PAgrom - Actually check, check, and check. The slip-on price is much better than a full system and I did not want to deal with adding a fuel management system because of the full system. The full system is also louder than a slip-on which I did not want. The aluminum slip-on also nicely matches the stock rearsets and the front blinker mounting brackets. So you are right on all counts...

Gr0mkid - I have heard that some full systems do not require fuel management systems because the system was built for the stock fms but the sellers always recommend it because the bike will run lean and hot. Just passing on info that I got when I was shopping for my pipe...

PAgrom - Full systems will always add more power than slip-ons...I don't know how it will affect the warranty though if something goes wrong...

Good to know. My performance seems great, my motors always gotten hot. Plug looks good. I have the M4 system. Maybe i will pick up a fuel management system down the road but seems ok for now.

Camokurt - So far so good. Only have 170 mi on them and they do not slip on wet spots like the stock tires. Took the bike to the canyons for scrubbing so I did not push to the max but grip seems very good. Profile looks narrower than stock even for same size tires. Ride seems a little softer than stock too...
