How to tell bike needs to be remapped with new air filter

Hi guys,

I recently installed a K&N air filter on my 2nd generation SV650.

I have read that bikes need to be rejetted/remapped after going from the OEM to an aftermarket air filter.

Is there any tangible way to tell if my bike needs to be remapped? For example, higher/unstable idling, off-pitch exhaust, etc?

Seems like a pain to install another device to remap the fuel injection just for an air filter.

Thanks.

glowing headers, back firing, or over heating....


2nd gen is FI so it will need a PC3....with that said I highly doubt you will need to get a PC3 just for an airfilter. It probably did lean your bike out a little bit but not enough to it up...

If you didn't mod the airbox or have any exhaust work you do not need to be mapped.

Thanks for the information. I feel a little better now running it as-is.
