    Bike has better idle and low end. Still cuts out at 7000 to 7500 rpm, but has not been dyno tuned , yet.
    Will get that done this week or next.

    Yes get the Dyno done then you know the fueling is correct .
    The ECU limiter will cut in somewhere in the 7-7500 rpm.
    If you get a printout would be interested to see what the figures are :)

    My next project is lose the airbox, install velocity stacks and see where the dyno is at , Make some side panels along the same lines as the airbox to hide the nasty cables.

    Could get it them etched with " NVH Norton 961 Sport" ;):rolleyes::D

    Cheers

    Especially where Skinner reveals:

    “It was a pretty significant evolution of the original
    961 engine, because the motor was retooled almost
    in its entirety. We have new crankcases, new
    cylinders, a new cylinder head, new pistons, new
    crankshaft, and a new gearbox, all in order to reduce
    NVH [Noise Vibration and Harshness], and to
    improve overall quality as a means of refining the
    product..."

    just fitted up a PC to a 2016 961CR & come up with an easy solution.
    countersunk the front right corner air box bolt hole & installed a countersunk M6 bolt.
    this allowed the module to sit flush on the bracket with the velcro strips.
    swapped the PC TPS plug with the 961 TPS plug using all 3 wires.
    dyno & tuned today & made it smooth & ride able bike.....

    What's the final numbers ? Hopefully north of 72 HP. Use SAE please.

    Came up with 65 HP @ 4800 rpm but not concerned as was chasing ride-ability & got it.
    Now smooth in torque delivery in all gears & all throttle positions.

    Surely it didn’t peak at 4800rpm ?!

    yep, tapered off after that but didn't get a torque curve unfortunately, which would have been real world.
    i think its still gasping for air thru the standard air filter.....has the gutted Norton mufflers & the de-cat intermediate pipes.

    You should have another 1500 rpm of good power left.

    It should not peak that early. Something must be amiss ?

    Had a power commander fitted to mine and got very good results, same as you it gave the bike so much better fuelling for a smooth ride. 82 HP at 7574 RPM max which is only about 1HP up from standard but the ride is much better. The torque is a nice flat line. Also fitted a BMC air filter for better inflow they make a replacement filter to fit
