check your header for leaks, I got some wicked foot long flames shooting out of mine once even with the spark arrester installed, the header was loose.
A smallest leak will cause the biggest problems, fix this and changing your jetting will actually do something.

I just installed a JD kit but I am pretty sure that isnt the problem. When I rev the bike it will just backfire out the exhaust and shoot flames. If I hold it WOT it will just sit there and backfire at a low rpm and shoot flames. Also, the ignition light flickers only when it is backfiring and not at idle. I did the "floating ground" mod and I'm pretty sure that is the problem. Does anyone have a sketch of the wiring diagram for wiring the aftermarket regulator? I bought one from Trail Tech but the closest thing to a diagram is the printing on the side of the regulator. Does anyone have 2 Cents on how to wire it? Im open for suggestions. Steve
Try going back to the stock set up with wiring and see if it still does it. Are you trying to change the regulator for DC lighting upgrades? If so did you move the wire on the stator?

I think part of the problem was that I had wired the trailtech back into the stock wiring instead of wiring it directly to the battery. If anybody needs any help with their trailtech or B.D. regulator send me a message. I got it all figured out now.
