2002 carb vs 2001

I have a horable bog when you wack the throttle at any RPM. I am sick of going over the bars. My jetting is 45PJ and 145MJ I believe that the needle and the air jets are all stock. I have done the BK Mod and notived no diffents in bog. I can wack the throttle from any possition and it will bog and will not recover if I leave it open. HELP HELP

It sounds like you need to rejet your bike. Post your elevation/climate and try to be more descriptive of how your bike is running, i.e. at what rpm and throttle position are you having problems, and how does it run everywhere else, etc.
The stock pilot jet is a 42, stock main is a 162, how did you end up one size richer on pilot and six sizes leaner on the main? That strikes me as a bit schizophrenic...
Hope this helps.

Try a 38 pilot, and drop the needle (raise the clip) two spaces. Then get back to us.
Assuming you have uncorked the exhaust I also think you could benefit from another needle, but you should probably be talking to other TTalkers that ride at your elevation. Try a search on "Colorado Jetting" or make another post with that topic.
But I guarantee a 38 pilot and two clips leaner on the needle is a step in the right direction, and will make your bike run at least passably as well as teach you how a jetting change affects your bike.
Anybody who rides at altitude needs to know how to rejet, life is too short to ride a poorly running 426.

Now that things are a bit cooler, you might try to go up 1 step on the MJ's...to like a 155MJ and 150MJ respectively.
