Removing the secondary throttle blades makes a huge difference above 6800 rpms, especially with a header. Removing the ugly center stand drops ~ 10 lbs.Names Rob

I’ve had it just a few months.
great bike, love it
I’m already doing the classic mods:
currently trying to solve an F1 indicator
full open air box lid, K&N
O2 sensor bypass
holeshot Corbin seat
upgraded headlamp bulbs
add auxiliary driving lights
install wideband O2 sensor for Autotune
raise handlebars 1/2 inch

Adding fuel with a stock header is a recipe for disaster. The stock header pipe is very restrictive and the added fuel will kill the cat. Once you install a header, be sure to remap the PCV as more fuel is needed for the added flow. The PAIR system should be removed or blocked for more accurate air fuel ratio readings. You should remove the secondary throttle blades at the same time as you do the header install to save time and money on a remap of the PCV. Otherwise you will have to remap the PCV again when you remove the secondary throttle blades.Yes it doesn’t drop much.
but it’s a start, and I may get one of those lightweight batteries as well, and replace anything that is steel with aluminum that is an easy bolt on (diminishing returns...)
or just water fast for 3 weeks =]
I am curious of what decating might do as well
