I just got my bike back from the dealer, where they installed a full 57MM Termi exhaust and matching ECU on my '05 999.
First thing I had to redo the lower fairing mounts to prevent it from melting around the kickstand. With that out of the way, I took it for its first spin.
Here's the problem: It pulls hard from idle to 6k, with a bit more power than stock. At 6k it falls flat, and I mean flat. I held off revving it any higher for a few miles, thinking something may be wrong with the motor.
I got tired of that and whacked the thottle open in 2nd gear. The flatspot extends to ~7.5k, then all hell breaks loose. The front tire comes up and it pulls like a banshee all the way to redline. So unless I want to ride around at 100MPH+ all day, I'm stuck with this huge flatspot right in the middle of my powerband.
Who else has run into this?
Any ideas? Fuel curve? Cams not degreed correctly?
I am scheduled to have a Power Commander put on and a custom map made next month, but I don't want to spend the time and money if the problem lies elsewhere.
