In the meantime, I also acquired the velocity stack assembly off an 08/09 R6 to help boost the top end power. I'll be installing and heading back to my tuner sometime within the next couple of weeks. I'm expecting low 120s with the new tune (~114 right now).
all you have to do is swap what you have pictured?! that's pretty easy for a solid gain!!

Pretty freaking sweet! Just a bit Jelly ;P

How is the backing-in part working for you? I didn't start riding until my 20's and I did try some dirt (XR250) to try to improve my riding, but I got hurt way more in the dirt than the track

I'm sure the other direction isn't as painful
