3-4kish; it seems a bit too twichy above that at low speeds just cruising around, a bit too much power at hand. I will always downshift if there seems to be a potential quick move scenario happening. There doesn't seem to be any trouble hearing the Old Squids' in that range.

3K-4K. No need to run it any higher unless you think your going to need it. It just wears your motor more and uses more fuel. Now if your diggin on the sound of your pipes or something, welllll now 'that's' a different story.
Well, I think it is time....bike is 100% factory spec at the mo. Do the dealers have updated tunes for such issues? If not, I'll have to wait for Tuneboy and some exhaust.
It's not really been an issue, but if I maintain 3800 rpm, give or take, it has a bit of a surge...stumble was probably a bad description. Similar to over-advanced timing on my v-twins. I have noticed a few others on the forum who have mentioned this also.
I doubt it. Stock tunes tends to favour emissions and noise.
Other aspects such as fuelling power torque response are all sacrificed on the altar of legislation.
Ideally a tuneboy, but if your dealer is not $$$ hungry maybe one of the TORS tunes might cure, at least if not completely, then at least some of your symptoms.
A five minute job at the most.
