2012 NRS Akropovic exhaust

Hey all I've just fitted a 2into1 Akropovic exhaust and a k&n air filter with topless airbox. No tuner. I took it up the road but it didnt run well as it hesitated and so on. Question is can I replace the filter back with my stock filter and use the bike till I get a tuner? Its fitted with factory NB 12mm at present. Cheers

air filter makes little difference. You changed exhaust, you need a tuner.

Def need a tune. Make sure the 12mm sensors are not shrouded by using the reducer bushings from 18-12mm. Better sampling that way for tuning if you chose NB sensor tuning. Breather element won't make any difference regarding your low end complaints.

As others have said, you NEED a tuner. Get in touch with FuelMoto.com and they will get you hooked up. They have a database full of tunes for just about every mod combination imaginable. Call them up, tell them your mods list, pick a tuner, they'll load it up with a tune file and put the tuner in the mail. Easy as pie. Good luck!

Typically people install custom exhaust to increase torque and horsepower. More power requires more fuel.
