Hi guys, I've installed a ramair onto my 2012 Roadster. I wondering if I need a dynotune at this point? I figured I would wait until my exhaust comes so I could have it dynotuned once that arrived but that has been delayed. So long story short can I ride it without getting a dynotune? Cheers

I put a new N&N air system on my bike and the other mods like cams and pipes were not ready so i did a PCV and a dyno tune. Boy was I glad, it really runs good now and I have had the summer to enjoy the extra power.

It runs way lean from the factory as is lol.

If it feels fine, it’s fine.

You’ll know when something is wrong, the bike will tell you in unmistakable terms “STOP IT HURTS”, well before you melt a piston.

I speak from first hand experience with this.

My thought are that changing only one of the exhaust or intake makes marginal difference, but changing both requires a new dyno tune.
Am I correct here???
