I tucked the vent hose under the tank and made no difference. I was messing with the PMS screws and I have them at a 1/4 turn out  from being seated. I have no  backfire at deceleration  and it helped the loss of power at high RPMs but it's still present. I closed both of the screws and the bike  ran rough but did not stall.   Seems like I am running to rich? I have not touched the pilots or the needles  since the cam install.

Forgot to mention the PMS screws are Timb's screws

If your using Tim's PMS screws,  pretty sure they were set to 1/2 the normal of OEM so once you lightly seated them ... open them up 1 and 1/2 turn ... should be perfect.

I had them at  at that setting at one point but now have them only 1/4 turn out and some of the stumbling at high RPMs has smoothed out but still is present.

Ok my set up was, Pods, Tims cams, dyna set at curve 5, 157.5 mains, 17.5 pilots, 2 shims on the needles, tims screws set at 3/4 of a turn out. She ran like a raped ape! sounds like you are getting close.

I know I'm fairly new on this forum, but in My video viewings I found this,

I don't  know if it's pertinent in your case, but still, since it seems to baffle a lot of people, I told Myself, why not add My 2 cents ;)

This guy had a strange electrical issue, thought it might be related with the symptoms you are describing

Thanks for the link! I am going to put the stock coils back in to see if that is the problem. I have Nology coils installed now and they have been installed  for 15 years.  I thought I had a different manufacture coil installed but I was wrong. Bike runs great up to 5000 rpms or so . If I ease  throttle acceleration and not open it up all the way quickly it runs pretty well at high RPMs. I will update my findings.

There were  few guys that tried those coils years ago.....there was enough of a failure rate that most steered clear.

Same to you Donn! Keep it smokey!
