Does it run ok? If you haven't done the free mods , and the not so free ones, then you should.
Then ask your questions. You will find like I did that those mods will solve most of your concerns and curiosity.
You are in Cali like me. What works for me is 168 main jet, 48 pilot jet, JD red needle 4th position.
I originally had a 170 main jet, but it felt a little fat on the top. 168 made it much better. I also have the pmb insert. I had an FMF pipe on it, but wanted something a lot quieter. This did it the trick and its just as fast for my type of riding.

the reason your fuel mixture screw fell out is your pilot jet is to lean, to comp for this you had the fuel mixture screw turned out to far to get the bike to run. The reason your pipe is glowing is the bike is running to lean. you need to do all the free mods (grey wire, air box snorkel, side cut outs, throttle stop, etc. the ais removal kit should give you a yz trottle stop. Then you need to jet the bike right before you fry the motor. it comes stock with a 144 main and a 45 pilot, You need a 48 pilot, 168 main. your needle on an 06 is non adjustable so you need a JD jetting kit that comes with ajustable needles. try the red needle on the #5 clip position or the the blue needle on the #3 clip position. after all this you should be alot more happy. you will also need two open up your pipe(pmb insert) or get an after market pipe
I've never riden the bike, it won't stay running once I turn the choke off. The bike was purchased 1.5 weeks ago, and is going back tomorrow. I did all the free mods this weekend and the AIS kit. I also purchased an adjustable fuel screw, went to put it in and that's when I noticed that I had no factory screw. I would put the adjustable in and start it, but I don't have the o-ring, washer, and spring that are supposed to be transfered from the factory screw to the new one. CORONA YAMAHA sucks!

I put in the adjustable fuel mixture screw, today, even though I don't have the o-ring, washer, or spring. It took a while playing with it, but the bike finally started. The front pipe didn't glow at all and it ran w/o the choke on. I adjusted the idle and went for a short ride up and down my street. Holy crap. I like this bike, a lot. Worthless dealership was supposed to pick the bike up today and fix the problem, but no show. I told them to just send me the factory screw, and included parts, but they said they wouldn't feel comfortable doing that. So now they are gonna pay a guy to drive 70 miles to pick it up, bring back to their shop(70 more miles), put in the $30 part, have the same dude bring it back to my house(70 more) and drive back to their shop(70 more). Real smart. 6 hours in driver's wages, probably 2 hours in mechanic's wages, the price of the part($30), and 280 miles worth of gas in their big delivery truck. A $.37 stamp would make me real comfortable. Oh well, not my money.
