you should be able to run on the existing map, obviously what that will do is reduce your backpressure a bit...but how much depends on how much you had cut down. a few inches shouldn't affect you much at all...the more ya cut down, the more it may affect your tune, while moving the power band up the rev range just a bit. dunno how serious you are about having the bike at it's extreme tip top tuning, but as long as it's only a few inches cut down, should be ok. personal preference tho if you want to take it in and have it remapped, but no, not something you will "have" to do.

People often mistake my patience for laziness.

you'll be fine, cutting a few inches off the exhaust canister does not or will not affect anything that has to do with tuning or back pressure.i've cut down cans and tuned countless bikes myself too but i wouldn't even think about a dyno tune unless you're running a full exhaust with a few mods and want to get every single ounce of power out of the bike or if you have that kind of cash to throw around.

Not really, i know guys who run open headers at the strip and they use the same map as when they run their street set up. run the bike and see if there are any dead or flat spots thru the rpm's n rev range. that will tell you 110% for sure.

yea getting rid of the air injection will help that...but i like the popping if it's not too overly done. 9-10 inches will effect the pressure in the exhaust, but again, who knows how much...may be neglegable. best advice is like tym10er said, feel for flat spots and/or lean areas and see how she rides. if you're happy with it still, you're golden. but if you have the money to spend and care enough to squeeze every last bit of potential out of the setup you have...by all means. dyno it up. but with the stock headers and exhaust servo and same air filter...etc...as before the tune, you should be fine!

That popping on the decel is because of the emission controls.
That thread that TMY10ER gave you will tell you how to install smog block off plates that will stop the popping.
