I don't know about not remapping the unit. The way I understand it is these bikes are already running pretty lean to aid in compliance with EPA regs. Now, when you add a free flowing exhaust the bike will intake and exhaust more air resulting in additional leaning of the air/fuel mixture. I know that most exhaust manufacters will tell you the slip-ons don't require remapping and some say full systems do, but remember their main goal is to sell merchandise.

Now, I'm not saying that their lieing to you, but maybe streaching the truth a bit. Micron will tell you that their full system is designed to function with the base map as well, but they do not recommend installation and running without remapping. They claim remappping is required to prevent a lean running condition and to get the most out of the system. Basic enigne building should tell you that when you change one variable others will also require adjustment or change. Anyway, just my thoughts on the subject.

kris87,

Let me ask you this, what did the dino tell you? Did the pipe alone provide peak Hp. or did you re- jet/map the fuel system as well? Most dinos have a system to analyze the exhaust gases and provide the tech with a fuel and exhaust curve.

Coyote,

Thank for the info. When I make this modification, I just want to be sure to do it right the first time as I don't want to cause any damage to the engine. I'm going to finish upgrading the suspension prior to doing the exhaust and re-mapping. My springs and oil have been ordered. I want to replace / upgrade the rear shock, but I do not want to have to cut and relocate the battery and box to do it. So, I'm shopping for a drop in shock, but I can't seem to find anything under $600.00. I was hpoing to get away with spending $500.00 or slightly less. Any suggestions?

I'm afraid to ask exactly where that battery would be relocated to.

I just do like the idea a chopping on a new bike, but thats just me. Not to mention that I'm thinking of upgrading next year.

Brand new 2005. If it was an older model used bike I would not be as opposed to cutting and chopping on it, not to mention the fact that I'm already thinking about trading it in for a sport touring model.
