Just bought, this Honda really pops a lot on deceleration. I want to leave the bike stock for now to avoid any warranty issues. But I would like to richen up the mix to stop the pop. The Idle screw has a tab on it. What's the best approach to richen her up?

Ritchen her up. Best mods to do are the Daves Mods. Do a search. I would not wory about the warranty on this one . Oh and smog removal.

What I did was, I left the tab on the screw, and filed the tab on the bowl- that left me with the tab on the screw as an indicator/handle.

A small file, and you can file the bowl on the bike.

Filing of the bowl is done and the bike is much happier now. Also put on the Performance design lowering link. Whoo hooo I can feel the ground again.

Thanks for the help

After lowering the rear, did you raise the forks in the triple clamps then to lower the front ?
