The backfiring was present with the stock pipes, the new Akros, before and after doing the canister/SAS removal.
Raise your needles one position, and adjust your fuel screws to about 2 turns out from lightly seated. The fuel screws may need to be tweaked 1/4 turn one way or the other, but 2 turns should be close. I'm at 800' elevation, and regularly ride to about 4000', with occasional trips higher. 1-3/4 to 1-7/8 works for me.

The rest of my setup is the same as yours, except I have Neptune cans instead of Akros.

Try this before you start spending money on it.

FWIW, I have used the H2W kit, and went back to the above setup. The prefilter wasn't an advantage for me, and the bike ran about the same.

Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.
