So what jetting changes did you do for the new intake?
If the answer in "none" that is your problem. You're most likely way too lean and hopefully you didn't damage the motor from the excess heat. NEVER EVER change the intake on a motorcycle without complete knowledge of EXACTLY what it will do to the AFR.
Follow the intake manufacturers recommendation for jetting....if there are none as I see with most cheap Chinese stuff.... follow the jetting for a Hypercharger. That'll possibly put you close...maybe, but no guarantees. Buying junk with no support sucks....
As for pinging at 40 in 5th gear...yeah, it'll ping....you're lugging the engine. I never even shift into 5th until I'm doing 60+.
