Question about slip ons and HP.

I bought a 05 rr in april, and the previous owner has done various mods on the bike when i bought it. Me personally, im a big fan of the completely stock look of the bike, but i figuered, whatever. Here are some of thd mods, performace and cosmetic...

Micron dual slip on
Power commander 3
IT tailights
Comp werkes fender eliminator
Corbin seat
Zero gravity double bubble

Anyways im going to away with most of that crap, i already changed back to the OEM fender n turn signals, and changed the PC3 to zero map. And now it has come to my attention that a micron slip on provides ZERO hp gains? Is this true? I hope so because if this is true im getting rid of this pretty much useless mod (for the exception of weight loss). So any input would be appreciated so i can start searching for a stock exhaust.

Slip on hp gains are negligible.

Even a full system isnt going to give huge gains

Why would you go back to big bulky plastic oem signals. Load the micron map off dynojet website your probly running lean with the zero map...

I've actually heard of cases where people lost HP when adding intake and exhaust to cars without re mapping the ECU.

I'd guess that similar principles apply to bikes.

Downloaded map is a guess, get it on a dyno and treat the bike properly.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

You might see a bit of gain if you actually get it mapped. But like others say it's not going to make a real noticeable difference.

Why would i be running lean if a zero map means the pc3 is not making any adjustments at all?

They run lean from the factory due to EPA regulations plus you have a slip on. More airflow but same amount of fuel=Lean condition
Get a custom map or use one off dynojet website.

I have that map from the dyno jet website but i dont know if it will do more harm than good since i also have a different chain and sprocket setup, -1 +3

Doesn't matter its based off throttle position not your gearing....

Having a power commander for just a slip on is a waste IMO.
If you're going to buy a stock exhaust, then just get rid of the Micron and the PCIII, I'm sure some members here would jump on that.

The only reason I put a PCV+Autotune on the GSX-R is because the Akrapovic slip-on eliminates the cat.
So a proper tune set up is important.

+1. I bet you can get rid of them and make some money to spend on gas or something else when somebody wants rid of the stock exhaust. The Micron was one of the closest to stock-looking if it's the one I'm thinking of - saw yours before, but can't remember it. I like my nice, quiet stock exhaust, too.
