acceleration issues Monster 796

Hi guys,

Recently took my bike out for a short ride few times ( approx 150km total).
When I accelerate in the 1 gear it runs pretty good, not as fast as I would imagine thought. This was kind of a disappointment for me. Nevertheless, when I change to 2 or 3 gear and full throttle, it makes a strange noise from the engine and just not making more than 6000-6500 revs, barely making to 75 mph top speed.
The sound it makes during acceleration is like a pan cover jumping from a steam. ( this is the best I can describe it, sorry)
I will try to make a video tomorrow.

Few days ago I had valve compression check. The top valve has compression 8.5 (the one right under the gas tank). Didnít check the other one.

I have changed fuel filter today, the old one was full of dirt. The air barely pass through it. It makes bike run a bit faster, but didnít sort out the main issue with acceleration.
By the way there was some dirt in the tank. Service man was confused to see it, he says that normaly with plastic tank you shouldnít have any dirt in there. The old fuel filter and plastic clamp change color from white to orange.

to be mentioned: DP ECU, DP air-filter and Arrow slip-ons installed.

Unfortunately I couldnít make a proper video because my phone mount is broken. I will try to make video with revs display today.
However I forgot to turn off camera, and now I have the sound of the bike it makes during acceleration on 2-3 gear.

As soon as it hits 6000-7000 revs on 2-3 gear and make this strange sound.

00- 0:10 first gear
0:10 - 0:16 second gear
0:16 - 0:22 third gear

Please use the link below for the video. ( there is no picture because phone was in my pocket )
