First, it is normal for the pipe to glow. There are hundreds of discussions on here about that.

Second, the bomb and Q shouldn't have made enough of a difference for you to be overheating like that. Did the overheat problem start when you installed the Q and bomb?

Third, there isn't going to be a specific jet that we can tell you to put in. All bikes and conditions are different.

I had a similar condition. Use the search function for jetting and you'll come across a whole lot of help and confusion.

From what I can tell, you're running lean. Time to get an aftermarket fuel screw, and richen up the mixture.

What we need to know to help is: What size Main Jet, Pilot Jet, needle, clip position, and air box mods you've done.

Read this link and it should help explain a lot too.
