    Hello all,
    Has anyone found any problems with standard fuelling with any of the Delkevic slip-ons on a Gen 1?
    Thanks in advance.

    The bike has stock headers with cat, btw - just the slip-on.

    The slip on doesn't change pretty much anything as far as  fuelling needs, the stock can is fairly wide open too, if you're having issues it's likely just the bike, stock form isn't fantastic.

     :084: interesting, so you've had experience of fitting one.. must go for a ride and buy you a buttie...  :001:

    I think I've seen some complains about the Black Widow headers in S1000 forums, lacking in midrange or smth that has to do with the headers not having balance connections between them :084:

    That's interesting, maybe Antares can comment.. I wouldn't want to lose any mid range, I do like a bike that pulls hard at any revs, not much need for the top end these beasts can do..  :084:

    That's a definite no. The bike picked up noticeable midrange even without a tune. There is a dip in power around 2.5k without a tune that doesn't help low RPM throttle response but above that, clean as a whistle.
