I ran the 45 pilot with stock everything else (besides the Quick Shot) and it ran okay . . . I thought.

But when I tried the 170 main with the 48 pilot it fired right up like it always has (which was more important to me than the back firing). With this new setting, the back firing is almost gone completely and the power does seem to come on a little stronger earlier and stay stronger for longer in the RPM range. I only rode it up and down a mostly flat road a few times so I have yet to test it on a track.

I'm super optimistic that I made the right changes and may post a follow-up about it later this month.

Comments: still running very lean. Quite a bit of backfire on deceleration. 0 to 1/4 throttle gasping for air. Seems that 1/4 to 3/4 throttle feels like it is getting better. I need help!! I'm one crappy day from going Fuel injection.
