Find the best looking screws on your carbs and polish them (I like Blue Magic #1, then #2 favorite is Mothers, not a big difference).
Many of the screws are hidden anyway, or at least hard to see so...

Very interesting, no way I can believe 25% loss with a shaft, as I mentioned Yamaha (I was told) went to 1100 cc to make up for the shaft robbing RWHP. Wasn't the XS1100SF the fastest 1/4 mi....
