Going back to the original exhaust
« on: 31 March, 2017, 07:32:53 PM »
Hi Everybody

I bought 2012 mk2 last fall, this is my first bike :001:.
It came fitted with a Leo Vince muffler and a power commander. I got the original exhaust with the bike.
If I would install the original exhaust would I need to have the power commander re-configured or will it be ok to ride anyway (can it hurt the bike)?
Would there be a noticable drop in power...or is it all just about a different sound?

Thanks

If you put the original exhaust back on, just take off the Power Commander completely

Sure it sounds good.  :047:
But, in a couple of months it's time to have it inspected here in Sweden and I am not sure it will
pass inspection  :211: with a Leo Vince muffler on. Yes, I can just change it back the same day....but I was
thinking of maybe leave it on for a while to see if I like the look and the sound.
But removing the Power Commander completely scares  :005: me a little bit...never been very good with electrical stuff.   :001:
