Need a Large Parking lot for Tuning.

Hoping someone can help me out. My bike is back together, and I was taking in around my neighborhood a bit to get the feel of it. I decided to take it out on a main road for a second to see how the bike responded to the Bazzaz zFI and 05 header mod that was done. I have some serious hesitation up in the 10-12K RPM range that I need to get rid of before the 19th TD. However, I don't think it's safe to keep riding on the street without tags.

I need a large, clear parking lot where I can get the bike up to RPM and do some tuning on the fly with the laptop, without being on public roads (non-registered trackbike) preferably on the southside of town.

Is Gulf Greyhound park open during the weekend days all the time?
I thought that might be the best place since I've seen SCCA out there.

What do you guys think?

You need more than a parking lot IMO. It needs a little more time at each RPM and throttle position.

I completely agree. Waiting to get my wideband sensor so I can run the zAFM I have, but I just want to get to where it needs to be touched up here and there at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on the 19th. Right now it's stuttering above 10K in every gear.

I smoothed out the stutter I had at 4K playing with the map in my neighborhood. Its not perfect, but it runs smooth. That's what I'm trying to do but up at 10K RPM.

Is the throttle position a factor is the stutter?

Did some research, thought it might be, then put the bike in diagnostic mode and calibrated through the Bazzaz software, so I got that out the way.

Having my dad take some temp readings of each header today to make sure I don't have a coil out. Already checked/gapped the plugs when I had the bike apart, looked real good.

Increase the fuel % of cells in the 3500-5000 range at 40+ TPS% and that one went away, so hoping it's just running really lean up top with the "almost" straight exhaust.

Yup that part of little mexico is nice. there's a chocolate colored bayou over there that has some nice smooth ground for riding near.

another option might be a subdivision that only has roads built, but no construction or houses. other option would be to have another rider go with you and ride in a staggered group on some not-well-traveled road. at least that way you have head and brake lights.

This. Might be an option if I can find a spot to unload.

Just wanting to spend and hour or two to get it running decent. I understand this won't replace the AFM or dyno-tune.

This was the base map that I started with. I fixed the low end by adding fuel in the 500-2500 range 0-10%. From 10-12K is where it's choking up.

Yup and it's pretty similar, however with the cat/muffler deleted, its not a perfect match for the mods I have now, at all. All this would be probably solved if I borrowed someone's wideband 02 sensor for a trackday after I got a bung installed. lol

I'll be out at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on the 19th either way...but I'd like to concentrate on riding and not tuning it every session.

Your bike really shouldn't be having issues even with the modifications. You might want to look elsewhere besides the map. It will be somewhat jerky without a proper map but shouldn't give you major problems like serious hesitation.

Did you check the injectors and make sure no pins are broken? Is the power supply correctly tapped into and not broken?
