whack the throttle

I installed my Q4 and megabomb a week ago and I am having troubles with bog when i whack the throttle. It was jetted very nice up until the new pipe. I can kill it pretty easy it also has some popping(little excessive) along with it. I feel my pilot screw is tuned right(2 1/2 out).

my bike is a 07 yzf450. 48 pilot, 168 main, stock needle 4th clip

Do I need to do the O ring mod? Can I do this without removing the carb? I had a friend work on my carb a while back, I think he used safety wire before on my bike but im not sure. He also said something about a grinder also. Im hoping maybe the safety wire or the o-ring broke or came undone.

Did you look into what FMF says for the are recommended jetting specs for that set up ? My 06 yz450 had to be re-jetted and I have the mega bomb and carbon 4.1 slip on. You can put a new plug in your ride to see how the carb is working but it is probably running rich with that mega bomb and it needs to be leaned out. just a guess tho, check out FMF site for recommendation.
