I need Advice. Is it worth getting a slip-on for my 06?
I have had my 06 R6 for a couple months and I love it. I haven't changed anything on the bike cause I think it's fine just the way it is. I have owned 11 other bikes to date and I had an 01 R1 before this one. I know all about tuning issues and having to modify your setup when you remove an EX-Up valve. My 01 R1 lost major low end when I took the valve off, so I had to add a timing advancer and jet the carbs (Fuel injection started in 02) to get it where I wanted it.
My question is this. Do you loose noticable midrange, which is already soft, on the R6 if you unhook your exhaust valve? Every slip-on made for the bike requires it's removal and I am not sure that's a good idea. I know you leave the servo hooked up to the computer so that there is no error code, but what does it do for the midrange? Dyno charts are great and all, but some are false because they have a powercommander hooked up or it's equal for the results. Any help would be great.
Well, i would normally suggest a full exhaust... however, I put on a GYTR CF Slip-on... and now I want to sell it... to you. Sooo, If I were you, I'd by my Slip on so that I can put the money toward an Akro Full exhaust and pcIII...

I just realized the title for my account since I am new here. Just wanted to make it clear that my R6 doesn't "Eat Me" I do the bitting.
Yeah I would go full system, but I know I will have to buy a powercommander or something equal to it. Otherwise the computer won't know to advance the timing at the right position of the throttle. The fly-by-wire throttle system requires ALL sensors to be working properly.

I was wondering the same thing about two bros. I have the slip-on which makes it sound great, but does nothing performance-wise. I wish I could just order the headers but I think I remember somebody saying you coudnt..for two bros anyways.
