I am too, man. The more I ride it, the better it seems to get. She and I seem to be getting more and more in sync with each other every time we ride.

Update

I took the RC in this morning to have her dyno tuned and a custom map made for her. I had been using the "fiddy1" map for a Thorsten Airbox, flapper, PAIR, and soft rev modded bike. We used this as a starting point and worked from there. The baseline run showed some lean conditions at various points in the powerband, the largest and most noticable around 5000 rpm and extending to just under 6000 rpm.

The baseline power was 120.2 hp/69.6 tq. He cleaned up the A/F ratio throughout the powerband, and brought everything closer to 13.0:1 A/F. The A/F line was very flat after cleanup, and the bike seemed to pick up a good bit in the midrange and at the very top end. When we finished, the bike put down 123.8 hp/ 70.3 lb.ft. The tech told me their dyno had been damaged by a lightning strike 6 months ago, and that it now reads somewhat low, between 3 and 5 hp according to their experience. The service manager agreed and said not to worry too much about the numbers. they are supposed to email me the graph, since the printer was not cooperating. (I don't have much experience with these bikes yet, but I'm guessing the torque numbers are pretty accurate, even if the power numbers are a tad low.)

I wasn't concerned about the numbers so much as I was making about sure the A/F ratio wasn't dangerously lean anywhere. I also wanted to see if it would improve the riding experience.

It definitely has.

The midrange seems much more lively, there are NO flat spots anywhere. and the low RPM hesitation at about 25-30 mph is much improved. I noticed this riding back into my neighborhood where the part throttle, low speed riding didn't use to make her very happy. Now she doesn't protest AS much, but she still lets me know she'd rather get out and stretch her legs.

Jgos929, can i fix new Hyper Flux Plate on a Slipper Clutch?
Sure it shouldn't be a problem. I don't have a slipper on my bike but I know they use the same plates so you should be fine.
