What kind of exhaust system are you running? Are you using some type of heatshield or an unshielded head pipe? How long does it take for the pipe to get "hot"? We need more information to help you.

Turn your fuel screw 1/2 turn out. This will give you a little richer idle and cool the bike down.

I did the same last week. It helped. It also cured the hesitation right off idle.

Can you adjust the stock fuel screw? Could that also help to decrease the backfiring?

Last week there was an active thread about how to access and adjust the fuel screw. Search "fuel screw" and you should find it quickly. :D
