running rich? What to do?

so transplanted the 04 motor into the 00 frame. had to modify the stock airbox just a little (cut the part off that extends to the frame and shorten it, the engine side of the ram air tubes) Well when the bike runs it runs really rich, so much so that when i rev it, black smoke comes out of the pipe and on quick deceleration it pops and shoots out a blue flame or 3. Now when i swapped the motor i had to do some cutting and welding on the tank so i bought some tank sealer to make sure i had no leaks. ended up havin to wash it out afterwards with water so i put some HEET in the gas to remove the water. Obviously i will burn this tank of gas up and get some good gas before makin any engine tuning changes but does anyone have any tips, anything i should check to make this thing run a little better?

p.s. i also had to turn the engine idle screw quiet a bit as it was idling at like 800rpm. now its at about 12-1300 but if i rev it real quick and close throttle, when the motor returns to idle speed it will often times shut off. i dont know if i had to turn it up to compensate for it running bad or just because it was to low.

should i make things easy and get a power commander and have it tuned?

motor is stock with BMC street filter and a yosh bolt on.

oh and i put it in dealer mode and everything is A-OK, no codes, no FI light, starts first try....just wont idle to well after first crack of the throttle(i assume that means after the cold start system is disengaged by movin the throttle) and has above problems

For best results have it dyno tuend, i had a 600 that was running rich and i had it jeted dynojet and they sucked , took it to wrw racing in cypriss? west of houston he rejeted the bike with factory pro jets and dyno tuend and it ran great after that. i just thought that if the the problem was to the point of shooting flames you might want to have a pro do it!

I can tune it with my Yosh box, although you may have another problem. Bring it by and I'll check it out. I've been wanting to see the finished product anyways.
