New vision - trying to figure out what the LAST owner did.

Okay this is probably a tough one.

The shop I got the bike from has NO CLUE what the owner did. I've asked if they'll reach out to him and pray they will talk.

<- Here's the video from the dealer on my bike. They list it as"open exhaust", and the baffles are gone. I dunno if he did a Witchdoctors swap or what.

I want to fix a couple issues. The first is it's LOUD.. I want to get that to a quieter level. I don't have pops on decel unless the RPM is too low and then I get one big pop that's it.
Second, it 'chugs' at low speed. The smoothness for low speed maneuvers is not there, it always on the verge of a stall it feels like.
When driving, 25/35/45 it doesn't seem to have a happy RPM range at all. It's not really 'smooth' until I hit 4th gear and 50mph and then bammo smooooooth as butter. Exhaust quiets down a lot everything.

Anyone have any tips/tricks for figuring out what's been done? My buddy has a CC and he's got cams/power commander/exhaust done, his pops on decel like a typical baffle removal would do, different than mine. But that low speed chug is very similar to mine.

And if you ARE the owner and happen to see this. Duuuude help me out!! lol

Try to see if it continues to pull through 5k up to 6k. If so, you have cams.

I agree with MagVic…the Ness are probably costing you some low end torque. There is a natural dip in low end on these a bit anyway.

completely on the mark with “70” and not shifting into 6th until on or after that mph. That’s right in line with the rest of us.

have you heard back yet from the seller and whether the original owner is willing to chat with you?
hi, what is the horsepower of your bike with all the upgrades? how many horses have become, and what is the torque?
With the Lloydz 501 cams, top filter, timing wheel & PCV with tune I’m at 115hp & 119tq at the rear wheel.
and if you take OEM, what were its characteristics?
And how long does it cut off the revs? Over 6000rpm
