Akra 1/2 system (maybe rotate the mid-pipe a wee bit before install :) !)

Filter, snorkel, FP chip

Part of me says wait till after the 600 mile service, but I'm tempted to let it rock right now.
Thank you AF1.

It depends on your state.

In Oklahoma, I would say that anything ECU related would be not covered, but everything else would be. Basically, OK says that the manufacturer has to prove that the aftermarket part caused the problem that you are claiming under warranty.

The problem is that with the FP chip, the engine just works better. So worth installing in my opinion.

Whats the point in a warranty if you can't get the bits? :bond: Crack on boys and modify the hell out her. :happy:

That's right. Gotta put the goods on. I can't leave a bike like this restricted, that in itself should be against the law!

Two more things to add to the list 16 tooth front sprocket and PCIII with custom map. I didn't see you down at the Dairy this weekend. I ran into another forum member with 03 Grey BBQChef.

Yeah I got a late start so I skipped Mucus Dairy and terrorized north New Canaan for awhile.:)
I'll try to get there this Sunday. Weather looks good so far.

Have fun!

BTW I just finished the de-restriction job, and man what a difference! Smooth and serious torque and hp...........I love it.

Thanks go out to 43Tuono, I followed your write up and used your baseline settings, with a bit of a tweak here and there. And it runs perfectly. Nice job and good info.......

And the Akrapovic is a beautiful sounding thing too:)
