re-sleeving it should help, i don't know what the 9's cylinders are like, but most have sleeves that can be replaced in essense giving you a new bottom-end (assuming they'll do rings too).
118 can be a very real number too (i'd doubt it). my 750 did 118.6 on the dyno. magazine numbers are usually a little bit high. when it's resleeved, break it in right again. be sure to use varying rpm. try to ride twistee roads, but use higher gears to keep the r's down. once broken in (not really). dyno it again.
the first run will be weak as hell (because it's not broken in until it gets real pressure inside), but they'll go up. my bike went up 4 horse in three runs on the dyno. anyway, i'd expect in the high 20's low 30's. 118 is pretty sickly.
