every bike is different, depending on location, elevation, mods, etc. im not trying to argue, or even discuss, you seemed to luck out with the zip tie solving your prolem, but the leak is the issue, the other jets are also effected because when your cruising at half throttle and stab it, the pump is still pushed, it doesnt only happen out of idle, it will pump at any point in the rpm range with a sudden burst. the accelerator pump is only for a sudden increase in air velocity to compensate untill vaccuum picks up and starts pulling the gas. the zip tie only makes the burst more accurate with the throttle, is doesnt nessecarily push any more gas, with the wrong leak, any extra gas will just go back into the bowl anyway.
anyway, now im rambling, lol. i was just offering a suggestion for your write up, i think its great and will help people.
