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.

sure. currently im akra race. -1 infront and throttle insert. yet to put in pc3 and ign modual. any help would be great. HOPEING a friend can get me into jamie james dyno some time soon. if at all.
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. :wink:

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.

Take a band saw to one of the factory welds near the cats, beat the snot out of the elements and pull them out, re-weld the header back up. Ceramic coating optional... :thumbsup:

damn welding not an option for me ...there has got to be a pair of headers that will fit onto a link pipe set up
go to lowes. buy longest concrete drill bit they have. go home drill till your done. fyi if you drill out center then work your way around itll come out easyer. did mine but ended up buying akropovic anyway.
