Put on Arrows pipe...New tune needed?

I found a slightly used Arrows pipe for my XC and put it on...I have the baffle in and I already like the sound much better...

My question is do I need a new tune downloaded just because it's an Arrows pipe? I'm not really interested in the 3 more HP....I just wanted to be sure the engine would be performing okay with the switch......

I put it on for the sound and looks

I believe that some people have installed them without loading the correct Arrow map. Also, some other aftermarket pipes can be run with the stock map. Have you ridden the bike yet? I know the Arrow map with the stock can runs like total crap. Also, the correct Arrow map causes a decent drop in MPG.

No I haven't ridden the XC yet with the Arrows installed so I can't comment on how it's performing on the road...I was hoping to improve upon the sound which it has from my brief listening session and keep the reasonable mpg too...hence my question if I can keep the stock tune with the Arrows...Thanks

My guess is, one ride and you'll know your answer. I can't verify whether the bike will be running too lean that it might hurt something though.

That would be my concern of running too lean...I hope to get more responses to clarify this issue

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the TuneECU program or not. Just get an OBDII cable from somewhere like Ebay or Amazon and then you can load the tunes yourself.

I did that with Tune Boy from my laptop for my Rocket III.....worked great....I was just wondering if I have to do anything at all with my XC and Arrows?

Bike will run lean but won't hurt the engine. The ECU will cover that.
You have the exhaust, get the tune to get full benefit potential of that system.

You do not need the Arrows Tune with the Arrows pipes but it runs better with the tune.
I have run mine both ways.

I have the Arrow can on my XC and I find it a bit quiet. How does the baffle come out; looks like rivets would have to be drilled out. Would the map have to be changed with no baffle?
