I went one leaner on my needle and one richer on the main. The bike rips!!!

so if they have a 45PJ they should possibly go to a 50! no way
just do the BK mod, turn the pilot screw all the way in and all the way out trying the bike every 1/2 turn until you feel which is the best position. then report here.

That's fine, you do what works for you and I'll do what works for me.

I think I have it straightened out now.
Just my 2 cents worth.

My original specs were a 42 PJ, 155 MJ, 75 PAJ, 200 MAJ, DVR#4, Screw 2 1/8 turns, the squirt was about 4 - 5 seconds.
I ordered a EKP needle but it hasn't come in yet.
So I moved my needle to #5. Set the squirt for .5 seconds and messed with the screw a bit.
Lots of back firing and stuttering around mid throttle. Also, If I twist the throttle too fast from idle the motor stalls. If I roll the throttle on a bit and then floor it, I can hardly keep the front down. The bike has some hesitation on acceleration and backfires when I let off the throttle. I was testing in my neighborhood so I couldn't go wide open.
I put in a 45 PJ to see if that would help. The bike still stalls when I twist the throttle too fast from idle.
What is causing the bike to stall, too rich or too lean? It didn't do it before the mod. I am going riding tommorrow so I couldn't wait for the new needle to come in.

when adjusting the pilot screw..the Kouba page says to turn in until idle slows, then turn out until idle slows, counting the number of turns..then turn back 1/2 the number of counted turns and that should be where the screw should be. I did it (havent done the BK mod yet) and seemed to help the bog off the bottom a little bit. What do you think?

we've all done different mods, we're from different continents etc. you sound to have done the right thing.
if you're happy then leave it! if you aren't you must be brave enough to try other settings. as can be seen by the above posts it's a major headache for some and rather like swimming; you're best heading back for the side of the pool if you're drowning!
all of these bikes would benifit from a lower PJ AND PAJ. when i did my bike it always felt sharper when i went down one PJ size (adjusting the PS out at the same time and then working it back in again). going down in PAJ size made barely any noticeable difference. i know that most riders wouldn't feel the slight vibration at about 2-3,0000 revs.
but going down on PAJ meant that i could yet again go down on the PJ size and it just kept getting better.
i've recently reflected on why most of you haven't been after this improvement, i realised that unless you are in a bog or in tight woods you just don't need to be riding softly at 5mph anywhere.
