So I installed my hypercharger, 5 large holes in baffles and screens out...Bike was great...ran awesome...had already purchased but not installed PCV, afraid it might be running lean I installed the PCV... with custom map set from fuelmoto to try and fit my specs..now it seems I have very even power through the RPM's but before it seemed quicker and snappier...especially on take off..now its just like an even flow.... anybody have any ideas? She smells more now too...the wxaust that is..like more gas of course... Also is there a setting to bypass the PCV if you wanted to...?

Which map did you load. Without changing the pipes you should not need it. Debaffle only makes it louder. The catalytic converter is the air flow problem not the baffles. To bypass the PC V just load the zero or stock map. This allows the ECU to do all of the fuel control. I also started with the fuelmoto map, junk, not even close. You are probally running rich now.

Not sure of the map...just told them i was probably gonna debaffle and add hypercharger... btw I have hypercharger so more airflow into the engine..I just dont wanna run lean and burn valves...but I wouldnt wanna dirty up the engine either...lol..ill probably run a toggle switch up to the bars and set map 1 to 0 map and map 2 to fuelmoto's..so i can switch them on the go and see what I think

Dark side? doesnt that mean a car tire for the rear? How does that effect the acceleration...and is it cheaper to replace?

Yes CT on rear, rear MT on front. Has no effect on acceleration but is much cheaper. Think $65 dollars for rear tire that last 25k miles. Not $180 for MT that last 5k miles. Switch for maps is good idea.

I highly recommend you have the bike dyno'd at a shop that uses the DynoJet equipment or spend the same money on the Auto Tune from DynoJet and let the fuel manager maintain the proper air/fuel ratios on the run.

If performance is not a concern and it's only noise and the look you want, I think you'll be OK. If you experience decel popping as a result of the new pipes then plugging the hose that comes from the air cleaner going to the secondary air relay will help reduce that. Folks here have used a marble or wirenut to plug the hose.
