Just a guy with an SV1K
If i was to do this would i need to get my PC re-mapped?
As DVS wrote, re-mapping could net you additional power. The neat thing is that my bike is otherwise very much stock, and I have not noticed any power losses during my commute to work (45 minutes these days). At least with the stock filter, I doubt the bike is running lean anywhere, or at least it certainly isn't pinging at all.
Next up is a TRE, and after that probably slip-on exhaust. I'll definitely get a PC III or a re-flash (TEKA etc...) for when I go beyond that.
I should probably snap a pic or two to show how all the parts went together for me. FWIW, I actually used a slightly smaller drill bit because on the first hole of the "2" of the 1-2-1 pattern. Only because I spaced the inside 5/16 hole a little too far from center. I don't think I hurt anything, since others have used smaller drill sizes to good effect as well.
It should be noted that the torque is pretty deceiving if you do all these mods straight from a stock airbox, or even if all you've done is yank the snorkel. In my commute I definitely had to restrain my urge to pass everything on the road, because early on I'd be flying up to cage bumpers before I realized how fast the SV was accelerating.
Prophet, Toronto is kind of on the other side of the country from where I'm at, but this time of year they seem to be enjoying much the same weather as we are out West. Just under 20 deg C and sunny for the most part. Good thing you're not going there in August though, the humidity from the great lakes is bad enough to kill LOL
