Mid range miss?

Off road I don't notice it and the power is great. It also doesn't miss under heavy exceloration.
Just while cruising at a steady speed on roads.
I just had the valves checked.

So maybee it is a ping (detonation) and not a lean fuel mixture issue. Maybee the ignition map is advanced too far at constant throttle Hi load from the pavement?what do you think and what did you do to fix it?
Its definitly not Pre ignition (detonation) I can actually feel the power cut out if just for a split second.
As I said Its not the TPS as Im running an Edelbrock carb.
Its not the Pilot jet. See above.
Im putting the larger needle in the Edelbrock this weekend and see what happens.
The weird thing is, the bike ripps offroad. it just feels like its not gonna make it to the destination on the Hywy. ... .. . ... . .......... . .. ..... . ....... ..?
I'll let you all know
Thanks for the input

I had the same problem on my 01 wr 426, for me it was at 55-60 ( Its geared higher) i found that by removing the drain plug on the bottom of the air box took care of the problem, the extra air helped the bike run better and eliminated the "miss." however this can cause a problem off road with dust being sucked into the air box. two solutions for this: only remove the plug when your riding on road, or they make air box filter plugs, you can simply drill a hole and insert a plug that allows air through but has a built in filter.
I dont think that would make much diferance as I threw away the airbox lid and snorkle the day I bought the bike
Anyway its fixed,
