I don't really ever ride at 200kph, so I have no idea if this would make a difference in that regard, but it's worth investigating.
Never considered that angle in the tuning for my "reasonable and prudent" use of the throttle. I felt fortunate to not get much bogging in the whoops and now will be testing the balance of that, with the mysterious drying bowl question. Thanks for the spec to work from!
