    first of all a 650 and 700 will be jeted different, switch those carbs back..
    for a stock motor 650, your carb needs to be adjusted within these specs...

    low needle is adjusted 7/8 to 1-3/8
    high needle is adjusted 7/8 to 1-3/8

    if it runs better past those specs,youll need to do an internal inspection of the carb and or a jet change if its a modifyed motor to get the needles back within those specs to run best..(mikuni builds a good carb and their sudjested settings are for best balanced fuel flow)

    Id also check:
    for bad fuel, old or water in it...

    my hoses for cracks (sucking air)inside the tank and out..
    your spark plug ends for corrosion...
    clogged filters or screens ( 1 in tank,1 in line and 1 in carb)

    oh and dont peg your throttle when not underload , you can get a run away may also backfire when you do this as fuel is not burnning off before another charge comes in...

    if the motors not modded you'll not have to deal with popoff unless the spring is that case just replace it with the same color..(gray, silver ,gold or black)..
    water,if an issue , is in the fuel, as in condensation..If you had any it may also be in the carb too now..

    ok put the other crab back on did the rebuilt kit and it has a small miss cant seem to get it out
    ive tried every adjustment even in 1/16 turns on da crab i replaced all the fule with new high test
    its still there verrrmmm dhaaaamisss veerrrummmm daaaaaa then miss again its not real bad
    its just there . i put new in plugs again helped a little.
    read valves?
    leak in intake?
    head gasket?
    its goes away for a while at top end then let off gas hit it again and there it is back.
    its like a little gremlin running around under neath the seat.eerrrerrerrererrr...
    thank u
