As you can see you are getting both sides or the arguement. There is alot to be said for leaving it all stock because this is the best compromise for a street ridden machine where you want excellent performance with drivability (perhaps that should be rideability). On the other side some mods CAN give you better performance and with alot of tuning you CAN gain back the rideability too. Its a matter of how much work you want to do (and keep doing) at every tuneup.

What I can tell you from experience is that you will have to go alot farther than just a carb adjustment to get it right.

I direct you to the statement under my signature.

Once you un-can a can of worms, the only way to re-can them is with a bigger can.
