You call, if you want the bike to run better then you need to try what you can, pain in the ass or not.
Been seeing a lot of older RR's with bad plugs causing similar symptoms on here lately. It seems like it might be the way the cap clamps the plug top wears eventually. The other common area with running conditions like you describe is the fuel pump. I'd check that as well, follow your service manual directions for both items.
FYI a dyno reading is only as good as another bike like yours on that dyno. By that I mean with a mouse click you can make a dyno say a 600 puts out 150hp and they need to be calibrated often which they rarely are so the actual number is really only a realitive thing compared to what that dyno says another like bike says. On a calibrated dyno with a good operator and a healthy bike with a good rear tire it should be right about 100 give or take a few.
