Thanking each of you for your input and candor on this subject.
Got to the point while riding to work a Friday ago in stop and go city traffic that the bike really, really pissed me off with all the stumbling below 3k, having to rev it up in traffic, pull in the clutch and coast to the next stop.
As soon as I got home, put in an order for FatDuc's.
Units arrived on Saturday, installed that night and took the inagural ride on Sunday morning.
Mucho moy better! Not 100% but at least 75% better than it was under 3k and now I can hold a steady speed in 6th gear on the Interstate without watching the speedo being erratic and the engine bucking.
Previously I had to ride way over the speed limit for things to smooth out - that's a lie of course - just trying to rationalize a need for a Escost lazer deflector! The FatDuc's were much cheaper - and easier to install!
No fuss, no muss, no speedo errors, no error indicators and no need to mess with the air screws.
Seems like there is a bit more mid range hit also.
Thanks again all but a special thanks goes out to Jason.
