I added a power commander to mine. The factory fuel mapping was too lean for me. It lets me put around at 2500 rpm if I'm easy on the throttle. At 27K I would make sure the valves were adjusted, new spark plugs, new air filter. These bikes cruise best above 3500 rpm, I shoot for 4,000 to 4,500 on the interstate. You can also drop a tooth on the counter sprocket, but that does mess up the speedo. I run a 530 chain with 17/42 sunstar sprockets for a SV1000, along with a Gman TRE and it made the bike much more fun to ride. TB sync helps with idle smoothness, but do that after the valve adjustment. It will need an adjustment, have shims ready unless you are sure its been done recently. Check the fuel hose on the injector rail, those are prone to leaking. Also the vac test nipples on the throttle bodies crack and cause vacuum leaks, I put extensions on mine. That makes it easy to sync the TB's.
