Do you think it would be ok to run my bike with the Muzzy system on and no jet kit? I was going to get a jet kit put in when I have a tune up done in spring. Will the bike run too lean?

Later,

prob not, i just put a full titanium HMF exhaust on my ZX6R, and it ran like crap before I rejetted it. My brother got a D&D full exhaust for his gixxer600 though and it runs great w/out a jetkit.

I would say you will need a jet kit if you go with just about any full. But not usually for any slip-ons.

With great freedom, comes great responsibility.

Well, feel free to try it and see. In nearly all cases, to enjoy max gains, best air-fuel ratios and a fault-free powerband, you will have to rejet or remap. In worst case scenario, you'll realize your bike is running rough and go for the rejet.

Even with many slip-ons, with carbureted bikes, you'll benefit from rejetting.

I have Muzzy stainless with carbon fiber can, and yes it's jetted. I only put about 2 miles on it between jetting and exhaust, didn't feel that good. If you have the funds I highly recommend jetting. If at some point you are thinking aftermarket air filter/ air box modifications do it all now and get everything done together. Some, if not all, air filters (K&N) work best when carbs are done right.

i also have a full mussy system on my bike, about 2 weeks ago i put new carbs on it without jetting it right away. it didnt run well and about 3 miles down the road i went and had jets put back in. its also still pretty cold up here and the air is really dense, so that aslo plays into it. i suggest you use a jet kit
