If its lean off the bottom, initial throttle response will feel flat and it will pop on decel. (assuming the AIS has been disabled or removed. If not it'll pop anyways)

If it is lean in the middle, the engine will rev too fast and go through that range with "hollow" power. Think empty revs.

If its lean on the main you get that flat feeling power and if you're more than a size off it might crackle and miss (like a loose airboot or something).

If the stock jetting is in the bike, its likely too lean. The instructions to the pipe I bought said the stock jetting was fine but that wasn't the case at all. It was actually off 1 size on the pilot and 2 sizes on the main.
