Leo Vince Cans, Plugs, 16000K service

I am getting ready to dive into another winters worth of projects on my '02 919. I have some concerns with the Leo Vince slip ons I am planning to purchase. The Manufacturer states that the F.I. system does not need any modification with the slip on cans. Should I assume this is correct and go ahead with out or will a Dynojet unit, Quality map benifit my bikes performance?

Plugs.
Is there any real advantage to the NGK iridiums vs standard recommended NGKs?

16000k service.
I know there will be little need to concern myself with calibrating valves (I will check clearances) But is there anything else important I should be concerned with? Ie, Cam chain tensioner, Injector calibration.
I am already planning the PAIR block offs, drive sprocket, jetcoat header and Y-pipe, new clutch. Is there more I should do while the niner is tore down?

I have the Leo Vince slip-ons and haven't installed a power commander yet there is some improvement in performance but still think the PCIII will make a big difference as my bike seems to run too rich.

I contacted the techs @ Leo Vince via e-mail and they told me that the PCIII maps for the Satos would work well with their exhaust. I will try it when I've saved enough money.

The Vince's come with the Y pipe and the pipes from the Y back to the cans.

I have been very happy with them.

You will have to remove the rear shock and spring to get the Y pipe in place. but the job is fairly easy I did it in the garage after work one night and rode to work the next day.

Good Luck. Oh and by the way I live in Sussex WI so if you need any help I'd be happy to lend a hand just send me a PM and we can go from there.

Scott

Nice to meet you Scott,

Thanks for the info on the Leo Vince System. This is the reply I was interested in getting. I will plan on getting the power commander with the exhaust. Thanks

I purchased the CF Leo's in 2003. They make a great product. In 2004 I installed the Power Commander (USB) and noticed a huge difference. I can't recall which map I used, but it was one that used after market pipes and air filter. I recommend buying the Power Commander.

I am doing the same thing this winter on my 02 919. I am only at 11000 kms but they were quite rough(big guy lots of hard stops and gravel roads) so I am going to do the forks ,change the springs to heavier aftermarket ones (any suggestions?) service the brakes and install some better lines on the front.

One thing I have noticed is my clutch and front brake need to be adjusted I bet some of you guys are in the same boat. Because it happens so gradually it is hard to notice. It is also time for a new front tire.

For the front forks use Race Tech, you can calculate on their web site www.racetech.com what spring rate to buy. I also suggest you get the the valve kit makes a big difference...
