Finally, some success today!
Conditions were 62 degrees and 64% humidity. I was riding on the Mississippi River today at an elevation of 750' ASL. Since I was experimenting with a new Jim's FF plate and shimmed tabs, those holes were not filled. With an un-touched 800 grate installed, the previous best speed was a 77.7 @ 7250 with a 14/23 DF and all holes filled. Today I saw an average(both directions) of 79.1 @ 7100 with a 15/25 DF. I feel like I'm finally on the right track with my setup. There was no buck or side to side bounce that I used to get.
I can't expain how excited I am today. Since going big-bore, it's been one problem after another and A LOT of money thrown at this machine. Now, I can taste 80 MPH and all that time, effort, and expense seems worth it.
