Cool TJ, its really hard to restrain that throttle finger when there is another bike there lol. The 12 makes the bike come to life, you could always do what I did with the bike my mate used today and turn the EPA down a little to make it easier for him. If you don't turn it too far down the speed should still be good but less punch. I had the Tenshock with the 13 pinion EPA turned down halfway and it was almost as fast as the std motor with full throttle geared with a 12tooth pinion gear. It could still pull wheelies but it was really soft. He really liked it and thought the power was adequate. The other thing you could try is the throttle curve.
Coming off the berms the throttle control is even more crucial than flat corners as your finding out because the bike goes through such weight distribution changes especially if the entry or exit of the berm is steeper. It's great fun railing them and its more about momentum and smooth light throttle and very minimal steering than anything.
