Gen 5 Low End Fix?

Really liking this new machine but would like to have something happen below 6000 rpm when I twist the loud handle, what are you guys doing to get some low end grunt out of your Gen 5?

After the obv flash and cat delete a lot of guys seem to be going -1 or +2 on gearing. It doesn't seem to need -1 +2 like gen 4. (For street at least)

More cowbell

Do absolutely nothing. I do play around with rear sprockets but only to keep a stretching chain workable. Meaning, the larger the rear sprocket the longer a chain will remain in service unless it gets a tight link that won't work loose. Why I keep a spare chain ready.

Buy a Ninja 1000, and wheelie from 3500 RPM up. The bottom end power is what is used on the street. And the new liter bikes are big 600s making lots of top end power. Why do we keep buying Supersport roadrace machines, and then hoping they will be good streetbikes?

It shouldnt need much or even anything. I went +1 on the rear, flash, tune, air filter, m4 slip-on with cat delete and bike feels great to me. If you below 6k downshift. Liter bikes now a days make most (usable) power above 8k.
