Test the TPS, and check it's adjustment per the manual.

How did it run before you changed the carb settings?

Try the needle at 4.

The popping is influenced almost entirely be the pilot circuit alone, since closing the throttle shuts down the main circuit for practical purposes.

I'll try 4th position on clip, Do I have to take subframe and rear shock off to get to it? Is there a faster way?

With the tank off, you should be able to remove the top engine mounts and rotate the carb enough to change the needle.

Yes. The clip grooves are numbered top to bottom, so going three to four is a step richer.

I put needle on 4th clip today and motor wont start without me giving it a little throttle while kicking it over,Then when it does start motor back fires and runs like shit! So I put stock 06 needle back in carb and it still runs bad.Looking at manual I notice that I might have put plate in upside down on back of throttle valve.Would that cause my newest problem?

Yes it would. I done the exact same thing before. The plate on the slide is decieving so I would double check it.

Yes, that would do it. It's an easy mistake to make, because it looks for all the world as if it should go in upside down.

But it has to be rounded edge up, the flat side with the hole next to it goes down.

I liked to say thanks to SacFelix, And Grayracer513 your tip on 4th clip & taking off tank and upper engine mounts save me alot of time!

BEERS ON ME IF I EVER MEET YOU GUYS.

Did putting the stock needle on the 4th clip do the trick? My 06 misses at low RPM too and want to get it fixed. I am currently running the needle in the stock position.

The '07 needle (NFLR) is not a big change from the '06, although it can occasionally be just what the bike wants.

The only difference between the NFLR and the stock '06 NFPR is that the '07 needle is one half step leaner when the clip is in any given position. In other words, setting an NFLR in the 4th clip would be like putting the '06 needle clip between the 3rd and 4th notch.
