From my understanding putting a Remus exhaust (or any other brand) on an 05 and up LT REQUIRED r
emapping (aka flashing or a new chip) to extract maximum performance. The same is true of 99's to 04's.
I would think without a new "chip" the motronics (moronics) would sense the increased flow and adjust fuel to keep it from leaning out. No
extra power and lot of extra mind numbing and seriously fatiguing decibels - which is kind of counter intuitive on a long distance touring bike, no?
The '05 and up LT was "tuned" to absolute max performance right from the factory and any aftermarket add ons are pretty much vaporware.
Sure, the aftermarket guys claim an extra X number of horsepower and X amount of increase in torque, but it is so incredibly small
as to be barely - if at all - noticeable in every day driving that it is a waste of time and money. But, that's just my opinion.
I'm sure lots of guys that drag or road race LT's will feel otherwise.
How to tell if it's chipped?
Take it apart and look!
