SOME backfiring upon de-celeration is normal....if it back fires a lot upon de-celeration, than you are too lean.

Yes, turning the screw so that it comes out does make the bike richer, while turning it in leans it out. I highly recommend an aftermarket fuel screw like the Zip-Ty or an equivalent.

I like to adjust the fuel screw so that I get an occasional back-fire upon de-celeration; this is where it seems to run best.

Paul where are you in Oz? And what kind of sprocket setup and tires do you run for commuting on the WR?? Seems a different but somehow mildy appealing idea..
