Carb help

I have an 06 Foreman, I have recently added an HMF pipe, Dynojet kit, Triangle Snorkle and have a K&N. Took it out this weekend for the maiden voyage. Man was I disappointed. It bucks and chokes at low range throttle (idel to 1/8), I have a 170 main jet and I am in the 3rd ring on the needle. Does this sound wright? I understand that this is most likely an issue with the pilot jet, I just can't seem to get it wright. Anyone have any suggestions.

Also, anyone have a good line on the pilot jet wrench that can be used outside the bike, I have no skin left on the top of my hand from trying to adjust the pilot jet with the little tool they provide with the Dynojet kit?

Do you have your carb vent plugged by chance. I plugged mine instead of the drain and it ran like crap. >>>?????
I do have my carb drain plugged, I am sure it is the drain and not the vent, would this cause the problems I have described?
no, anyone who rides in the water on a foreman 500 should have theirs plugged.

you could have also got some dirt in the carb when u switched out the jets and now a jet could be blocked. just an idea, i dunno. are u sure u put the carb back together right?
what you have explained sounds correct to me, i think i jetted mine the same way, just followed the instructions.

if i were you i'd take the carb apart and clean it out and double check to make sure everything is clean, tight, and together correctly.

you didnt mess with ur a/f mixture screw did u?
i know whaen i plug my drain tube my foreman acts up a little in the first 1/4 throttle so i take mine out as soon as i am out of the water i dont even put a plug in until i know i'm going in water over my seat
