2: What is the Fuel Screw set at? Is it at the same setting as before you totally cleaned the carb? Might also check the 'throttle stop' setting (internal to carb) - see the 'how to' in the technical section of this website.

This is the first thing that came to mind with me as well, when I read your post. ON a healthy WR with the engine on a stand and idling, I can pull the hot start and the engine will soon die. If I rev up the bike with the hot start on the worste backfiring I have ever experienced will happen when I De-rev (let it go back to idle).
If you are using the hot start to start the bike and leaving it on to keep it going, the first thing to check is your fuel screw setting.

I'm assuming I had some water in the tank and it was causing the missfire.
Easy enought to give it a try.

when you adjusted the valves, was the timing chain moved and or repositioned correctly?
sounds to me like it probably has something to do with one of those things mentioned. go back and recheck everything you touched after your last ride....and good luck.
