    I use a small amount of vacuum with a mityvac on the reservoir to draw up any air as well.  Works great..

    1200 is EGT redline.  I like to see 1150 personally but I'd be happy 1050 to 1150.  If you're running 1200 at WOT you can go to the next larger main jet.  If WOT is a good temp but your midrange is high you can either lower the clip on the needle, thus raising the needle earlier in the throttle movement or you can go to a richer needle jet say 2.74.

    Pedal geometry is hugely important.  I too have dual calipers per wheel, but went through 3 pedals before i got it right.  First I didnt have enough brake, then I went to the other extreme and was able to lock them up while landing only using my mind.  the third iteration was around 2.8 to 1 and is perfect.

    Im tempted to go the 26" way on the next tire change.  Can you post up some climb/cruise/rpm numbers?  Im worried about the performance degrading...

    Take the yellow leads off the Key West and remeasure the AC coming off the stator with the Key West disconnected to rule out a bad regulator pulling down the AC voltage.  My fingers are crossed for you.  I got lucky a while ago, similar symptoms and it was just a bad Key West regulator.
