How bad was it backfiring? On decel or acceleration? Did you use hi-temp silicone to seal it? Might be an exhaust leak.

Sounds like an exhaust leak to me. My bike didn't require any jetting changes when I got my FMF system (powerbomb header & Titanium 4 muffler), I do recall having to adjust my fuel screw a little bit though.

Okay, so your lean. Back the fuel screw out 1/4 turn and try that.

does the powerbomb header make any noticeable power with the stock silencer? ive got a 98 yz400 and i wanted to get one mainly so i didnt have to loosen it when changing the oil/filter. heheh..i know im a lazy fool!. but i really wasnt looking to get a power increase that was huge. my friend has the header on his 426 and it feels a lot more snappy compared to mine, but it might be like apples and oranges. his jetting didnt change either. nor do you have to move it to get to the oil filter.
