I have a stealthy 12 i use to run on my 250. It makes it way more "electric'' if that's what you are looking for. I would let it go for $55 if you want it. I don't have the bike anymore.
email me if you'd like. juhrig@horizonview.net

If that's not enough, my friend made a 22 oz flywheel weight for his bike. It was nearly impossible to stall with that, and it really was tractable at low rpm. It worked surprisingly well.

Get a G2 Ergo throttle and try the #200 cam with the 12 oz weight. That should be good, and if its still too much you can go to the #400 cam.

sounds like a ripple effect, would that mean re-jetting as-well?

I think the G2 is more beneficial than the weight for the technical woods, but together they work great. I even put one on my Ducati to smooth the launch and make it a little harder to wheelie.
