This post is great!

Already? That map is way more than a year old and more suited to a stock 1200 with 35° timing. The one above is not the modified map 35.
As I told you, what your bike likes only you can ultimately decide. There are maps that may or may not be the best FOR YOU but gets it in the ballpark. Already sent those.
You don't to worry about those now anyway. Initial 2/slope 0 is what You need to know.
Yeah, I hear you... its just I am reading and reading and I might be reading too much for the time being...

Of the five maps you sent me, I would need some sort of short description about each one... I would not have a clue where to start...

I really appreciate your help... it is very much appreciated! Thank you! (and thank you also for your patience... you know how it is; Enquiring Minds Need to Know!!!)
