when i had my R6 i had a two bro slip on and k/n and the map i got from the power commander folks was way to rich when i put it on the dyno. it had fouled the hell out of my plugs fast. i had already replaced the recalled coils so that wasnt the issue. had it on the dyno ,so for giggles we took the pc off and the fuel air was right on specs for the full range. i lost the printout for the run so i dont know my exact numbers. the mechanic was a former honda factory rider so he knew what he was talking about. he did say he could get a few hp more out of it if i had the day to let him adjust it. since i didnt have the time that day to sit there and let him play with it i left it off. never got a chance to put it on and play with it before it was totaled. i know you can get it perfect but with just a slip on will you really be able to tell the diff in pwr for the extra $275 for the pc and $250 for the map? or are you really risking any damage to the bike? not trying to argue, im seriously asking since ill be getting the new jardine slip on this summer after my trip.
i spent $280 on the last PC and she sits in the garage with about 2 months use on her. even if i had put it back on i dont know if i would have even known a diff. if i dont have to spend the money on the pc and finding someone with a dyno to make a make a custom map ill lbe real happy. if it will make a real diff or odds are that ill run lean enough to hurt it ill do it. if its only to tweak out an extra 1 or 2 hp i dont know if it is worth it for me. im only after the slip on for sound and looks, not a gain in hp. i wont be doing any other engine mods to this one. i dont have the cash flow i used to have before i got engaged. unfortunatly diff priorities this time. will never get rid of the bike, just cut down on the mods.
