The power tails off just before the redline simply because the EVT mapping is set that way.
The race cam (it's not by TEC, they just copied the official unreleased Triumph one) makes quite a big difference and is very noticeable.
Snorkel removal makes a good difference in the mid-range, nothing up top, but since it's free it's worthwhile.
PCV tidies up things a lot. Fueling benefits from it, with more responsiveness and some extra top-end torque when combined with a decat.
I'll get around to measuring my setup with a TuneECU applied map sometime soon. The PCV is much easier to map with as it's real-time, but I'll check it out on our dyno with the PCV map applied at some point.
K&N or DNA air filter makes no difference whatsoever.
Here's a comparison of swapping out the cam on an already-tuned 2016 TTR with PCV and decat. Yes, it makes a lot more from 6000 upwards, and loses some at the lower end, but still more than stock across the whole range.
Bike with a few things added, such as... me. I prefer riding my bike to bragging about the chromed rear foot-pegs. Does that make me strange?
