It's important that you change the CCT's at that mileage, whether manual or new OEM ones is up to you, there are upsides to either choice.

That sounds like a typical carb hickup. You could be slightly lean or the carbs need to be sync'd. 95% chance it's along those lines. Well tuned carbs don't do that, but it's fairly common on these bikes.

Third, I wouldn't mess with the dyno kit personally. Just tune the carbs well, aka look at the baseline "carb setup" thread that 8541Hawk wrote.

Yeah I'd say it's a little lean at idle causing the hiccup. Possibly turn the fuel screws out a little or try re-jetting according to the carb jetting thread. It's a good place to start jetting wise. I also vote to ditch the Dyno-jet jet kit. They are far from a favorite on the forum.

Don't forget to adjust the TPS.
