you don't compensate your MJ just coz your APJ has been done.
it'll pop on decel as long as it's not flooded, sometimes more, sometimes less but don't go by that.
you can't tell anything by looking at the plug except that the bike still runs.
rich is soft, woolly, dead noise, accelerates well.
lean is a misfiring, overheating, pinking, knocking, open the throttle and nothing but a vibrating misfiring blue beast.
if you phrase the question right, such as "how do i correct the jetting which at present is fouling plugs galore" we will tell you that you make one change at a time and feel the difference. words can't easily describe something you haven't tried.
however if you've had even a little go we can fill your knowledge bank to the hilt.

so ELN or EMM. the rest is out there in the archives for you to see. the needles and MJ's are nearly agreed by all but the low speed Pilot Circuit (PC) stuff is debated.
jetting Qs is accepted as a good good. i originally started with one called "more oommpphh" and bar some amatuer dramatics and me scribbling when i'm pissed it's still valid for your bike as well. read up first and then come back to us if needs be.
