Did you put on a full system? If so....you really really should jet it.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

Yes it is a full system......sometimes jetting is not all that important, it is running great without it. I rode it after install and its pulling smoothly.

Yes I have I have done many full installs with and without jetting. Not all bikes are the same if you know about this stuff.
He aint gonna be a pro racer anytime soon like the rest of us. I think you will be just fine vince....

I think it should be jetted. Ask doc his opinion, he has the same system on his R6. It may feel great and pull strong but if its running too lean you can do engine damage over time.

It wil still run strong , but running lean can burn pistons. if you relaly want to know what its doing get it on a Dyno with a sniffer (4and6) and it will show exactly where your fuel mixture is at. Either that or weld an o2 bung into the pipe right behing the collector and install a halmeter system.

yeah it still needs to be jetted correctly, i help installed and jetted docs bike, and it kicked cherrys 4fi's ass.

not to mention i installed Emulsifiers which corrects a flat spot somewhere that the r6's have.

You probably do need to jet it before too long or driving it really hard unless you were running rich to begin with. It can run strong and still run too hot from running lean and damage top-end stuff.

The problems more pronounced on a turbo motor, but I can certainly vouch for melted pistons.

As everyone else has said rejet. If you need any help I've rejetted many R6's.

How’s the bike sound off throttle? I would bet that you are getting a lot of popping, which is a sing of being too lean. Besides if you already have a jet kit install it for god sakes it will only make the bike run better.

Also check this thread off of R6messagenet.com IF YOU CHANGE YOUR EXHAUST, REJET!!!!!!!!!! They’re a lot of knowledgeable guys over there that know anything and everything about your bike. If you’re going to do something to your bike do it right. Don’t just do it half right.
