Even at that, I'm quite happy with power output and don't see rejetting for power alone.
Currently, there's a flat spot (more like a brick wall) around 3000rpm, and the engine won't rev past that until it's fully hot....unless it's choked, then it idles around 4000rpm. Thus, I'd like a variable choke as well.
Just got the bike 10 days ago and happy in every way, except for the warmup/choke stuff. And that'll probably get better after breakin.
Mine is the same way. Oddly, a friend bought an identical '09 a week before me, same dealer, same shop setting it up, lives at same altitude as me (5500'). His is only moderately fussy when cold.
I bought the Dynojet kit to see what it does, haven't done it yet. Note that even in the Dynojet docs (if I understood it right) they say that jetting does not change idle mixture or cold start performance. I think that for that you need to drill over the mixture screw cover and play with that. I will start with that, then mess with jetting. Just haven't had a chance the past few weekends.
