Well guys. I dunno what I did right or wrong, or what's going on with the bike, but it's running sweet again. All I did was massage the air switching valve a little and make sure everything was connected securely. I put the idle actuator back on and fired it up. Idled high to warm up but dropped right into range within a few minutes. Took it off the stands and ran it around the block for twenty minutes until it was fully warmed up. No drops in power, no problems at idle. So... I dunno. I think I'm going to finish winterizing it and leave it alone until spring. If there is a problem after that I may fork out the money for someone else to handle it. Also, I guess I can live with the small oil leak from the head (sigh).
In the spring when I go to put the fairings back on will I need to get a new nose fairing (since I broke those clips) or will the other mid fairing bolts be enough to keep it from rattling?
