Changed the oil and filter. Went to synthetic oil with Mobil 1. Top end sounds a bit quiter.
The dealer overfilled it at the last oil change. Cranks over easier with the right amount of oil.
Cleaned the K&N air filter. Wow! What a difference. I don't think the dealer I took it to for the 32,000 mile check 4000 miles ago bothered to even look at the air filter.
With it breathing easier the idle was a little low, had to adjust it up a bit. Took it out for a little spin after. Throttle is more responsive, I'm doubly glad for the riders backrest!
Took it out of town on a four lane highway. Little to no traffic and a long straight stretch comming out of a 45 MPH zone into a 65 MPH zone. I just rolled on the throttle and watched the speedometer climb. Don't think I ever topped out 4th gear but I did shift before I hit triple digits. It runs like a different bike!
