06model running poorly ... all of a sudden

She feels like starving when idling, bogs like crazy and when cold.
This just happened all of a sudden. However I did suspect it could be water in the fuel... Ive just hit reserve and the bike seems to idle better.
Now ive come to a couple of conclusions
The bike backfires (pops) down long hills
Does not idle well.
Seems to bog more then usual.
So here is what i thought
Faulty AIS Diaphrame (bike running lean)
Water in Fuel (bike not idling and performing poorly)
Though of running my tank dry and getting fuel from another station...
before i rip the head open to inspect.

- drain all fuel
- drain float bowl
- inspect pilot jet- probably partially clogged
- clean (replace?) jet
- add fuel and start

But now it seems the bike runs better on Reserve then on the Main setting... Idles better and so on... could I be imagining things?
Fresh oil this afternoon. So thats taken care of.
