Yes, stock map, FMF pipes, Uni pre filter. Had this setup for over 40,000 miles now. Runs great through the whole rpm range and gets good mileage.

I left them in place and put the cancelers on. Mileage is still great and unchanged. I get around 42, which seems to be better than most.

Mine is an ABS bike and it works fine. Just swap the the rotors and spacers. I don't think the bearing snap ring matters as far as direction. I have never had any issues flipping the wheel.
