An adaptive cycle question
After reading many posts, I still am unclear on his one. I have a 2012 Bonnie with 800 miles. At 500 I had Arrow 2-2's installed along with the corrwponding map from the dealer. I have noticed it seems rich at start up but evens out. There is no back firing on deceleration whatsoever. I put a K & N filter in and have been toying with the idea of removing the snorkel. My question is, is the 20 min. adaptive cycle necessary if I remove the snorkel? I ask because I did this very thing and am not sure if there was much difference sans snorkel. So I put it back on and did the cycle again. This time, my pipes really started to blue...actually, they purpled. I let the bike cool, restarted it, and rode for 60 miles on some back roads. Everything seemed fine.
