The reason is you changed the exhaust and intake. You are gonna have to tune the **** out of it just to make it run a little better. Or get the proper flatslide carbs for that kind of setup.

Go back to stock starting with the stock airbox, the 136 mains are totally killing you, you are just dumping fuel into it, probably wasting a lot of it too, ill bet your mileage is ridiculously low.

Get rid of the noisemaking pipe too, stock blows them all away.

Read up here, you want best top performance go all stock with fogs airbox mod only and good pilot tuning.

Get a Stebel air horn, this is just the first one I hit, you can find them cheaper!
