You rode with me once Nate ... I am old and slow. I know that you can handle the 570 like it's a featherweight.
I did try an 11 390 and I did notice MUCH less engine braking.
That bike was much easier to ride fast than the 570, some of that I atribute to improved suspension settings but some to the smoothness of the engine as well.
