It is my understanding that the throttle stop should be cut down or replaced. I have read that removal will affect the throttle position sensor.
You say that you have "lots of carbon", but make no mention of removing the airbox baffle, or rejecting for the muffler insert. Have you cut the gray wire to alter ignition maps? Are you using an aftermarket air filter?
TT members - before we send someone to buy a kit, lets make sure the basics are covered.
I have found acceptable settings close to sea level without popping or a bog while ridding. If I whack open the throttle whist sitting in the garage, it will sometimes stumble or bog. This is not a problem for me because I do not ride in my garage.
Perhaps our jetting expert, LarryCO, could comment - we swapped bikes last weekend. His 426 ran hard.

Chad, you're killing me! Yeah, it sure was an experience getting to sit on the new 450...TONS o top end going on there. Very impressed (and scared at the same time!).
Like we discussed before, it's all personal preference...your 450 being a little more tame on the low to mid end with that stocker needle in there...mine being a lot more snappy and running harder down low and in the midrange.
All in all, it's not so much about how well your bike is jetted, it's how you avoid crashing during stream crossings.
Thanks again for the maiden voyage in Minnesota...had a great time! Good to be out riding again...
P.S. For those that are interested, that 1000K jetting I ran was pretty darn good...perhaps a bit lean on the pilot, but otherwise strong.

I have had a few folks tell me to switch to a 160/50 set up, but I wanted to throw it out to the experts first.
