Just got my system installed on my r1m, I put 200 miles on it already without getting a tune yet, is that okay?

I wasn’t going to skip the tune. I’ve been riding with no tune for about 400 miles since I got the exhaust, I plan on getting the tune in a couple of days. I wanted to know if I was damaging the bike by riding with no tune.

i understood that, all i meant is exactly what i posted.. its not a good idea,
400 miles is almost a full break-in period so its not exactly 'around the corner'.

its just a 'good idea' to find out what AFR its running at, and tune it.. for best engine longevity
and assist in maintenance requirements.. damage tends to happen in a 'gradual' basis but
results vary greatly pending even on how the bike is ridden.. This is what makes it such a
difficult question to answer.
