With a 145 rear it was white with the 147.5 in the rear it was kind of black and I can't recall the front was about the same.
with drilled stock pipes i don't think the plugs will get white, back pressure will keep them tan with some black. i think a dyno needle has 6 notches, mikuni has 5.

BennyD I see this kit comes with all different size Main jets. The other pod kit I had on the bike had matching main jets in both carbs. What’s size jets are you running in witch carb?

I jumped up to 150 front and 147.5 back and only got popping and back fire around 1/4 throttle to almost half throttle but can't figure out how to get rid of it.

try lowering the needles. they come into play at 1/4 throttle.. it's your only option. if you have 17.5 pilots and are three turns out with the screws.. i'd recommend 147.5 mains in both cylinders

How’s the bike been running? I finally got my kit but I am waiting for my ultrasonic cleaner to show up so I can really clean the carbs and install my maxair kit
