please retype your message with breaks so its not one huge sentence.

its hard to follow



bad gas could be a problem but unlikely unless its sitting aroud for a year or two.

the exhaust valve is there for noise emissions at idle. (some people will tell you it is for low end torque but i actually gained low end by disabling it when i put it on the dyno) At highway speed it is fully open and not affecting anything.

here is a question, do you rev your bike at idle.

i have seen a lot of people foul plugs very fast by revving the engine at idle.

Try something as simple as changing the oil. Or are you finally just getting used to the bike and it doesnt feel as fast as it used to?
