Yoshimura R77 dual slip-on

This is a discussion on Yoshimura R77 dual slip-on within the ZX-14 forums, part of the Kawasaki Motorcycles category; I've ordered Yoshimura R77 dual slip-ons for my 2012 zx14r. Reasons for this: looks, weight loss, and sound. I'm not so worried about getting more ...

Yoshimura R77 dual slip-on

I've ordered Yoshimura R77 dual slip-ons for my 2012 zx14r.
Reasons for this: looks, weight loss, and sound.
I'm not so worried about getting more power, so am leaving stock air filter in place.
Question is this: do I need to re-map fuel?
Will the engine run too lean with slip-ons? Danger of burning a valve?
I really don't want to change ECU or pay big $$$ to dyno tune the bike if it is not necessary.
Here in Australia fitting a power commander 5 and Dyno tune is $1000 range... A bit too expensive for my needs.
Any feedback, comments would be great....

More info from Yoshimura

I e-mailed Yoshimura USA and asked them if fitting dual slip-ons requires fuel remapping.... Their answer was NO not required if no other mods were done (eg high flow air filter, flashed ECU, etc.)
Any thoughts or experiences??

I will post pics of my Yoshimura R77's fitted plus fender eliminator when pipes have arrived.

Their response that no tune is required with just a slip-on is pretty standard across the industry. Although you might gain a couple of HP from a slip-on, the flow characteristics are pretty close to stock without a header change. I wouldn't worry about it.

Looking forward to the pictures and review.

These mufflers are bloody great, good sound, lost lots of weight, and the bike runs a lot better (spins up quicker)

Thanks for comments so far... Yeah, from what i've read so far, looks like I will be fine without any ECU upgrade/flash/remapping/Dyno tune, etc. It's going to be another week to 10 day wait for Yoshi's to arrive way over here in Perth... But well worth the $500+ savings over local distributors here in 'over priced' WA!
I've got a mate here in Perth who has fitted Two Brother's dual slip-ons, and has been told he has to have a PC5 fitted + Dyno Tune & fuel mapping and of course bring $1000 smackers to the party as well.... This is after paying $1200 for the slip-ons!

Finally fitted the new Yoshimura R77's... they sound deep and have a mean growl... awesome! They are basically straight through, so not much, if any restriction.... any ideas whether it might cause the engine to run too lean at lower RPM?? Yoshimura USA reckon that if you don't modify air intake and just fit these slip-ons than no need to re-map fuel...

They sound Bloody Beautiful, nice growl! There is a slight popping on deceleration... but I don't really mind that. From what i've read it does the same 'popping on deceleration' with the stock exhaust, but you can't hear it. It is part of the 'closed loop' section of the stock fuel mapping that is programmed into the ECU to meet emissions standards...

Right now I funds are too tight for Power Commander 5 and Dyno tune... so that modification will have to wait awhile. Yosimura USA have assured me that fitting only slip-ons and no other air intake mods does not require fuel re-mapping. The problem is if you ring a Dyno Tuning place they of course are going to recommend you get it Dynoed.

After finding this, I am going to upgrade my headers to these, with a PC V with Ivan's map.

I've got a good deal I'm working on a full system right now. If it falls through, I will be getting the Akra header and carbon fiber R-77's.

MoFo, the bike looks great, you're pic have helped solidify my decision---Thank you.
