Bondtech LGX/Mosquito Kit really slow extruison help

Hello everyone!

I recently (just now) finished installing a Bondtech LGX mosquito kit. I put a .6 nozzle on it, did the firmware upgrade and changed the printer settings for the nozzle change. I went to do a first layer calibration and loading the filament was very VERY slow. I had to hit NO on 
"did the filament load correctly" several times before it came out of the nozzle. Once it did, the first layer cal was no better. The filament extruded exteremly slow. Not even enough to lay down a line. I took the front off and after letting it cool down and I do not see any issues? Rather, I do not see any plastic pouring out of any where. Am I missing something? Did I break something? What have I dont wrong? Halp please? Thanks.

It happened the same to me because, after flashing the Bondtech firmware, I disregarded the final step of the upgrade procedure

( Quoting Bondtech instructions ) 

" Perform a Factory Reset on your printer and choose ALL DATA to erase old values saved to the EEPROM.

If you fail to do so, you will experience under-extrusion.

Follow Prusa's guide on how to do this here: Prusa Factory Reset"

So apparently I needed to do a factory reset after the firmware flash… However now I am unable to pass the xyz calibration. I’m having fun!

Yeah, I had to dig on their website to find that step… Unfortunately I’m still struggling to get past the xyz calibration. Not sure what’s going on. This is the best love/hate relationship ever.
