When to change the pilot on a carburetor?
You need to determine this by pilot screw position. If not running (idling around 1k RPM) optimally between 1/2 and 2 1/2 turns out, change the pilot. Another way is by backfiring on a YZF on decel, too lean. Richen up by turning pilot (fuel) screw out. If you go more than 2 1/2 turns to get rid of backfiring, change the pilot richer (bigger).
