I don't have any hands on experience with that model,however I'm not sure if what you have is a design flaw or a symptom of a intermittent throttle position sensor.
I would think the bugs would have been worked out of the system before it hit the road back then, and this kit is a fix for the failing fuel control system.
I usually try to keep my bikes OEM stock.I'm not one to re-engineer a fuel system other than a tweak here and then to improve performance or response.
If your bike has a problem,find the cause and restore it.
Just my 3 cents worth you understand.
