I have a question. I have a 08 ZX10R with a BMC Race filter and M4 GP slipon. I also have a Healtech X-Tre. I have been running this setup for a little over a year now. I noticed on decel the bike would pop so I bought some Ivans block off plates. These helped for a little while but the popping is getting more persistent. I know the bike is running a little lean. My question is "Do I need a PCV, PCIII, or something equivalent?" I dont want to spend $300-$400 dollars on a PCV and AutoTune if I dont need to but I also want to ensure my bike is running good and the engine wont wear sooner than later. Also, for those of you that have either of these installed, do I need to take it to a shop for tuning or can I just use one of the pre programmed maps since my modifictaions are minimal? Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

iv an 07 with a TRE and as soon as i installed it it started to pop, iv also got a BMC RF in but this went in after the TRE and the popping didnt get any worse so maybe its a TRE thing!!

If you don't mind the bike as is, dont worry about it! Only thing down the road it could cause problems running the bike lean or rich. I say if you can spend the money on a pc,bazzaz its worth every penny, that is if you care about the longevity of your engine!

I had that slip on about 2 years ago, great sound but was down on power and low to mid-range power was horrible. Go buy your self a pc and get a custom tune & you will want to kick yourself in the nuts for not doing it long ago:lol:


Good luck
