Don't psych yourself out. I bought an 08/09 SL-R when I had <10 days of riding, and it's an easy/forgiving board to ride. You'll be fine. I think I actually posted a thread much like yours right after I bought it, and ultimately I didn't do any sort of detune. I've owned a bunch of boards since, some of which I've detuned the tip and tail, and some came that way from the factory. Ultimately I've never perceived much, if any difference from a detuned tip and tail, and as such don't generally bother to do any detuning any more. You made a good purchase. Just go have fun on it.
