JMann/Neo,

Thanks for the input. I have seen some of kevtx's posts, impressive stuff and great to see somebody making the effort to share his learnings with all. It would take me days to read through it all though!

I have checked AR's site but can only see a graph for the can without any tuning. I might be being stupid here but that's all I can find???

I guess I was half way hoping somebody on the forum may have a similar set up to the standard headers, PCV, K&N and GP3 V3 can, which takes out the cat. From what I've found so far on the forum, kevtx's testing has all been performed with the cat installed, I'm thinking that removing the cat and tuning accordingly would of course make a difference, particularly if making an effort to install the Rottweiler air box or at least copy Kevs initial mod and remove sections from the air tube inlets?? I haven't yet received these goodies so I'm not completely clear yet on what the inserts options are for the V3, I should have these in hand by next weekend all being well and will take it from there.

Thanks again.

Removing the cat and mapping for the air box will make a massive difference.
The insert has little or no affect on power but not yet tested with any air box mods

I'd like to say "thanks" to Neo for discount code. Order is already placed. Now I'm waiting for new bike and GP3 Carbon/Ceramic exhaust.

Last Saturday I was in KTM to collect my bike. Unfortunately I couldn't. The GP3 black carbon/ceramic exhaust looks awesome but the noise level is so high that I'm afraid ride trough the city. Mechanic told me that there is a big chance that first Police patrol will stop me and confiscate bike documents and I won't be able legally ride on it.
Pls help me guys with this issue. I don't want ride with this factory exhaust.

Are you referring to the V3 can?
The V3 is not that loud especially if you use the supplied db killing insert.
Email us direct and we can look at this for you

NEO!! I just put a deposit on my 2015 SDR. I'm going to get one of your exhausts. I want the GP1 but it's pricey. So maybe the discount code, I'm hoping you will send me, will help with my decision? LOL, Canada definitely needs "hear" more SuperDukes!

I now have the AR V3 can, PCV and AR Map installed, and I'm impressed with the difference in torque, throttle response and overall power, good job by AR in my opinion.

I have a k&n air filter which I haven't installed as I'm concerned that the PCV hasn't been mapped for it. Is that a genuine concern? Will it mess with the AFR to the point of being a concern? I understand I won't get the best out of the additional air without remapping but I'm just not sure if it is safe to install the high flow air filter without a map to suit??

Don't suppose anyone has a map for the above set up with a k&n do they?

I got the full GP3 system with the carbon can, removed the SAS-system almost instantly, because of the excessive popping after installing the Akra-map.
I really love the quality and looks of the pipe, of course without the db-killer, but I have to admit the it was a bit louder, than I hoped for...
Then I heard that it''s not recommended to use the supplied db-killer with the carbon can. I requested the new type of killer from Rich and got it.
And as you know it replaces the existing insert, which is forbidden to remove without remapping...
I installed the new, "tighter" insert today and was very surprised, not only was the noise level acceptable, but also how it made a big difference on how the engine behaved. Especially in lower rpm. Now the bike feels and sounds as it should! :D
I'm going to get the bike dynoed with the different inserts, because I want to see how much, if any, power I lose... And if there is no significant difference, I will surely keep the narrower insert.

Yes it's surprising how back pressure affects the character of the bike.
It will lose a litt top end power but at a point we rarely use.

Tete, or Neo for that matter, fancy making a video with this new, tighter insert fitted for us?

I've installed the GP2R carbon can (db killer removed) and have been running the stock map... I'm planning to get the akra map loaded within a week or so.
I'm wondering if I will notice any changes (performance, sound, etc...?)once I get the new map installed??? The bike is completely stock except for removing the cat and putting the different pipe on.

Thanks!

I'll just be impressed if you manage to get the akra map loaded....my dealer won't do it still, said they got lucky once and blew a bunch of other ECU's. :x

As mentioned, I only charge $80 an hour for the how to do it. I'm sure I'm cheaper than KTM techs.
And no, you can't blow up the ECU with the diagnostic tool!

I can try to make some kind of video during the weekend, I just don't have any good camera to make it with... Guess I'll have to try my Z3..
There seems to be a big difference with the KTM-dealers around the world. My local dealer, Bike World, has been really great so far. When I went there after I got the bike on the road and asked them to upload the Akra-map and update the instruments, they did it without any questions...
The tech who was doing the upload, didn't actually know about the new update for the instruments, but he checked it after I told him the required version number and found it. And I was really surprised that they only charged me 30 euros, for the whole thing... :o

I'm planning on ordering the GP3 exhaust with the GP2 carbon can. If I leave the insert (db killer) in I should do fine with the stock map, am I correct?

I have ordered a PCV and will have it dyno tuned once I get the Rotty air box but I would like to be able to run this exhaust before investing on the rest at a future time. Thanks.

I've got the gp2 carbon can installed and took the db killer out immediately as Austin Racing mentioned the carbon could fail with the killer in.... So I've been running the stock map with the GP2 can for about a month, all has been fine. But if you let the bike idle for 5 minutes the headers will start to glow red (running lean). As long as I don't let it idle too long and get moving I didn't have any worry. But PCV and dyno tune was too pricey in my opinion.

I just had my dealer load the Akra map today which richens up the air fuel ratio.. First gear doesn't seem as snappy/rough and it seems to idle a little smoother.... If you have any specific questions let me know.

Good deal. I thought the carbon failing was exclusive to the 110mm GP2-R and not the GP2 which is 220mm. Because if that's the case, I don't mind going with the titanium can by itself and keep the db killer in. I always worry about motors running lean.

You can run without the db killer without having the map installed, it's the insert within the link pipe you must leave in unless you remap with the ktm full system map.
We now use a newly designed db killer that you can use with carbon gp2 or gp2r
