Looked at it pathetically, cuz she is begging to be ridden, soon very soon my 1k will be doing more power than she is already. @ roughly 168-172 going for 188-193 HP very very soon, what am I doing?, u ask. If I told ya I'd have to...well..you know how the saying goes lol

Head work, cams, and/or big bore. One of these or a combination is my guess.

OK. How about thin head gasket to increase compression, advanced timing, and/or extended rev limit. That's all I can think of right now, unless you are putting race gas in it and tuning for that. I assume you already have a full exhaust, fuel manager, air filter, etc.

Did your bike stop running all of a sudden, are has it been gradually getting worse over time?

It gradually got worse after lunch on the last track day of the season. I was lucky enough to get it started to finish the last lap of the day.

I have no idea because I have no temp gauge. I know my oil looks like and is broken down to from me running the bike hard to the ground.

I've use Marvel Mystery Oil before to loosen up rings. Just a thought. Take the plugs out and pour some in and let it sit for a couple of days. Make sure you suck it out with a tube before putting the plugs back in.
