Funny you should mention 80 mph. At 3,000 rpm, which is 80 mph in 5th I'm getting a gentle thump in my left foot peg. Same in 4th at 3k. I haven't noticed it in lower gears or other rpms. I don't hear anything, just feel it. Where I got the bike tuned is at 600 ft. elevation. Where I live is 2400 feet. Other than that she runs like a beast.Because the stock ECU will correct within limits.
What however I do see is a change in ABSOLUTE intake manifold pressure running (cruising) at (say) 80mph at sea level and 1000metres. And can totally feel a different throttle response. But Nev is, as always, correct - we all tend to over think. I stand guilty - but it keeps me sane.
I'm going to do a separate post on this. My tuner asked me where I tend to cruise- well, I don't do a lot of cruising, but I said about 80. Wondering if he leaned it out there and that's what I'm feeling. Look for a thread - "Knock, knock" I'm about to post if you have a theory.
