    just a couple questions. with this airbox mod being done whats the solution to the power commander? do you need to have it or not. i have read in a couple places that the bikes run a little on the lean side anyway and if you do this it makes it run leaner. which will burn the valves. so for those of us without a power commander or the likes is this a safe thing to do with out hurting the engine? also without the power commander after doing this mod hows it effect the performance? better low end? better top end or midrange? i guess whats the advantages of doing it without the power commander?

    without the PCV the bike will loose bottom end, but mid/high RPM's are better

    what about it messing up the valves from running to lean?

    If all you did is open up the bottom of the airbox with no exhaust you are fine. Might not gain any ponies but it should be safe.

    I removed my FZ6 cams and PCV last week, bike run just fine with the exhaust with DBK. I can feel the lost in the bottom end a bit but still zip ok at top end. Doesn't bother me too much... if I want to go fast I take the FZ09!
