Trying to figure out

Hi guys I bought my bike about 3 months ago and I noticed that when I first rode it the front end use to come up very easy... I do now know if my rider position has changed by it just lifted up easy. Now it still lifts off but I don't think it gets up as easy as before... so I come here to ask. I noticed my chain is a little loose (does this matter?) also my stator cover got some damage and I spilled a little oil (not much) so I am wondering if any of those two things are decreasing my performance? I have 490 miles on the bike I do not push it too much because its breaking in I think. When I do my first maintenance will the bike be faster?

Make sure your oil level is within the spec,, and deff tighten your chain,,, it is easy to do,,and it will make riding feel sooo much better,, as for the loss of power?? not too sure,, a clogged air filter could do it,, but i don't think that is the case cause you have such little milage on it

Is it possible that your perception has changed? As you grow more accustomed to your bike and gain skill in modulating the controls, things tend to "slow down".

^^^ I agree. Once you're used to going fast... then you don't seem to be going as fast.

Adjust your chain... fix the stator. and keep on truckin' (or ridin')

Unless you get a full system, a PC3 and a custom tune then no.

For sure. Now that it's winter and I'm not riding as much, it's a new experience every time I get on the bike. Feels faster than it was before, just cause I only ride once every 10 days. But once I ride a few times, I'm used to it again.
