    Well, I did the needle shim mod. After playing around with the new DG silencer (have the db reducer too), main jet and needle shims I found the right combo. 118 main jet and two needle shims from www.jetsrus.com The bike really woke up and is quite fun now compared to what the factory lean tuning was. It reaches speed faster, starts better and runs smoother. No flat spots at all. I made a video of the mod, hopefully it will help somebody.

    No problem. I figure it would clear up how easy it is to do.
