As far as the throttle stop is concerned, it should not affect the fuel mixture nor should it make the bike run lean. (I could be wrong on this, but I'm pretty sure). Maybe something to do with the "TPS" throttle position sensor. Perhaps you should try to adjust the air/fuel mixture screw. This will help the bike during idle (if the bike pops when idling). If not, I would take the bike back and have the dealer make it run properly.

Somewhere I read a tech article that said to cut the stop, and not to remove it. As I recall with it removed the Throttle Position Sensor can get confused. It should be ground or cut so the slide reaches the top of the carb throat, anything beyond this just pulls the slide up into the carb., with no benefit. I also like the feel of the stop, without it you just twist the grip farther and get your elbow pointed at the ground and its hard to ride that way. There also may be wear problems inside the carb when the slide rises farther than its designed to go. When I bought my 400 (used) the stop was removed, I put in the YZ stop and liked it much better.

The YZ 80 bars are approx. 2" narrower than stock. A lot of Enduro riders cut an inch off each end to improve clearance in the trees. With stock bars it is difficult to fit everything on the bars once they have been cut. With the YZ 80 bars the narrowness is in the middle, the cross brace and pad is narrower, but the ends have plenty of room to fit everything. I have a mirror and horn button on mine. They are also approx. 1/2 inch higher than stock. Dwight Rudder and several other endoro riders use the YZ 80 bars. I ride allmost exclusively single track and like the clearance. 1" on each side sounds small but seems like alot from the seat. In a previous post a TTer recommended this and offered to buy back the bars from anyone who didn't like them. A money back guarantee with no upside for him?, probably not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I spent $1,000 on mine, sure hope I like em.
