Ninja 650 Exhaust Need Tune?

I ordered me a Yoshimura Exhaust for my 2013 Ninja 650. Do I need to get it tuned for the upgrade or is it fine?

Many people will say...
...it'll run lean.
...Any change in flow requires programming.
...it won't run lean unless you also open up the intake (high flow filter).

I did exhaust and filter on my 07 650r... didn't notice any change in mileage, didnt notice any ill effects... so i never did do any programming. 35k miles and not a sign of issues. Plugs look good, MPG is still fine, and no change in power.

But a programmer (with a GOOD map) is probably the safe bet, and you should see other gains.

Can't edit my post... but good point. Mine is a slip-on. And it isn't WIDE open, it's an FMF can w/ a perfed tube.
It's about the same length as OEM, but i'm not sure if the factory box is a multi-pass system.

This.

If it's a slip on a tune is not necessary. However with a full system I'd recommend installing a PC V and tuning it.
If you need a PC V shoot me a pm and I'll quote you MH price.

I would have liked to just do a slip on but it is a full exhaust. I have a stock air filter.

You need a better filter to go with it and a tune. You have gone that far. Now its time to let the engine take advantage of the mods. Guess its not what you wanted to hear, but it needs a tune.

well my plan for the future are to get a PC V and a k&n air filter but for now I bought the exhaust and didn't want to have to wait to put everything on at once. I just decided to get my most expensive mod first while I had the extra money.
