Max horsepower numbers are down uptop from last time tuned but that doesn't tell the whole story. I had a nice horsepower jump in the middle of the powerband, which can be a very nice place. Max torque is up. My tuner thinks the difference is probably a result of the resonators I added between tunes.

Brisk throttle response!

That's just where you want it to be for road use. Mid range is where you get to annoy people that pick a "fight" lol.
Good to see your tuner had nice air flow through the front. Always amazes me how many shops with a rolling road neglect this.

Air flow up top was for radiator (OEM) and at bottom was for heat exchanger (larger capacity, dual fan after-market).

I turned two screws and switched to a synthetic chain lube. My Jamis 27 speed bicycle is powered by as many frijoles as I can eat (for jet propulsion) and the unit is now stealth quiet... unless I squeeze out the jet exhaust for a power boost. After this tune-up the Jamis achieved 0.8/hp at 150/rpm for the short haul (about a quarter-mile), however, at higher gear and lower rpm the mileage per frijole rose 9%. Adding a tortilla and blackened pork to the fuel source I get 9-10 hours of travel at medium-high rev on flat terrain, about 150 miles per fueling.
