    Modifications

    I intend on purchasing a used Akropovic exhaust for my 08 FZ6.

    I intend on swapping out the air filter with a K&N.

    Will I need to have a power commander for these types of mods?

    I intend on purchasing one in the future, but not any time soon.

    I remember reading that Akropovic tuned the exhaust to work best with the stock maps, but haven't confirmed that.

    A PC is not needed, but may help take advantage of the full power.
    That said our bikes do come with a built in fuel enricher that can be done from the dashboard.
    I've done this to my bike and it works great!
    Here is a link to an old post about it.

    Super helpful, thanks! Going to do this to mine. Any idea what kind of fuel addition I'll need with Leo Vince pipes coupled to stock cat pipe?

    You can definitely do the pipe (with the cat) W/O issue.

    The K&N may provide a little too much air, then you have to add a PC. Loping at idle is what usually happens.

    I have OPEN Scorps, everything else stock and intact. Idles smooth as silk at 1,100, no issues and no lowering of mileage either(till the throttle is cranked back!)

    If that's anything like my Two Bros, that is L O U D. I have to run it with the inserts otherwise I'm too embarrassed to ride through my town.

    With the cat's, no, it's not bad keeping it under 5k (which I usually do). After that, yea, it's loud and sounds really good IMO..

    Local, around town streets, 4K is 50 MPH, which is about the highest in town. Un-less I'm feeling frisky or a vette pulls along side, it's not an issue at all.

    Actually. I had to special order the DB killers. They didn't make it to the end of the driveway before being yanked (as it sounded like the stock muffler.) Someone got a good deal on em..
