Stupid jetting question

Think of it like this, a garden hose with an adjustable sprayer nozzle compared to a fire hose with an adjustable nozzle.
You can adjust the spray from the fire hose down to pretty close to that of the garden hose, but you can't get the same flow from the garden hose that you can from the bigger fire hose. Get it?
When you have adjusted the pilot screw out more than say 2-2.5 turns, it's recommended to go up one size on the jet, and then back the fuel screw in a few turns and start again coming back out to get the proper flow.
It sounds to me like you're lean as well. If you've never adjusted the fuel screw at all, it's probably about .5 turns out. Screw it back in until it seats (lightly) then back it out about 2 turns and see how it runs. Then fine tune it from there.
Btw, you may want to look into a Zipty fuel screw. You can easily adjust the fuel screw when you have one. I adjust mine everytime I ride.

My stock pilot is way easy adjust than a smaller one.
