anybody have any Idea maybe bad plug or bad fuel air mix setting?

Hello friends I live in San Diego close to the 94 I did a couple mods to my XT like the Z1 muffler mod and the snorkel removal and notice great improvement but I did notice the hard starts I started getting so I decided to mess with the fuel air mixture screw and got it to be a bit better but still would have trouble starting and I noticed it the new spark plug I had just put in had a black patch on it so then randomly she didnt want to start any more? so I decided its best to change the jets so thats what I did I got the 130 and 42.5 in there I tried cranking her on she didnt want to and that was at 3 turns out. So I went 2 and 1/4 and she started up! I was so happy I got my gear on and went out to start her and nothing she keeps breaking my heart I really dont know whats the issue and any kind of ideas and help I will greatly appreciate it friends. Please let me know what you think.

First thing is:

Crank it with the plug out, touching the head with it. See if there is a constant good spark.
