Hmmmm.... I'm thinking that losing 8kg's off my fat arse might just be an even bigger improvement than a 2hp gain at a controlled altitude, humidity and enviroment.

I'd also take a decent suspension package over 2hp gain any day.

The dyno graph posted doesn't really show what happens under 3250rpm's very well either and if any thing it trends into negative territory. It's under these RPM's what really counts in rideability for an ADV bike. Or am I missing something?

I did mine because the bike kept stalling in slow speed hardly any throttle turns (like on roundabouts) Was super infuriating, and was finaly done with it after it happened 5 times in one 2 hour ride with some friends!

I already had Bas at hyperpro fix the suspension ;)
