Aj2188 Yea, I just installed spools/sliders so I will be getting my stand shortly. I'm going to take it for a longer ride today and see how she reacts. I used about 2.88 quarts of new oil...

Just check the level, you are probably down just a bit and shows up as red light on acceleration.
Bike has to be held straight on a flat surface. If you use a stand, use less oil as the angle makes it look like more.

If you replaced the filter, you will need to recheck and add oil. This allows the filter to fill, starting it and revving it a few times and then turning off and allowing oil to settle. This is the point you fill it just enough to get between the 2 lines on the glass.
