It's not struggling Chris, if anything I am bogging it down a bit not wanting to go back to 1st gear in a hairpin turn as it can be a little snatchy in 1st sometimes. It goes like stink.

I have used a Boosterplug on my K and it works. But it is not some magic pill, be all cure all. Be realistic in your expectations. If the bike is stock, it works pretty good. Not perfect, but likely...

I'd pretty much wouldn't want to to ride any bike 800 miles in a day. That would mean highly boring riding and I don't ride to be bored.
