What’s happening Kawiworld. Quick question. When I picked up my 5th Gen, a tech said that slip ons can cause a hole in one of the headers over time. Has anyone heard/ come across this before?. All input is GREATLY appreciated.

It might run slightly leaner with a slip on, but not nearly as lean as if you removed the cat as well. Leaner = hotter, but can't imagine adding a slip-on would cause it to run hot enough to burn a hole through a titanium header. :) It's certainly better if you tune the bike after any change to the exhaust of course.
