Does this mean you have a full exhaust sytem or a slip on muffler with a midpipe that eliminates the cataytic conv. Go to Power Commander.com click on the map section (with your year and model bike & your type P. C.) and see if you can find an equivalent exhaust set-up. Their downloadable maps often offer a good starting point for mapping. I've done this on many bikes with different exhaust configurations with pretty good starting point results.

i have the hotbodies MGP slip on with the stocker boom box still attached, i was thinking of getting a power commander V as well but was just wondering if it would even be beneficial, or should i just get the two brothers racing juicebox what would you guys do? I dont want to have to stick the 10 on a dyno either. I am sure i will be doing more exhuast modifications in the future when money permits (i mean when my wife permits) Dyno jet doesnt even have a map for a hotbodies MGP so i wouldnt even know where to start.

The cat is in the collector, If you didn't replace the header... the cat is still there.

The first thing i would do is save up for a real exhaust system, because that Hotbodies MGP is nothing but a bling, bling piece of crap that produces no power at all. Check Ebay and craigslist. You can get some pretty good deals there.

Ya thats a thought if you have all kinds of money to blow. Personaly i think it sounds better and i havn't had any problems with it. Opinions are opinions i guess.

Slipons are for making noise, and it is normal to have a loss in power. With the right setup you could stay even or maybe gain 1 or 2 hp, but again most will be negative.

If you want a little more power you need a full system. If you are only interested in noise a slipon will do.

Well i guess what im trying to ask is, will a power commander or a juicebox compensate for that? i havn't really noticed any power decrease though
