Hey mate, doing what you did is no worries. My bike used to be exactly that what you describe and no she's a ripper man. Replace your exhaust slip on, I do not know the USA brands but I've got an Italian pipe on, a Gualdi. You'll start 100 times easier, then you go for a bigger main jet, I just can not remember the size. You'll find your bike so userfriendly mate, unreal. Your bike will be smooth, even power and starts easy and and and, mate it turns her into a nice girl beleive me. Another thing bloke, replace your choke butterfly, the stock ones fall apart and rip the guts out of your motor.
