I've done some searching and can't quite seem to find what I'm looking on here.
I have a 02 CBR 600 F4i, recently I added a slightly shortened (about 6 or 8 inches) and re-packed Akrapovik slip-on and mid-pipe.
I've read some posts that claim that if you do that, you have to install a Power Commander or the valves will get burned up? So, I have 2 questions I'm hoping you seasoned; knowledgeable riders out there will be kind enough to help me with:
#1) Is that really true? Will I really burn my valves if I leave it as-is? Anyone have some first-hand knowledge of this they can share?
#2) Where is the best place to get a Power Commander for a decent price? (I've been actively looking on the used market for months now, no luck)
