I forgot to mention I already checked for air leaks by spraying both sides of the boots and no idle change. Ill try the filter trick today and see.

Interesting results today after I switched back to the original K&N filter. Without me touching the idle screw before or after it started with choke then immediately turned it of. The bikes temperature overall seemed a little hotter than the previous filter when warmed up. Throttle response when cold was kind of gargly on the first quarter turn when warming up. Once the bike was warm I ripped open the throttle wide open in 4th or 5th gear going over 50+ and at 5500 RPM it just dropped back to 4500 or so. I tried again and it did it gain. Whats the verdict?

That's good news WT, did you just change the filter back or did you try to run her with the filter cover off?

I did both but it seemed to throttle better with the K&N filter so I switched it back to that one. Are the plugs too lean though? I dont want to overheat it in the hot weather in CA. Im thinking of turning the pilot screws out 1/8 of a turn to barely richen then up and leave it at that. Maybe that will fix that 5500rpm cough.

I'd say that plug looks lean but you have to account for differences with pc screens and lighting. Better to be slightly rich than too lean.
