Question Carb Issue

2001 yzf R1 1000, K&N filter, Voodoo slip on. OEM exhaust

After sleeping on, I've came up with this idea. Feels just like my other bike
did after a hypercharger install. Needed the float bowls pressurized. By chance is there a line that goes back to the air box, or a leak of that nature that might be cause this condition? (won't run wide open ) I know , get a manual, try sea foam, clean the carbs (that would probably do it, tries to ) If I'm pulling the carbs, how bout a jet kit or is it unneeded because of the stock exhaust however with the K&N?. Would rather not turn this into a month of Sundays, do it once if possible. More if that's what it takes,, sounds like the latter.

I believe its an unusual circumstance that a K&N filter alone would cause need for re-jetting. Changing exhaust is one of the normal reasons, though.

if you want to eliminate it as a possibility throw a new cheap ordinary filter in it and try it out. i do agree that a k+n shouldn't need a jet kit, but every bike is different and reacts different to what you throw on it.
