Initial round of mods done! The bike started!

Phwew, with my mechanical prowess (or lack thereof), I only gave myself a 50% chance that it would actually start!
I didn't have too much time test the bike much because it was dark, etc., but a couple of things I did notice--I didn't have to keep the choke on for longer than 30 seconds, the engine did not run like garbage like it did pre-mods, and it seemed to have a significant increase in torque in 2nd gear.
Before moving to Vegas from Washington State, I didn't have the problems described above. But since moving to Vegas, the problems developed. Now, it's time to do some fine adjustments and get her dialed in.

i recently picked up an 04 450f from California, and have not yet messed with the jetting.

Once I get a chance to ride the bike more this weekend, I'll post whether any tweaks are needed.
I'm relatively new in town, so if you're even looking for a tag along on a biking or "non-machine gun" mission, drop me a PM!
