Alternatively, see if the dealer will load the "R" map to the bike. Word on the street its pretty good and might clear up the. The Akra maps tend to be overly rich in some areas and really lean in others.....
I think the 2012 models have the same map as the R model.

The bike ran perfectly today. I tried to replicate the issue but couldn't. Maybe something was clogged and I'm fretting for no reason?

Despite the nitpicking I LOVE this bike.

One thing I noticed is that my bike's clock keeps perfect time during the day but loses exactly 2 hours over night. Weird.
