Cheers Dave I’m now considering getting the puig belly pan but can’t find any full side on profile pics of it fitted.

Ps bikes running great without a new fuel map and dealer assures me it will be fine.
I was considering the power commander but I can’t get my head around if you set up a map in sport mode how does that work when you select street or rain mode.

pk1, do you still have the O2 sensors connected, bike goes better with the rottweiler O2 removal kit.

The GT does run ok with the link pipe, but it does run a little lean up to 5500 revs, Rottweiler O2 removal kit helps richen the low end fueling.

I thought the whole purpose of the o2 sensors where to keep the fueling right? At the lower end.
I’ve kept the sas as I like the burble and pops on the over run, may consider trying the 02delete.
I never managed to re install the original heat shield no fixing points .

The black heat shield? My link pipe came with 2 fixing points. The back I left the screw out. I may need a new slip on though, it's a little wobbly with pipewerx can. That's what confuses me about the removal of 02 sensors to get better fueling... in cars, mass air and 02 sensors made life better, not worse lol. But I have been out of that game for a while too. Anyways, I was looking for an open flash style tuner... none around. I'll take a look at rotty fueling dongles

The SAS is pointless with the CAT removed as thats what the SAS does, it lets air into the exhaust system to facilitate a secondary burn in the CAT. The O2 sensors are designed to run lean as to pass EU regulations, and by removing the CAT it runs even leaner. The first thing to go on my bike was the carbon canister and piping then the SAS system, Rotty make a kit for this also. The good this is the O2 rotty removal kit is cheep, and reversible

Ok, so I order the O2 removal kit from rotty, and the SAS removal kit, and I should be ok without mapping right? I'm using a healtech servo eliminator right now.

My bike runs great, i could even run a quicker flow air filter with the O2 sensor removal. I have the Remus link and muffler, its loud, but chopping down the gears as i pull up to the pub gets me the thumbs up, it sounds great when opened up. PS, tomorrow I've got to go to a mates funeral, and I've been asked to lead the bikes behind the hearse, i think my bike will be too loud for this. :|

Ok sounds like a plan because right now, it does lack a little low end with decat and pipe, with sas and O2 still installed. I had to hear it though! If the person whose funeral you're going to was a rider, he'd I appreciate it, I'm sure.

I’ve also got the HealTech dongle but I’ve dropped the front sprocket to a 16 tooth and don’t have any loss of pull at the bottom end the bike runs great!
The reason I’m not doing the sas is I love the sound on the overrun gurgle bang pop 😂 I have removed the canister under the seat for space with no ill effect, just filter gauze over the ends of the tubes.
I may do the o2 removal and give it a try but the bikes running great as is with the o2 in place, maybe the higher altitudes in Scotland.

I have the rotty fuel dongles coming and I'm going to put them in. Too lean is bad. I'll let you know if it makes a diff. I do notice a lack of low end grunt with decat, but after 5500-6000 I have 2 words... I'm gone! I like the stock front sprocket. I cruise at 80-90 mph in 6th on the highway.

Question, with the 16 up front, does it wind out on the highway? If I'm correct dropping a tooth up front is like dropping 3 in the back, a lot of fun on the street lol!... I've always dropped the back when I was looking for more acceleration...
