Just bought 2012 - Y-pipe and Exhaust question
I'm from Melbourne Aus and being a previous 2003 R1 owner, i sold my bike after getting married.
Just went out and bought a 2012 R1 today and it will come installed with GYTR Slip-on pipes.
I also have bought a Danmoto y-pipe. I did this because for $120 AUS, i'm happy to get rid of it if the quality is not great.
So my questions is, can i fit the Y-pipe wihtout remapping? I've been reading so much about Bazzaz and Flashtune but i don't know if it's all necessary. Do i really need to buy one of these to do any mapping changes or can a workshop with a dyno adjust the stock ECU?
Will the slipons and y-pipe without a ECU retune get rid of the dreaded 5000RPM dip ? I know a remap will definitely help but is it necessary now? If i do by a Bazzaz or similar, do i need to buy a different Y-pipe?
Any advice from somebody in Melbourne on a good workshop with Dyno facilities would also be great.
Thanks heaps and looking forward to jumping on the 2012!
