when i go out on rides with friends that have the same cc bike it seems like there bike are wayyyy faster than mine when they are at WOT or even on the street its like im having to shift faster because my RPMs shoot threw the roof 1 thru 3 gear ... i don't have stock gearing im -1 in the front and like +3 in the back .... could this be why my bike seems a little slower than everybody else or does this sound like a badly needed tune -up ????

could be that they are just in a lower gear, your gearing should pull rather hard since its the same gearing I use on my race bike.

when was your last tune up? do you notice any type of hesitation?

If your -1 and +3 you should be extremely fast. Its probably something else. Try a roll on against a buddie in 5th or 6th and see what the outcome is.
