Diet.

You, bike or both

I've put in a K&N filter and Staintune exhaust which makes it quicker, but not faster or stronger. As in quicker throttle response and acceleration, but not higher top speed or more oomph to lift thj front over logs on throttle alone. I hear you only get something like 1hp with a fuelnanny so I've opted against t so far.

PAMI in Holland has a 90hp kit for it. Only cost 8000,- .....

Thanks Gravel Seeker. Just need a little more lower end. Exhaust seems to be the only option I have come up with. How about power comander?

If you're interested in more lower end grunt and not concerned about top speed, changing your sprockets to new ratios could help.

Yeah, 15 tooth front sprocket actually helps a lot for 2nd, 3rd, 4th type of riding. 15/49 might be a nice combo
More as a joke than anything else I was give a set of 13/49 sprockets for my birthday a couple of years back. Pulls wheelies in 2nd on throttle and top speed is about 115-120km/h (75mp/h). Fun, but not practical at all.
