1.) Pull decomp, kick 10-20 times 2.) Choke ON, go to TDC, kick again. Try it first without gas. if won't fire after 4-5 kicks, hold the gas WFO and try it again. All this talk about warm/cold jetting is contrary to what I've experienced. My summer jetting usually pops/backfires when the temps drop, richening it up helps (pilot screw 1/8 turn, and increase MJ one size). Perhaps the pressure is the determining factor. Dunno, and I'm not going to argue why. Taffy, I applaud your theory, but leaning my jetting as far you've gone seems like I would be going in the wrong direction. I've tried various settings, albeit not as radical as you have. The bike RIPS, has no dead spots, doesn't foul plugs, and never stalls/hiccups. If I use leaner settings, it starts to hiccup, backfire, and looses power. It also surges to some extent. It was doing the surge routine REAL BAD with the stock jetting. I'm not saying I don't believe you're bike RIPS too. But I do believe each bike runs a little differently, therefore needs tuned as such..
