Slowly but surely making some mods on my '20 790. Addition of a K&N reusable air filter.

I was out dirt biking with these two goofs, my son's.

I also made a Lamb Cake to celebrate with our also fully vacinated neighbors!

I'm interested in how you like the K&N. I put one on my 2020 790 with a Yoshimura Alpha-T slip on and felt it was even more snatchy, so I put the stock a/f back on.

Did you add the pipe and the A.F. at the same time? Did removing the A.F. reduce the snatch? I'm going out now and will pay particular attention.

I didn't notice an increased snatchyness. I used sport for some in town and even parking lot/ fuel station navigating. I short shift the slow stuff. That seems to help. That snatchy throttle is definitely a characteristic of the bike alleviated best by short shifting and staying in sport mode for the slow stuff. That's me, your mileage may vary.
