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 :dontknow: 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) :lol::lol::lol: 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

Any exhaust including stock could be enhanced with a properly tuned pc. I wouldn't worry about it. It's not like we're talking big differences related to your changes.

Ok cool thanks man. The only thing that bothers me about slipons is the popping on decel would a pc fix that if properly tuned?
