You can take off the SAI (secondary air injection) hoses and hardware to run your pipes a bit cooler and have some extra power - plenty of posts on the forum showing how to do it.
I work 12 hours tonight and wasn't going to check today, but I couldn't stand it any longer, I had to know what the front sprocket is!!! It's an 18 tooth (not the stock 19 tooth). Any way to make the speedo read right? If so, I would just shorten the chain a link, because I do like the way the bike rides right now, but I can't stand the speedo to be wrong by that much.
You may have to live with the innacurate speedo, the '09 reads off the front wheel, so how the bike is geared has no bearing on how the speedo reads. They all read 10 - 15% fast, & I agree with you it's annoying, but in may case, for 4 seasons & 18,000 miles, that's the worst thing I can say about the bike. Also, I believe that 18/43 is stock gearing. My original chain is still fine, but I bet that the dude you bought the bike from never maintained it!
