Hey all!

Just trying to gather some opinions and do my homework before moving forward with anything. ( I'm not one to work on my own bike If that says anything )

I currently have a 22' S1000rr with a SC Project Slip on Exhaust
Was looking into a Tune with a local company that works with the S1000's pretty often.


Loving the way it sounds and pops during deceleration.
However a few questions..

1) Shop wanted me to remove cats, as I described how I like the popping sound, and wanted to accentuate it and make it happen more often.. ( They will not perform the removal themselves )..
Can the Cats be removed easily without welding and chopping away at exhaust system? And can it be put back in easily, before warranty work if a problem ever occured?

1-½) Is it simple as just removing Cats,
Or o2 sensors and much more to go along with it?

2) I will find out what kind of Tuning will be performed on my bike,
He mentioned something about saving a 'map' on his computer to restore tune before warranty work if needed...
Does Tuning always void warranty?
It would make sense that yes, it does.

3) Is it possible when removing Cats & after tune, can my bike possibly shoot any type of flames out of a Slip on Exhaust?
Or does it have to be a full exhaust system?

4) Does Brentune have a tune specifically for what I'm looking for? It looks like it does the opposite and lean out fuel to remove popping.. ( I understand it maybe should not be happening as much to run smoother )

Sorry for all the dumb questions.
Just not mechanically inclined myself, so wanted input.

Thank you very much in advance for the feedback!

I'm sure out of 300+ views
One person could have chimed in.

Just not knowledgeable about this type of stuff.
I'll wait for "the one" to come along, and help a brother out :cool::p:cry:

Why dont you just email to BT support and see what result of answers you get from that.

All the 'person' you talk to so far is doing is getting a BT handheld and pushing you that direction. I no longer offer the handhelds, I only do direct ECU programming so its not me he is talking to.

Very true.
Just wasn't sure if anybody can help answer who has first hand knowledge.

If you don't mind me asking,
What is the difference between direct ECU programming vs a handheld tuner?

Thanks for reaching back out! I appreciate it more than you know.

Direct ECU programming means you have to remove your ECU and ship it to him. He'll then program the ECU and ship it back. Handheld tuner is just that. A handheld programmer that connects to the OBD2 port and does the programming through that.
