The blown tire is not your biggest problem. Your biggest problem is that you gotta ride around with your choke on.

Yes, folks- I ride year round. The ice and snow are a blast. I've had it out in 10*F. 1-pull starts. Gawd I miss my GX340. *sniff*.

Out of curiosity, why do you accept this?

Running with choke on causes a couple of problems.
Pulling oil from crankcase (past rings) is one of them. Could be equated to reverse blow-by.
Given enough time, cylinder wall will destroy itself.

Would the high flow exhaust and filter cause it to be too lean?

The only thing a so called "high performance" filter can claim is its ability to last longer under adverse (read dirty) conditions.
In other words, it will last longer between needing to be cleaned or replaced.

Pipes will increase hp a few percentage points but will have no effect on what the engine can or cannot pull in.
Intake valve opens...piston goes down.
Exhaust valve opens almost 2 revolutions later.
I did not have to re-jet either of my clones.
