Exhausts

I'm thinking of getting the Scorpion Titanium exhausts. Do I need a power commander for re mapping or will the onboard compensate. Anyone have any thoughts about either. BTW there for a 06DL1000
Thanks in advance

You should. It is already extremely lean, so adding a pipe will only make it worse.

Just go to the other V-Strom site and borrow the Yosh box, re-tune your bike and send it on to the next guy for free.

Scorpions seems to affect the FI system less than the other exhausts, but I would for sure do something to enrichen the air/fuel mixture.

As for the Yosh box loan program at VSRI, I don't think it is going on anymore. Many Suzuki dealers have a Yosh box, and won't charge you much to remap your bike.
