Is your ACV working? I'm no expert, but I believe it is designed (at least) to stop popping on deceleration. But, it sounds like you're not getting the popping on deceleration, you're gettnig it on the throttle input after deceleration. MAybe the 2 are related? Just a thought. I'm sure an expert will chime in here and educate us both!

Put the JD red needle in clip #5 , leave the 48 pilot alone. 165 to 170 main is OK. 2 turns on the fuel screw. :banghead:

My bike likes the 170 over the 168 (even though the main jet is not your problem), the 48 pilot is spot-on. My air screw is right at 2 out, yours is in too much and my needle is in the 4th position. You said you did all the free mods, make sure the grey wire is done.

This has got to be an air screw deal...

Do you have the quite insert in your pipe? What about your spark plug? :banghead:

Man, I want to say needle pos.... Only because it isn't happening during decel, it's happening on throttle after decel, right? Don't change the 170 or the 48... :banghead:

given your altitude, I would go back to the blue needle. The problem is your lean a little on your high end. I would definitely go to a 170 main and at least 1-3/4 to 2 turns on the fuel screw. If it only pops occasionally don't worry about it.

I would go back to JD's recomendations on the instructions. I think it is blue on the third position. If you are not running the insert I would say you would need to richen it up a bit to compensate,but I have read in other posts that some have notice no difference with the insert out. Check the jetting sticky at the top of this forum and try to work from there. Good luck.

I am using forth clip position myself but unfortunatly there are a lot of factors like humidiy ,altitude and such that make fine tuning your bike a geographic thing, you just need to do like you are now and listen to what the bike is telling you it needs.
