Damn, I would have put money on the sensor, your description is absolutely spot on for that failure, one last thing to check is the connection to the sensor is clean and tight with no corrosion, long shot but no cost. When the spring plate goes you normally know because it drags and getting neutral becomes a pain. Good luck finding the problem.

Are you still dipping into the 800-900 RPM range?

Other than the split second or 2 at a specific rpm where the handlebars vibrate, mainly the left side, everything is A1 spot on. I mean it doesnt miss a beat. Ran it hard yesterday morning. 80-90 mph for 50 miles straight and it wanted more.
Maybe I'm making more of it than what it is.

It's called a CKP although CPS would maybe have been better, and how did you eliminate it? Last I heard you were waiting the 5 days for the dealer to get the correct one in.

CPS is a cam position sensor. CKP comes from CranK Position.
Some SAE Engineer made that call many years ago. Or possibly a committee. Since the MoCo adopted a lot of GMs electrical architecture they copied the shorthand too.

Well it only has one so. Some engines used to have both. I don't think any does anymore. I could be wrong.
Pulled my carb last night. The plate was binding slightly by the ports coming off idle. This was all the way closed tho which it never is once the idle is set. The idle port and a couple of the other holes looked a little gummed. Cleaned it up good.
I'll start over adjusting it. Could've had a slight intake leak too tho the propane test didn't indicate a problem but the front plug appeared leaner than the rear on the ground strap but the base ring both looked the same, a little rich maybe. That's the idle. But I turned it up and I think it got into the off idle ports too which would explain that.
What about the MAP sensor?
