thanks for post >> big flame from rear some times im told and dont know about jets will look at plug etc ref mixture yet
Big flame backfire (blue) would be from header or exhaust. Maybe leaky carb boot, but flames I would say exhaust.
I would check everything, but your exhaust first. Just your header out of allignment can make your bike spit foot long blue flames (trust me, been there....) If you have an air leak, jetting changes won't do much all.
You might want to change your exhaust gaskets, when is the last time you changed them?
