Wait, so you've put on a complete exhaust without even having a PC? Do yourself (and your bike) a favor and don't ride it until you put on a PC. My bike was pretty lean with just a slip-on... you're probably on the verge of burning the bitch down.

If you dont have a PC, the best bet is to call Ivan, buy a PC3 or PC3 and Ign Module from him. It will come with his custom 08 ZX10R map fro full Akra and so you save on the dyno tune.

Ivans Perfromance. Tell him MagicMavis from the forum sent ya.

I bought an 09 Zx10 in May and put an Akra slip on on the bike thats the only performance mod so far, i was told i didnt need a power commander but does anyone think that i really should have one on it. Ive been told my several people that i need one because the bike is probably running to lean. Should i have any concerns ive put 900miles on the bike since getting the exhaust

If you put a slip-on AND a link pipe you need one.
