If the throttle cable is still a little tight, you might consider rerouting the throttle cable so that it comes out on the right side of the trellis frame rather than the left. That will give you tons of cable to work with.

This past weekend, I did some of this.....



and some of this.....



and came home with this.....



I saw one of the other competitors line up and just knew my day was over. I've admired this guy's riding for years. I must've caught him on an off day. Can't believe I beat him.

I see a fuel filter sticking out the side going where it shouldn't go. I bet it has a bottle under the seat. Bigger question is . . . what's holding it up????

So, while it is cool that you won, it would seem that there really weren't any serious threats to the mighty 990.

I love my 990 but it's not like it was driving itself

No worries, just had to get a jab in on the machines from Germany. I have a feeling you can easily outride this Bastard.
