Thanks Torque, perfect answerMost if not all here haven't got the control unit. The general feeling is that the built in ECU will do it's thing so that the correct mixture is delivered. However, the only way to be sure is a dyno graph with and without the unit, and unfortunately SC have not/will not publish one (despite my constant enquiries before I bought mine).
If it helps I cannot detect any loss of performance after fitting it. In fact I'm very pleased with the exhaust, the bike feels a bit more responsive and sounds ace. It's worth noting the weight difference between the OEM exhaust and the SC Project, it feels leagues apart. I was shocked at how much the OEM unit weighed when I took it off the bike!
A decent socket wrench (perhaps with a universal joint***) to remove and re-fit the header nuts. You won't have to remove anything like the radiator, etc.I've just bought myself one of these! Can't wait!
I am planning on fitting it myself. I have very little to no mechanical experience and am learning as i go with the bike, done some aesthetic mods, but this will be my biggest challenge yet.
Are there any specific things i need in order to fit it, such as a tool or lubricant for example?
Loving this exhaust but last weekend a stone hit the headers, dented them then bounced into the Lambda sensor & ripped that off causing a short circuit which blew a main fuse, causing a breakdown!
