How is it running now, besides the poor gas mileage?
It seems to be running about the same as it was, which is pretty damn well (although I dont have any other R6 experience to compare it too). Maybe a bit more responsive at some points, but its hard to say exactly.

After looking into what chief suggested, I think they must have done what that guide describes since they had the seat off and mentioned adjusting some numbers.
I suppose I should try checking and reverting those settings back to default and go from there. I still don't understand though, how it could apparently still be running lean but get such horrible mileage.
Also, I know it's hard to say, but given that it didn't really show dramatic symptoms of running lean before they worked on it (popping or miscolored pipes, and there doesnt seem to be any audible detonation), you guys think it would be fine to ride it with the stock settings for a month or two until I can get a PC? The weather sucks so I'm not riding much any ways but I'd hate to be destroying my engine, especially since the bike only has 8k miles.
Ill check into the O2 sensor too, but what exactly happens when its not connected?
Thanks for the help guys
