Any chance you can do an A<-->B (swap) test and have your buddy ride your bike and see if the results are the same? Maybe it is riding style, differences in gear+rider weight?

Yea that was the last thing I expected myself. His bike had more miles then mine, that could be it, as the moving parts were more friendly with each other. I could blame the computer, but he put in less gas each time we stopped. I am hauling more lard then he. The 17 tooth is nice on the road, as I wasn't looking for that 7th gear on the tar.
