Staintune exhaust question

Anyone who has installed a Staintune exhaust in a f.i. bike :
How much did it affect your f.i. ? That is, did you need a remap afterward or was it pretty much fine out of the box?
There's a Staintune slip-on set coming in the next day or so for my 02' DL1000 and noone in that group has dealt with this combination yet. BMW guys/gals might come closest on this one. (big displacement, twin cylinder f.i. bike)
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Staintune Product - does it work ?

Yeah mate. Running a staintune collector and muffler on a '96 R1100GS. No surging problem, nice note, not too loud. Every now and again, not frequent, there is a minor "pop " in the exhaust on over run, indicating a slighly lean mixture, or a possible exhaust leak.
As it is infrequent, I couldn't really bother with it.
In short, Staintune make a quality product worthy of the investment. Of course, here in Oz, Satintune are bought by more riders than any other stainless steel exhaust.
I don't have any affiliation with the company, but have had their prodict on a couple of bikes over the past 15 years and they've never disappointed.

Agree. My GS ran fine with a Staintune, though the plugs turned a bit too light for my taste thanks to the Moronic's failure to make the mixture rich enough. I think your bike should be fine, as Staintunes are designed to run on stock jetting.

V-Strom with Staintune exhaust.

The pipes came in this morning. The shop owner called and woke me up to tell me. I was there in 30 minutes and had the old pipes off and the new ones on in 15 more (really). It was as easy as it gets. I didn't even have to remove my GiVi saddlebag mounts to do it. They look fantastic and sound more aggressive than stock - without being TOO loud.....unless I remove the end cap baffles. Then it sounds like a RC51, according to one of the customers that came by as I fired it up for the first time. I richened the mixture slightly in mid and hi range with the PCIII and then took it for a spin. On the highway, it's as quiet as can be. Just a nice bass thrum back there somewhere letting me know I'm not riding with stock pipes. In town, the bike runs as it should without drawing unwanted attention.

Yep, 'Tunes sound great with the baffles in on big V-twins, without being too loud. Nicely done, Ed!

Oy! Me thinks my Yellow Strom needs aftermarket pipes too! I think I'll have to see who can order some in.

Staintunes are nice, durable pipes. My second choice after Erion --lifetime guarantee, never needs repacking -- but only made for a few Hondas.

Pipe source

CBT Imports got the DL1000 Staintunes for me. Apparently, my order took care of the last set from the latest shipment. So, it could be a little while before more come into the 'States.
